I love zombie films, as most readers already know.
I was able to see this film over the Christmas Break while in the UK. This is the first feature film by a small film group from north Wales. The Film was made on an extremely low budget. This is a fact they cover very well.
The story is set in the future after a virus has caused the surviving human race to live underground. The Survivors desperate to find a way back to the surface send teams up to try and find an antidote to the virus. This is where the fun begins.
The films are extremely well made and I think the Directing is superb. The story is not a straight out Zombie movie but throws a few elements in bring this film away from traditional zombie movies.
For such a low budget the zombie makeup is quite realistic and the special effects are extremely well done. I was quite surprised at how realistic some of the effects were.
This is defiantly one of the best Zombie movies of 2005. Though it was over shadows by some big releases in this genre. I was glad to see a low budget movie that was able to give the likes of "Shaun of the dead" and "Land of the dead" a run for there money.
I for one will pick this up on DVD if it is ever released in the US.
