There are a lot of negative reviews about Remains and, to be honest, I couldn't see why. I'm not going to say that Remains is a 'must see classic.' It's not. It's effectively another zombie film among a seemingly endless stream of similar undead movies.
If you've seen a zombie film before (and with today's amount, you probably have), you'll expect plenty of biting, plenty of headshots and plenty of boarding up buildings. Remains has all that. And not all that much more. Perhaps that's its problem. It's a decent enough film, but offers absolutely nothing you haven't seen a hundred times before in the genre.
Remains is most similar to the 2004 Dawn of the Dead remake in terms of style and content. A bunch of people barricade themselves in a casino during an undead outbreak. There, they contemplate whether to sit it out, or make a break for it. Remains seems to flit between black comedy and a straight horror film. It never stays in one genre for too long. Perhaps the most amusing thing that Remains brings to the story is that zombies actually fall asleep! I've never seen that one before! If Remains was released ten or twenty years ago, it would probably have been hailed as 'ground-breaking' and a 'classic.' However, it's major fault is that it brings nothing new to the genre. If you desperately feel like sitting through yet another zombie movie then you might want to give this a go. But, remember, it's nothing you haven't seen before.
