It's been 5 years since the outbreak that wiped out 85% of the world's population, but the war between Re-Animates (Re-Ans) and Humans wages on. Most of the major cities are still uninhabitable. Within the few surviving cities, the Re-Ans have been segregated into "zones" and are policed by the R-Division of the QUASI S.W.A.T. Unit who hunt to re-kill the Re-Ans in the hope of quelling a second outbreak. Written by
An enjoyable film even for those who don't particularly care for found footage films.
I normally dislike the found footage genre (although as another reviewer said, I do like starship troopers so would advise those who liked the humour and/or style of Starship Troopers to give this one a chance).
I know other reviews have made a point of mentioning how shaky the camera was, but imo...its less shaky than what you would expect if you were actually being chased by a bunch of re-animated corpses that want to eat you. And (again imo), the shaky cam helps you submerge yourself into the film better - by creating the sense that they were panicked and running for their lives.
While I wouldn't think that this film would appeal to the masses and be winning any Oscars any time soon, I feel it is definitely one of the better zombie films - to the point that I've came here to review it (something I rarely ever do).
