A journey to an abandoned city turns into a survival attempt
It was one of the horror movies with a negative ending, horror scenes were not so qualified nor had a good visibility, but horror scenes especially wild dogs were effective enough to be expected in a horror movie.
Illogical behaviors both at the beginning and inside of this adventure causes every participant's death and turns that journey into several attempts to escape from fatal zone, an escape from a danger caused by wild creatures or wild people and an escape from a deadly extremely dangerous radioactive zone. It made no sense all that wrong preferences of characters, anyone would go away to bring aid, but they preferred searching another characters and they could only find their dead bodies and suffered from another dangers, incidents, and eventually the last two characters were killed by officials.
It would be extremely frustrating and terrifying to know that it would be impossible to get away from that hell, and survive. Negative ending made this movie more effective and maybe more unforgettable. I think, it was a bit better horror movie than an average movie in that type and it should have been evaluated with 6 0r 7 points out of 10, I personally gave 7 points, and I think it deserves that.
