13 April 2007 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

it's not a "hard zombie" film, but yet it manages to have a few "clever" scenes while mixing along some humour (not always necessary, one must admit it), which makes this film enjoyable and pleasant to watch.

the acting is fairly decent and well accomplished and the storyline, though not brilliant and all that elaborated. it still manages to keep the film from being yet another pretentious zombie production, producing good moments of solid action with a couple of more "heavy/scary" scenes, though i wouldn't quite call it a horror film.

a good option to consider ;)
