Storyline

Sam and Jenny Mills drop off their daughter at Grandma's house hoping for a quiet evening alone. Instead, Sam's brother Nick shows up shattering their quiet evening. Their time alone goes from bad to worse the next day as an apocalypse of the undead erupts to tear the city apart. Now they must risk their lives fighting through a city overrun by the flesh eating walking dead to find their daughter. When the dead rise, some things are more important that your own survival.

Armageddon sick of zombie films
4 December 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

More low budget zombie films from a vastly overcrowded market, this one kinds of falls in the middle due to not having much in the way of originality, but does kind of entertain in a way, for the most part.

Once again, you've got a zombie uprising and a couple searching for their missing daughter. Things go well for the most part until...sigh...everyone ends up trapped in a building, which is something that's been done since Night of the Living Dead.

At the point we end up in conflict/drama land, except the acting here is a bit dodgy, which adds to the entertainment. It's not a bad film, more of a kind of blah film. Some not bad zombie effects and grim ending, but don't expect anything new here.
