Rat zombies on the cheap

This film was retitled ZOMBIE VIRUS ON MULBERRY STREET for its UK DVD release in a bid to draw in fans of the gut-munching undead. Nothing changes the fact that this is a Z-grade horror flick, shot on a shoestring budget with a mainly amateur cast, and one that suffers from shabby writing and an almost entire lack of characterisation.

The focus of the film is on a bunch of characters holed up in a run-down apartment building in New York. The characters are differentiated by sight rather than by personality - there's the army girl, the Freddie Mercury lookalike, etc. - and never for a second do you care about what happens to them, which is never good in a film. The only performance I really liked was Kim Blair's, as she successfully manages a mix of toughness and vulnerability in her part.

When the zombie outbreak hits, there's a twist - the victims transform into mutant rat creatures rather than the undead, but it's all cheap and shoddy so there's not much interest there. The second half of the film is an interminable mix of running around via shaky cam, hiding in dark rooms, and random zombie attacks. Some have compared this to Danny Boyle's 28 DAYS LATER, but it's nothing like it; the Boyle film was never a chore to sit through.

Effective Low-Budget Horror Movie

In Manhattan, in a dilapidated building on Mulberry Street, the super Ross (Tim House) has trouble to repair the decayed systems to improve the lives of the tenants. The former boxer Clutch (Nick Damici) is a leader in the building and is anxiously waiting for the return of his beloved daughter Casey (Kim Blair) from a hospital for veterans after serving overseas. He prepares a surprising homecoming party for Casey with his gay neighbor Coco (Ron Brice). Clutch feels an attraction for her neighbor, the single mother and waitress Kay (Bo Corre), and her teenager son Otto (Javier Picayo) respects him like a father. Clutch is also close to Frank (Larry Medish), who is very sick, and his friend Charlie (Larry Fleischman). Meanwhile there is a rat attack in a subway station, followed by two others in different stations, and forcing the Major to showdown the public transport system. Sooner the victims bitten by rats turn into flesh eater mutants, attacking the other human beings and there is an outbreak that puts Manhattan in quarantine. The inhabitants have to fight to survive the attack of the ratlike creatures and Clutch gives his best effort trying to protect Casey and his friends.

"Mulberry Street" is an effective low-budget horror movie that really works. The characters are human, realistic and very well developed, creating an empathy with the viewer; the plot is simple but explains the origin of the outbreak; and the attack of the horde of mutants is gruesome and claustrophobic, recalling 1968 "Night of the Living Dead" and "REC". There is no final redemption in the non-commercial end, and for me it is another plus in this good film. My vote is seven.

Low Budget good

Horror movies can be done with little money. Nowadays of course many things can be done rather cheaply (no pun intended), but generally speaking the horror genre was the one flooded with a lot of entries, because you could do them easily. Having said that, there are differences, a lot of them in the movies that were made and are still being made.

In this case, you clearly see that however low budget this is, it has value. Being dystopian and dark and bleak, may derive it from some peoples attention, but those interested in a virus outbreak movie that does not involve just watching someone closed off at home (though Alive showed us that can be done in a very fine fashion too), have something to cheer for here. B-movie characters and a cinemaography that does not look cheap at all, this movie checks all the right boxes ... for better or worse ...
