The Quick and the Undead is a 2006 Western zombie horror film written, directed, and produced by Gerald Nott.[1]

Plot[edit]

In the present, a plague breaks out causing the infected to become zombies. The action starts 80 years later, where the western United States has devolved into a series of ghost towns overrun by zombies. The government awards bounty hunters bounties in exchange for pinkies of the undead.

Ryn Baskin (Clint Glenn) is a bounty hunter. After a successful hunt, he is robbed and left for dead by a rival gang of hunters, led by Blythe Remington (Parrish Randall), who plans to spread the plague, creating a larger bounty market. Ryn survives and follows Remington with the aid of Hans Tubman (Nicola Giacobbe), a foreigner who had double crossed Ryn. This leads him to a final confrontation not just with Blythe, but with a huge zombie army.

Cast[edit]

Reception[edit]

Moria gave the movie two and a half stars, finding it to be a successful, fast paced blend of the zombie and Spaghetti Western genres. It praised the homages to both Sergio Leone and George Romero.[2]
