STATE OF EMERGENCY: A Review (Image Entertainment)

soeguysImage Entertainment brings us their latest post apocalyptic zombie fest in STATE OF EMERGENCY. The same zombie shit we’ve seen over and over again. While we can always make adjustments to the story at hand or the people involved, unless the writer throws in some kind of twist, it’s all pretty much the same. Strong male protagonist.
