Zombie Diaries 2 (2011) Review

Zombie Diaries 2 is a 2011 British horror film directed by Michael Bartlett and Kevin Gates. The film is a sequel to The Zombie Diaries (2006) and stars Neil Maskell, Cian Barry, and Alex Reid. The film follows a group of survivors who are trying to escape from a group of zombies. The film was released on DVD and Blu-ray on September 27, 2011.

The film starts with a group of survivors who are trying to escape from a group of zombies. The group is led by a man named Michael (Neil Maskell), who is trying to find a way to safety. The group is also followed by a woman named Sarah (Cian Barry), who is also trying to find a way to safety. The group eventually comes across a group of people who are also trying to escape from the zombies. The group then decides to help the people escape. The film then ends with the group of survivors being safe.

I was a great fan of the original Zombie Diaries, and it was a great pleasure to interview director Michael Bartlett when I was writing for d3rang3d – Michael Bartlett Interview – and I’m glad to say that this avoids the perils of sequelitis and delivers a solid zombie treat.

England is a bit of a zombie riddled shithole now, and soldiers are persona non gratis with other survivors, let’s just say that their handling of the initial outbreak – told in flashback – was less than subtle or humanitarian. But, there are some survivors in Rotterdam, it seems as good a place to make for as any, so off our soldiers go into a wasteland of zombies, marauding ‘outlaw’ gangs of survivors, and a whole host of mouldering corpses.

I’ll say it right out, I hate shaky cam films with a passion for the most part, they shake around like they are wielded by an epileptic who is jerking off and generally do everyones head in. Both this, and the original Zombie Diaries, are a rare exception, it adds to the whole experience and is done well.

The zombies are great enough, blood spattered and vacant eyed fuckers, wandering about dopily and ready to get their teeth into live meat. They look good, and get shot a lot, what more do ya need from the walking dead. Survivors, well, they’re a decent bunch, you do at least give a shit about them and hope – for the most part – that they don’t end up in some zombies lunchbox.

A great slice of zombie fun that ticks all the boxes and delivers on a highly enjoyable 90 minutes. Buy it, watch it, and enjoy, this is one sweet treat of undead excellence.

The film is a sequel to The Zombie Diaries (2006) and is a good sequel. The film is just as good as the first film and is just as suspenseful. The acting is good and the zombies are scary. The film is worth watching and is a good sequel.


The Zombie Diaries 2 picks up where the first movie left off, with a group of survivors attempting to escape the zombie-infested city. They are led by Michael (played by Michael Rooker), who has become something of a father figure to the group. The group is also being pursued by a band of ruthless mercenaries, led by the ruthless Colonel (played by Doug Bradley). The group is forced to take refuge in an abandoned hospital, where they must fight for their lives against the zombies and the mercenaries.
