(6%) It's films such as this that twist the knife more so than overly generic zombie pictures because this has some ambition, but the absence of any clear ability to implement the ambition into a good watch is so evident. The plot is pretty simple stuff, but it's so poorly told that this pushes tolerance levels and by the time characters start to get dropped off one by one their demise cannot come quickly enough. I'm not one to moan about limited visual effects for as long as the the rest of the film is to a decent standard, which this isn't, so for starters the green screen effects are at times dire, and the CG bees or whatever they are look as though I rendered them, which overall is odd because certain parts of the film look fine. So overall a film with an ounce of talent stretched over a barren gulf of sheer lousyness.
