Dead Genesis is a 2010 horror-thriller movie directed by Reese Eveneshen. The film has a runtime of 98 minutes and stars Emily Alatalo, Lionel Boodlal, and Colin Paradine in leading roles. The story is set in a post-apocalyptic world where a virus has wiped out most of the human population. The movie opens with Jane, the protagonist (played by Emily Alatalo), and her partner Ted (played by Lionel Boodlal) who are trying to survive in this harsh environment. They are both part of a group of survivors led by a man named Daryl (played by Charles Ivey).

Things take a turn for the worse when some of the survivors in their group start to show signs of the virus. This puts the entire group at risk, especially when the affected members turn into mindless, flesh-eating monsters.

Later in the movie, Jane and Ted come across a scientist named Dr. Brenner (played by Marie DesJardins) who claims to have found a cure for the virus. The catch is that the cure must be administered within a specific time frame before the disease reaches a critical stage.

The main plot of the movie revolves around Jane and Ted's race to obtain the cure and save their friends before the virus completely takes over their bodies. Along the way, they are faced with several obstacles, including rival groups of survivors, treacherous landscapes, and dangerous monsters infected by the virus.

The movie's special effects and makeup are commendable, especially the makeup used to create the virus-infected monsters. The cinematography is also well-done, with the outdoor shots portraying a bleak and barren post-apocalyptic world.

In terms of acting, Emily Alatalo delivers a solid performance as the strong-willed survivor Jane. She portrays her character's determination and resilience in a convincing manner. The other actors also do a good job in their respective roles.

The film's pacing is consistent, and the tension builds up gradually as the story progresses. There are some genuinely creepy moments in the movie, especially when the virus-infected monsters are on the prowl.

Overall, Dead Genesis is an enjoyable horror-thriller movie that delivers on its premise. It combines elements of science-fiction, horror, and post-apocalyptic survival to create an engaging story that keeps the audience hooked till the end. The film's strong performances, special effects, and cinematography make it a worthwhile watch for fans of the genre.
