15 March 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is basically what I would think normal people would do in the event of a zombie apocalypse. Which is really just stay inside, barricade yourself, and wait for rescue. The movie sorta centers on daily living of four people. It isn't very action centered. Just them waiting and such. So if you're wanting a massive zombie, action, horror, this probably isn't the movie for you. In my opinion the main character I found a bit slow. Mostly because he had long pauses before he would speak. It doesn't really matter but the fact stuck with me. It was even more apparent the longer the movie went. Overall I didn't love this movie but I didn't hate it either. It was just okay. Probably similar to what I would do in their situation. Which is why it wasn't amazing. Do to lack of action. But it was good considering. As long as you didn't come for a ton of action it's a fine film.
