MEDIA REVIEW for Melbourne CLASSICS Epidemic 2.0: written by Jacob Robinson, for Daily Review / Crikey "They’ve turned an ordinary inner city school into the Swedish academy for forensic criminal investigation, an Albert Park boatshed into a Louisiana swamp shindig and the surrounds of the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art into a Middle Eastern market with a Monty Python-esque twist. But this time Underground Cinema (UGC) did something they had never done before. It seems that much like the film industry it so clearly loves, UGC has returned to the pool of the sure-fire sequel. Attending a UGC event feels like being initiated into a secret society, even if you’re not entirely sure what it’s devoted to. Standing outside a near deserted inner city train station with hundreds of other likeminded gore covered attendees, it’s hard not to be swept up in the sensation that you’ve been included in some bizarre parallel world that bemused innocent by-passers can only hypothesise about. One of its most thrilling drawcards is the way in which it transforms innocuous locations into cinematic scenes, dropping you unexpectedly into a completely different world. In the end, UGC – Epidemic 2.0 wasn’t really a sequel at all. It was the bones of the original idea, but cast in a new way which played to the advantages of the resources available. It was a satisfying remake of an old idea in a new different way; more Zack Synder’s Dawn of the Dead than Juan Carlos Fresnadillo’s 28 Weeks Later."
