I can't help but think that the release of Gallowwalkers was somehow timed to star Wesley Snipes' release from jail after serving time for tax-dodging. Talk about a film that fully rests on the shoulders of Snipes. Production on the movie began in 2006 and had to come to a halt briefly while the troubled actor went to court. It then sat on the shelf in limbo until Lionsgate released it a few months after Snipes regained his freedom.
Does the world really need another zombie movie? Walk into any store that sells DVDs and most people would scream "No!" I've said it before and I'll say it again. There must be three zombie movies coming out every week. The hard thing for viewers to do is try to pick which one they should devote an hour and a half of their time to.
