Watch this movie only if...no, wait, don't watch this movie...

Hopefully you will be reading this review prior to watching the movie, to prevent yourself from suffering an hour and a half of horrible acting and special effects that will make you wonder, 'When was this movie really made?' The script makes you think the writer/s watched a few horror movies, and took some of the dies and combined them together to make this movie. I just wished they would have taken the good ideas instead of the horrible ones.

The CGI will bring you back to the days of...well, remember the old 50's sci-fi movies? Yeeeeeah, that's this movie. And it doesn't improve at all as it continues either.

Oh, and don't think that the acting will make up for the lack of effects. I think the scripts were left at home and they were told to improv. I haven't seen this much overacting since I rented an adult movie with a plot...and even THEY did better than this!!! Not even the "eye candy" could save this movie. Sorry but it's true.

In short, there are better things you can do with an hour and a half. Example: watch something else.

I'll be kind & say I liked bits of it.

Plaguers is set in the far future where intergalactic space travel is a common occurrence, the USS Pandora is returning to Earth after a year long mission & having found some unidentified glowing green ball of seemingly limitless energy. The crew intend to smuggle the alien energy thing back to Earth & sell it to make loads of cash, however while responding to a distress call from the USS Diana they are infiltrated & taken hostage by a gang of sexy female twenty something space pirates. In a struggle the glowing green alien energy infects Nola (Stephanie Skewes) one of the female pirates who then turns into a puss dribbling zombie mutant thing & in turn begins to infect the rest of the crew. As the USS Pandora heads towards Earth the remaining human survivors realise that the plague must not be allowed to reach it or it could mean the end of the human race as we know it...

Written & directed by Brad Sykes this low budget sci-fi horror film feels like a cross between Aliens (1986) & Demons (1985) & maybe isn't as bad as expected but it ain't no masterpiece & any pleasure or entertainment value gained from viewing Plaguers comes from a few individual moments & a few half decent ideas rather than the film as a whole which is if I am honest pretty bad. The script feels like it's going to be a zombie film set in space (I personally think there should be more zombie films set in space...) but the infected never eat anyone or do anything particularly note worthy except attack any remaining humans, besides some mutant monster make-up there's not much point to them being there as the main threat comes from this green alien football which wants to get to Earth (once it's in the USS Pandora's system & taken control of the ship why doesn't it open the doors to the rooms where the surviving humans are hiding?) which is alright I suppose but a bad green special effect isn't the most scary of villains is it? I did actually like the concept of Plaguers but it's definitely hampered by it's low budget, I loved the idea of a gang of twenty something babes as evil space pirates, I liked the idea of battling zombies on a spaceship & it certainly moves along at a decent pace but it's repetitive, the dialogue is terrible & there's too many scenes which are directly ripped-off from Aliens like the welding the air vents shut, an early sequence showing two men searching the USS Diana & people back aboard the USS Pandora watching on monitors & there's even an android aboard just like Bishop.

I will give the makers credit for such an ambitious project but the budget just wasn't there & most of the sets are cast in shadow & you can barely see them apart from the grate like flooring which are probably just pallets from a factory somewhere. The gore is disappointing with very little on screen blood or violence, there's some bullet wounds, half a head chopped off, someones stomach is ripped open & someone gets a knife through their throat but little else. The special effects are reasonable, the CGI computer effects vary from alright to rubbish while the zombie creatures get more & mutated as the film goes which leads to some decent monster make-up effects. The action & attack scenes are poorly staged with the zombies deliberately slowing down so they don't catch up to the main character's & bad fight scenes in which they just sort of stand there & let people by. Despite having many very good looking ladies here there's absolutely no nudity of any kind. The costumes of the female pirates make them look like they have stepped out of the 60's with short purple dresses & sliver knee high boots, they do look sort of sexy though.

Apparently this won an award for best screenplay at some Spanish festival & best sci-fi/fantasy film at some other festival in Ohio, all I can say is that I shudder to think how bad the competition was if Plaguers won awards for best screenplay & best overall film. The acting is poor, Steve Railsback is the name actor here while space pirate leader Noelle Perris is seriously hot in this.

Plaguers is an OK watch I suppose, it has it's moments, an attractive cast, enough mutant monsters & a fast enough pace to make this slightly better than the usual low budget horror crap out there these days.

Don't watch it, you've been warned

I only watched this movie because I seen this "Won "Best Sci-Fi/Fantasy Feature" at the 2008 Mid-Ohio-Con Film Festival in Columbus, Ohio.". I now know never to watch anything that wins awards at that festival because this movie was atrocious and that's putting it polity.

The special effects were something even a Commodore Amiga from the mid 1980s could better and the acting was appalling.

You will also notice parts of this film have taken idea's from other films like Alien.

The only good thing I can say about this movie is the eye candy but are you that desperate, that's the question?
