In Against The Dark, Steven Seagal plays Tao, the leader of a rebel gang of ex-military members fighting to free survivors from a zombie-like infection trapped in a hospital. In the opening scenes of the film it is established that the world is struggling through a pandemic in which the victims turn into vampires/zombies. Tao's team of rescuers discovers that a military base is ready to sterilize the area containing the hospital at any moment, making the rescue effort that much more pressing. As the team of 'hunters' ventures through the hospital, they are attacked by the infected in gruesome, horrifying ways. Also starring Tanoai Reed, Jenna Harrison, Linden Ashby, Emma Catherwood, Skye Bennett, and Keith David, Against The Dark is a brisk 93-minute romp into the zombie horror genre. Directed by Richard Crudo and written by Matthew Klickstein, the film received less than positive reviews, and somehow managed to spell Seagal's name incorrectly in the credits.
