Plaga Zombie: American Invasion (2021)

The American sequel/remake of Plaga Zombie not only has the blessing Pablo Parés and Hernán Sáez, but they helped Garry Medeiros (who co-wroe the script with Cheryl LePan and Walter Rivero) to direct the movie. Instead of Bill Johnson, John West and Max Giggs, the American heroes are Nash Walker (Corey Spencer), Sam Samson (Matthew Hill), and Manny Distefano (Ben Tolosa) along with a mercenary named Kobra Guevara (Walter Rivero). But seeing as how Sam worships the wrestling of John West, there’s a good chance he’ll show up.

Twnety years after the events of the original trilogy, aliens rppear in New England where they introduce a new virus in New Bedford, Massachusetts. The government follows the same plans as Argentina, as they detach the city from the U.S. and send it floating into the ocean.

If you’ve seen the original films, there isn’t much here that will surprise you. That said, it has a total rainbow wave of zombies in color, shape, size and blood hue. It’s also unafraid to have shocking levels of gore, which makes me happy, because I was worried that it would back off a bit. Nope.

Writer and director Garry Mederios discovered the Plaga Zombie series after watching the Fangoria released DVD. He loved the movies so much that he contacted the filmmakers via e-mail and they became friends. He jokingly suggested making an American-based Plaga Zombie film and FARSA, who made the originals, loved the idea.

I’m here for another if they decide to make it.

You can watch this on Tubi.
