All of this said, strictly speaking the flesh hungry monsters chasing the heroes in this movie are infected with a virus called the rage. They aren't the dead reanimated. They are rotting, fleshy sacks. Their hearts are still beating. There have been several movies like this lately. Quarantine has a similar plot line about "infected" people that are driven to act much like zombies. So my question is, are these films that act almost exactly like zombie movies, zombie movies? Certainly a zombie lover can enjoy these movies, but can we talk about them as zombie movies or do we need to put them into a category of their own? Should we call them infected movies? Flesh crazed sick people movies? What are these films?
