Really good watch, could watch again, and can recommend. While this is a trip in the way back machine, it was surprising to see Sandra Bullock "She's All That" almost 10 years earlier, and it didn't work then either. While I think the mind control substance concept is great, there is an even better zombie movie to be had in this. But they do an excellent job presenting the story, and it's got a lot of good humor to it as well.
