Blood Creek (2009)
When a family agrees to host an occult-obsessed Nazi scholar in their West Virginia farmhouse prior to World War II, they're transformed into his undead slaves and must kidnap local victims to feed his bloodlust. Years later, an abducted war hero (Dominic Purcell) breaks free from the zombie family's clutches, rounds up his brother (Henry Cavill) and returns to the wilderness for payback. Joel Schumacher directs this supernatural horror flick.
Didn't quite cut it for me. Although the film is high quality it definitely has that straight-to-video feel. The story was rushed and left a lot of important stuff out. No character development or anything. Also, I'm not sure why people are calling this a zombie flick cuz it's not, it's just a standard supernatural horror movie that isn't scary at all. I'm very surprised this is a Joel Schumacher film, he can do so much better.
