Great make-up ruined by, honestly, everything else.
23 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'll be completely honest, I went into this film expecting it to be a pretty bad. I was not disappointed. I only picked it up because the monster make up looked pretty interesting for a low budget zombie flick. The make up was great when it was on screen, but the shots were so brief in most cases it was hard to really appreciate what was there before it was gone. It's a shame such good make up was squandered by not putting it on screen enough to really sell the rotted and disfigured looks they achieved.

The score was pretty decent as well, with the exception of a few cues that turned quick shocker moments into more comical cheesy cuts. Unfortunately the praise ends there pretty abruptly. The film is essentially a guy and a girl wandering the forest. Sound boring? It is. Painfully so. Then some zombies show up and you're treated to hectic choppy quick cutting action that is jarring to watch and the leads sword swings are so slow it's hard to believe he'd do any real damage to anything.

To top that off the acting was abysmal. Much of the film sounded like they were reciting the dialogue from memory instead of putting any thought or feeling into it. Doesn't help that the dialogue itself was awkward and clunky either. No amount of talented acting would have delivered the lines without them sounding cliché and ponderous.

For all it's flaws it is an interesting twist on the zombie apocalypse genre with some decent camera work and some beautifully disgusting monster make-up. If you're into cheesy horror flicks, and I know there are plenty of you types out there, it's an interesting watch. If you go in with low expectations you should come out okay.
