Storyline

Chrysalis is a post-apocalyptic horror film, set 25 years after a biological terrorist attack unleashes a virus upon the world, transforming much of humanity into vicious creatures and laying waste to civilization. The remnants and survivors have staggered about for years, as the "infected" slowly starve and die off. Our story follows Joshua (Cole Simon) and Penelope (Sara Gorsky), two such survivors who have banded together in the hope of rescuing others and hopefully rebuilding civilization. When they encounter Abira, the lone survivor of another group, their worlds and goals are irrevocably altered, and they must face new and terrifying challenges if they are to survive.

Trivia

The idea for the script came when screenwriter Ben Kurstin was driving through Harvey, a town on the south side of Chicago, and passed by the old Dixie Square Mall where the car chase mall scene was filmed for the movie "The Blues Brothers." It was closed in November of 1978 and has been slowly falling apart ever since. Seeing it as a great location for a post apocalyptic movie, he began writing Chrysalis...but well before production started, the mall was torn down. See more »

26 July 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I really wanted this movie to redeem itself but it became increasingly worst as it went on. Here are the weak points. The plot is poor and predictable, the acting is substandard and the score is just god awful. It is probably the only one zombie movie where I found myself cheering for the zombies. I kept asking myself "how the hell did you lot survive this long?" Eventually, I realised that I was the biggest loser in all this as I had lost 100 minutes of my life that I could never regain. It may have been a very good 6th form project, but it really should never hit the big screen. My tip is to only watch this movie when you are high, at least then you can blame it on the weed.
