Seven months have passed since the dead took over. Many cities and states have been abandoned and left to die. Several self sufficient hunting groups have been established to take on the threat in a war aptly referred to as the 'War on Dead'. Jillian Hurst, a former news writer and amateur documentarian, has set out to make a pro-war propaganda film to support the W.O.D. She joins up with a pack of renegade hunters known infamously to North America as 'the deadheads'. The moral dynamics and hardships of fighting in a war against the undead are told from several different perspectives. Written by Anonymous

Much more than a zombie film
3 August 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I know how cliché this is going to sound, but for such a low budget, this film has a powerful message. Zombies. US Civil War. Any Civil War. This film could be a story about any conflict where one side is fighting people who used to be on their side.

The blood, violence, depravity, and gore of this film should satisfy the viewers who just want a straight horror flick.

But the real impact of this film comes from a very basic but profound question-is it excusable in times of war to kill those you used to love simply because they are on the opposite side? And further, what is the emotional and psychological impact on the people at the front lines who have to face that question and rationalize their actions every day? And can anyone who doesn't live it every day ever truly understand or reasonably criticize those who do?

I know how silly this sounds for a zombie movie because, believe me, I've seen and enjoyed A LOT of them. But the truth is that the reason this film could be produced so cheaply and still be so effective is because it doesn't take many special effects or camera tricks to capture may not be zombies, but these same external and internal battles are happening everyday across the globe and have throughout history.

But just to be clear- this film doesn't make you think too much. You can still enjoy it as a blood and guts horror flick because the bigger message is so obvious that it doesn't really require any deep thought.

I hope you give this film a try.

PS. I disagree with the filming creating motion sickness. The first time i saw The Blair Witch Project it made me sick. This is much easier to watch, especially since most of the film ends up not being on a hand-held cam.
