I don't find zombie horror scary... in the sense I never lose sleep after watching rabid humans munching down on peoples' gooey floppy bits. I do appreciate the art of a good zombie horror, though, the essentials for a successful one and I do enjoy them when these are met. This movie ticks all the boxes.
It isn't overrun with gore, no, it's not a fast-paced knock-their-blocks-off brain splattering thrill ride from the off.
Zombie horror should be made in England because we have that endless amount of empty rolling countryside that is bound to be hiding some unfavourables behind that hill or that well positioned tree. It's just a matter of when they'll violently flail onto our screen. Plus we have that blunt way of approaching doomsday, reflecting our own dismal repressed lives which we smooth off with an awkward gag.
OK, Shaun of the Dead it isn't, but when it picks up tempo the last half of the film runs beautifully according to the rules of good zombie flicks. You get the important bits - you can connect to the main character, you get the uncomfortable survival moment which tests human nature, you get the tidbits of end of the world humour and one or two gooey floppies. I don't know what else people want from this kind of movie...
