A Total Gem. Give these people money to make more films.
This film is very well titled. It positions itself using well crafted elements from NotLD, but the real homage is to our modern zombie zeitgeist.
The plot is fresh and well developed. The film is never boring, as it never gets 'stuck' in the homage to NotLD. It becomes its own movie, and does so quite smoothly. By the mid-way point of the film, you are no longer waiting for NotLD to just 'play itself out' on screen.
The characters are wonderful. The protagonists superficially reflect those from the original film, yet we know these people more from our current experiences with the zombie craze in popular culture.
Overall, the production quality of this film is very good. There are a few questionable shots - with speedy cinematography or editing that really didn't fit the scene - but the other 99.9% of the visuals are clear and effective. The $500K production budget was put to good use.
I gotta say - I really loved this film. Somebody give these folks some money to make more films, because they did a great job.
