Corpses Are Forever is a 2003 American psychological horror-spy thriller film written and directed by Jose Prendes. It stars Jose Prendes as an amnesiac spy who must recover his memories and learn the origin of a zombie apocalypse before the end of the world.

Plot[edit]

During a zombie apocalypse, Malcolm Grant, a CIA agent, allows himself to be experimented on by a government lab run by General Morton. Morton believes the only way to stop the apocalypse is by wiping Grant's memories and injecting Grant with the experiences of Quint Barrow, the index case of the zombie plague. Through Grant's flashbacks as Barrow, they learn that the apocalypse was begun through a deal with Satan. Grant teams up with a priest, his ex-wife, and a nurse to stop doomsday.

Reception[edit]

Bill Beyrer of Cinema Blend rated it 3.5/5 stars and wrote that he initially intended to write a sarcastic negative review, but the film turned out to be better than expected.[5] Mike Watt of Film Threat rated it 3/5 stars and wrote, "It's a gutsy movie; it just doesn't work."[6] In The Zombie Movie Encyclopedia, Volume 2, Peter Dendle wrote that the film is "unburdened by any sort of budget or clarity of vision".[7]
