Good Concept, Interesting Twist..
25 August 2005 | by arielsphotoSee all my reviews

This film is defiantly unique for its genre. The characters range from mediocre to bizarre performances. The film is bit plot heavy and dialog saturated, however it does contain some ingenious plot twists and shock factors. The special effects were great for an indie and the gritty location added a lot of suspense to the film. It is defiantly not your typical "Zombie eats brains" scenario followed by a cast of big breasted bimbos and college frat guys. This film takes it a step further adding almost humorous elements and science fiction. This film has some great concepts (which I find to be a rarity these days), but elementary work. I do however see lots of potential and I will defiantly be following these two writers/directors.
