Really well done indie horror
25 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this at the British Film Fest LA, and despite the fact it was obviously low budget (or no budget), I have to admit I enjoyed the hell out of it. The music is phenomenal, the effects are top notch, and I thought the story was pretty original for a post-apocalyptic scenario. I liked the performances too. I've seen better, but these are light years beyond other drivel like in 13 Seconds, Automaton Transfusion, Open Water, etc. It's not perfect, but I think horror fans will definitely get a kick out of it if you ever get the chance to see it. I guess they're actually doing some more editing on it and some reshoots so I'm really curious to see the final product.
