Don't expect Zombies...well....

Supposedly based on true facts, a gang of suburban kids is sport-killing home-less people just for fun in the streets of Chicago.

One day, they decide to try a new excitement, by murdering a young Mexican working girl, assuming there would be no consequences since she was illegal.

They were wrong.

I streamed this on ADC through my Roku and it was in the horror category, but this movie is a hybrid. Yes, by the title you might assume there are going to be zombies and such. Not really, but sort of, or maybe not.

This movie is way more like a crime thriller with a sadistic streak until the final third where it goes Japanese horror.

If it's true this movie was made for $100K, these guys did an amazing job. Great realistic acting, realistic story, realistic directing and a pretty top notch script for the most part.

The film is also very unique in that it moves back and forth from English to Spanish with subtitles, creating an even more realistic setting.

Overall, it's a gritty and compelling movie and you may not love the weird turn it takes but it worked for me.

This is an interesting director and I'd like to see more of his work.

For the record, I had nothing to do with this picture. I just really like it. If IMDb had an 8.5, that's what I'd give it, but I'm stuck with a 8.
