Storyline

In the film, Ray (Skarsgård), Claire (Riseborough) and their seven-year-old daughter, Zoe, are an average American family in Kingsville, North Carolina - except they have existed in a bomb shelter since escaping a day of devastation that changed everything. For 301 days, they have transformed their cement prison into a home, holding on to memories of the past and hope for a normal life someday. And for 301 days, the family has eluded what looms above the surface - the heavy breathing and booming footsteps that punctuate the night, threatening their fragile existence. All the while, the family has managed to stay hidden. Until now. Now their safe haven has been breached... and something is coming for them. Written by John McLaughlan

Excellent film but not a horror
27 September 2015 | by See all my reviews

I don't normally do reviews but i enjoyed this film that much that i just had to. Firstly i thought it was going to be your average zombie movie (i like zombie flicks)...it isn't.

It is about an infection outbreak that is having an effect on people however it is far from average zombie film.

It is unique and don't think its ever been done before. Excellent plot!!! Well delivered. Really enjoyed it.

So horror it isn't but worth watching it is. With a really good twist.

I cant say more without giving the game away but i really cant recommend it enough.
