Goofs

Everyone seems to be able to make and receive calls with ease. In reality, a national emergency with chaos on that level would surely cause the national cellphone network to overload, and that's ignoring the many cellphone masts that would be abandoned by technicians or overrun by zombie attacks.

Excellent
8 November 2020 | by robert-coensteinSee all my reviews

I love zombie films, so it was a no brainer to watch this. And I found out that I really enjoy this film from beginning to end. The hottie teenager brings this new light to zombie films that's entertaining to watch. The acting was great and the chemistry was there. I laughed at the door shutting on the zombies multiple times. The story was clever and made me excited for each scene but also whenever the coquette cheerleader lit the scene. Overall this movie is great.
