First Greek Splatter/Horror film
24 September 2008 | by (Athens, Greece) – See all my reviews

It's the first Greek attempt to make a splatter film. Just for that it deserves a credit and an overlook for it's low budget. But believe me this doesn't mean that this movie cannot be compared to Hollywood zombie movies because they couldn't afford tanks, mansions and 1000 zombies. This movie is exactly what a zombie movie has to be. The effects are awesome, and not only for the Greek standards. The zombies are so believable, just for an example a taxi driver happened to pass with his car in some of the "zombie's" takes and started running with his car. The directing is a bit strange but stunning, your eyes are stuck in the screen not to miss anything. The actors are amateurs but play their roles very well and were a bit creepy in some of the scenes when they began to act crazy! I give an 10 for a Greek movie and an 8 for a film not to be judged by it's country. You must see it, it's somehow different for any zombie you have seen so far and it won't disappoint you! I'm really looking forward for "To Kako 2".

p.s. The ending is just NOT a Hollywood one, but i don't want to spoil it, i loved it though!
