A woman named Jesse (Jemma Dallender) wakes up after a car crash to find the world overwhelmed with zombies. STRAIN 100 follows Jesse’s long journey to survive the outbreak of a virus that causes people to rise from the grave and eat human flesh. Good thing she packed some guns and lots of ammo.

You know, it’s been a while since I’ve sat down and watched a straight up, no frills, zombie action horror movie. There was a time when every other horror movie released had zombies of some kind in it. Mutant zombies. Redneck zombies. Zombie animals. Midget zombies. Alien zombies. You name it, there most likely was a zombie movie about it. Then the zombie craze died down and it seemed people avoided releasing anything zombie related. Sure there were a few exceptions, but for the most part, the horror movie landscape, once filled with the shambling undead, was now barren.

Absence really does make the heart grow fonder as watching STRAIN 100 turned out to be a fun time. It’s truly nothing special. A girl runs from one place to another, surviving by the skin of her teeth and meeting people good and bad along the way. Eventually she gets tied down with some little girl and the two of them take to the road. But for the most part, it’s just your typical zombie movie. Because of that, I liked it.

The action isn’t revolutionary, but I will say I was never bored with STRAIN 100. STRAIN 100 doesn’t try to be anything it isn’t and really wants to appeal to the lowest common denominator. It’s got hot chicks, big guns, and hot chicks killing zombies with big guns. At the end, Jesse meets up with another even hotter chick and both of them John Wick their way through a horde of zombies and then take off on a motorcycle to kill more.

So if you’re like me and felt THE WALKING DEAD’s morose drama drained of all enthusiasm out of my love for zombie movies, I suggest you check out STRAIN 100. It’s not deep. It’s got no frills. And a very light budget. But the important thing is that STRAIN 100 simply delivers the basics and does it capably. While there is drama and characters to invest in, for the most part, it knows what you want to see in a zombie movie and delivers just that.
