Marguerite (Abigail Breslin) is one of the many suffering from the necroambulist virus that has been spreading like wildfire across the states. After two weeks of searching for her, [...]

We’ve all seen zombie flicks from all sides of the spectrum! It’s all been done before, so where can filmmakers take the sub-genre that hasn’t been seen? It’s extremely hard to say and unfortunately Andrew Gilbert’s Infected just doesn’t do anything to further the zombie craze.
