Meh...I've Seen Worse
20 February 2012 | by (Valhalla) – See all my reviews

Okay This Short Is A lot Better Than What You Would Assume From The Plot And Its Rating (5.9 Is Too Low). This Is A Very Atmospheric Horror Short, At Times I Admit It Did Creep Me Out (The Lighting Became Dark With The Exception Of A Flashlight And Zombies Kept Appearing And Disappearing.) I Agree With The Other Review When It Says That They Should've Shown How They Became Zombies Instead Of What Happened However That Can Be The "Unanswered Mystery" Of The Horror Film. The Music Score Reminded Me Of The Halloween Score (Yes This Is The 1978 One, This Was Because Of The Use Of Piano And The Fact That It Played In Such A Way To Build Atmosphere Is Perfect For This Movie.) Overall I Recommend A Viewing.
