Early Review: Zoombies 2 (2019)
Zombie animals rise up yet again in a new animal preserve, threatening those who work there, and the world!
REVIEW: The first Zoombies is one of my personal favorite Asylum movies, right behind Age of Dinosaurs, Triassic World, and 6-Headed Shark Attack, so suffice to say I was pretty excited when Asylum sent me a screener copy of Zoombies 2 to review, which up until about a week ago I didn't even know was coming out.
For the most part, this movie is entirely stand alone from the first movie, save for one short scene towards the end that ties it directly in (I won't spoil that scene here, but it was definitely an unexpected and fun one). This movie takes place at a entirely different animal preserve from the first, and deals with poachers that break in to hunt the animals, except one of the poison darts they use isn't poison but the formula discovered in the first movie, unleashing the animal zombie virus upon this place, causing the surviving poachers and park staff to have to work together to survive this new killer animal outbreak.
Also along those lines of fun, we get to see some familiar 'zombie' animals back, like the monkeys, hippos, and rhinos, but we also get tons of new ones like meerkats, snakes, crocodiles, and my personal favorite of the movie - the killer porcupines that can shoot their quills as projectiles! The killer wild animal attack scenes in this movie are just totally...well...wild (haha)! Although it is sadly missing a big recurring 'main' threat to latch onto and get excited about every time it pops on screen, like Kifo the Gorilla from the first movie.
