Mohammad Amir Naji,
Billions are dead and the few that are left start to realize they are not alone. Initially when the dead begin to rise, they are not very threatening. However, in a short period of time, the lurching bodies begin to get their most basic senses back and this makes them much more dangerous. When the dead become attracted to light and sound, the survivors have no option but to live in silent darkness. Written by
If you've read any of the David Moody books the "Autumn" series, then you'll most likely appreciate this movie.
The movie is based on David Moody's first book "Autumn" (total of four books to date) and it did a great job of staying true to the main characters and the storyline. Most movies I've seen that were based on books end up being a hack job; the director gives their interpretation and loses the essence of what the book was really about (any fan of Stephen King would agree).
Yes, the acting could have been much better and the editing was quite choppy, but the story itself remained intact. The movie was slow because the first book "Autumn" was slow.
The "Autumn" series is another approach to the zombie culture and the books are much more plot and character driven than they are at delivering blood, gore and the end of the world apocalypse scenarios.
Bottom line, if you've read and enjoyed any of the David Moody books, then this movie is worth the rental. If you haven't read any of his books, then maybe 28 Days Later or any George Romero movie would be more up your alley.
