Before getting to the plot of the movie let’s talk a bit about it first. We know that zombies can be funny creatures.

5. Contracted (2013)
‘Contracted’ has a very unique and different take on the zombie genre. I mean it because if you haven’t come across it in any list featuring zombie movies then while watching it you wouldn’t have had a single thought about it being a zombie movie. I saw this movie on a zombie movies list and watched it. After watching for some thirty minutes I went back on the internet and searched it again to confirm if I was actually watching a zombie movie. I liked the refreshing approach to a genre that has been exploited since time immemorial. One of the things that stood out in the movie is the visual effects and the makeup. they really give this movie the feel that it needed. The movie is about a beautiful girl named Samantha. She has had a rough break-up with her girlfriend Nikki and to cheer up decides to attend a party. There she is drugged and raped. The days that follow are quite strange for Samantha as her body starts changing. She visits a doctor who tells her that she has STD. But turns out it is something much more violent.
