Storyline

Truth is a virtue one cannot cover up. Set behind the idyllic neighborhoods of Orange County, Ethan spends his days drawing comic books and dreaming of a happy life with his childhood love Kahlah. However, wedged fatally between them lies Kahlah's boyfriend Shane and his gang of corrupt goons. Threatened by Ethan, Shane's insidious plot to exact revenge comes at the cost of Kahlah and her innocence. Fortunately for Ethan, his archaeologist neighbor Angelica opens his eyes to a world beyond his wildest imagination. Immersed among archaeological materials, Ethan makes a discovery that leads him beyond the realm of living and into a forgotten past. Now he must walk a fine line to prevent all hell from breaking loose. To find out if Kahlah can bring her culprit to justice, if relationships beyond the grave can survive, and what will become of an exposed community, you must go Beneath the Surface. If you want to find the truth, all you have to do is dig. Written by Anonymous

Very impressive for an amateur film.
30 September 2008 | by (the Nth Dimension) – See all my reviews

Despite this film's obviously low budget and amateur cast, it really was surprisingly good. The editing was quality if not edgy. The story came off as interesting and believable (for a zombie-revenge film) and lacked a lot of the stupid twists and successive inconsistencies of similar films.

The music was pop-rock/metal, obviously youth oriented- not exactly my cup of tea but it wasn't offensive, and given the cast of mostly adolescents it didn't feel out of place.

Although they won't be winning any Oscars for this, I never felt annoyed or contemptful of the acting- it was actually really good for the level of production attempted here and all the roles felt pretty comfortable to me.

Plot wasn't exactly complex, but also it wasn't over-reaching which is important for a production like this. Better to accomplish what you can do than fail at something you aren't really capable of.

So I give this film 6/10, because even though this exceeded my expectations, cmon, this is an amateur flick. Sure, it wasn't bad, even pretty good considering, but also nothing groundbreaking here.

A solid enjoyable film in the teen zombie genre, minus a lot of the cheese you typically find, despite the fact that it looks like a college-level film. Give it a try if you're the type that likes to watch up and coming filmmakers, because these guys impressed me.
