Good for a low budget flick.
5 January 2012 | by See all my reviews

Maybe I'm being a bit gracious with a rating of 7, but I'll tell you why. Aside from overacting or most probably over directing/writing in the beginning it plays out like a higher budget film. Not to be confused, it looks like a lower budget film. The over acting/directing/writing is from dialog where one character speaks and nods and pauses giving off to much of a reaction rather than a more normal reaction which is of course more natural. Next the problem is the writing is quite good in hiding twists and turns, but just gets a bit off here and there. Didn't care for the lighting in places.

Now for what's good about the film. Once it's rolling the acting is fairly nice. From the get- go it's apparent that something is off about both the lead male and female character. One knows something isn't right, that it's not just bad acting, but that there are wheels turning upstairs on both of them. This is key mild foreshadowing as the film plays out. The zombies are the slow footed classical kind with rather nice makeup, all a bonus if you ask me. The final plot twist is excellent. I'd say this is a directing/producing team that could do good work with studio backing.

If you're expecting Miramax or 20th Century Fox quality you're going to be disappointed. But if you're looking to be entertained with an interesting story about flawed characters and can look past the budget issues this film delivers.
