Automaton Confusion
24 July 2008 | by BA_HarrisonSee all my reviews

Two things more confusing than the title of this zombie flick (what the hell does Automaton Transfusion mean?): the film's directorial style, a messy mish-mash of rapid editing and shaky cam that makes following the action nigh-on impossible at times; and the muddled plot, which contains many ridiculous moments and no satisfactory ending (yup.... the film stops mid-action, with the words 'To Be Continued' leaving viewers feeling cheated!). A shame really, because the film showed a lot of promise at the start, with a scary opening sequence set in a morgue, and the introduction of a reasonably likable group of characters. The production values also seemed to be fairly good, with some particularly good gore effects that are way better than one might expect from a film made on such a small budget. By the end of the film, director Steven C. Miller has quite obviously lost all control of proceedings, with several sequences making no sense whatsoever. My tips for Mr. Miller when making the sequel to this film (Automaton Transfusion: Contingency, due 2009): calm down the camera-work (buy a tripod, perhaps), hone the script a little more, and get yourself an ending (they always make a film so much better, don'tcha think?).
