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.

Loved it!
22 July 2014 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this film, I was pleasantly surprised.

If you are after gratuitous gore, and amazing special effects, then maybe it's not for you.

The acting is fairly solid, with a few cringe worthy moments, but over all pretty convincing. It's a horror flick done right, I was heavily invested in the characters, and felt anxious when they were faced with dangers.

This is by far one of the better low budget, apocalyptic films made in recent times, beautifully shot, brooding score, and likable characters.

If you liked films like The Road, or Stake land, I think you will enjoy this.
