Goofs

When the Zombie is shot trying to get upstairs in the warehouse towards the end of the film, it slumps in to a sitting position with its back against the door. In the proceeding shots, it is laying on its front, through the doorway. There is also no sign of a bullet wound on the back of the head. See more »

Don't expect a Zombie flick
8 January 2013 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

If you come into this expecting something like the Walking Dead, or any of the other hundreds of Zombie movies out there, you will be disappointed. This movie is actually more about the characters and the personalities and what they are experiencing and going through emotionally, than it is about Zombies.

Taking it for what it is, this movie is okay. It's not fantastic, but it is okay. If anything, the Zombies almost get in the way of the actual story itself, at least what little of them there are.

The movie is a wee bit confused in that it is trying to cater to multiple audiences by being a dramatic tale with some conservatively added violence, guns and gore. Doesn't quite work, but I don't think it completely fails either.
