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.

Ignore the bad reviews from Hollywood insiders & their minions
16 August 2014 | by (Luxembourg) – See all my reviews

I don't know why the hate for this movie I thought it was quite good. I suspect spamming by insiders and their minions who don't want creative new blood interfering with their gravy train of big budget Hollywood garbage films. Some elements of The Road and Blair Witch project but with the best post apocalyptic scenes I think I have even seen in a movie. OK, the zombie thing is getting stale as of 2014 but with Ebola going around this movie is also timely. I thought acting was good or at least good enough to put you into the scenes with the actors. Gary Indiana was a great location to film. Soundtrack was really good also. Hopefully we will see more from this group in the future.
