Goofs

The majority of rural communities have wells, instead of municipal water services. Shutting down the water from the water tower would only have affected those people living inside of the town itself or those close enough to receive municipal water. It would have done nothing to prevent contamination from groundwater sources.

This makes the mayor's comments about not shutting off the water even more incongruous as there are clearly fields surrounding his rural home so he would know the source(s) of water for his home and his area. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Becca Darling: Um, Dr. Dutton, my aunt's in town.
Judy Dutton: Um hmm...
Becca Darling: And she's sick too.
Judy Dutton: Phew, I'm going to need you to stay late tonight. You know, you should probably text your aunt - Scotty - and tell him you can't make it to the baseball game tonight.

Not your usual Zombies
6 June 2013 | by funky_giraffeSee all my reviews

I love this film so much, to me it is completely original! I've seen some other people saying that this film is unoriginal, and i don't agree. I admit the virus epidemic in zombie films is quite repetitive, but i suppose it has to be...how else could we turn into zombies? But anyway, this film has something that's different. The zombies we usually see, are the ones that stumble slowly towards you, and simply want to eat your flesh. These zombies are not like that (if you can even call them zombies) the infected 'Crazies' in this film aren't brain dead, they don't generally look any different (apart from the slight rotting flesh, but lets ignore that), they don't particularly move any differently, and they can speak perfectly fine...which may be the eeriest part. The infected just want to kill. Which makes them, in my opinion, some of the scariest 'zombies' in any film. Great movie that i can watch over and over and still be freaked out!
