Swedes making ground?
19 February 2009 | by corpus_christineSee all my reviews

I've never heard of a Swedish zombie movie before, so I had to give it a try. Granted; it's low-budget (and zombie flicks should be) and it shows. But it's made based on pure will/with heart/love of the genre, and I give them credit for that. Sure, the director doesen't always seem to know what he's doing, but you can't blame him for trying. The actors are doing the best they can with what they got, but the only one really jumping out is Nick Holmquist, and I'd like to see more of him. The story is interesting, to say the least. The movie is also funny with the story, dialogue and the 80's-feel the everything. let's not forget the soundtrack, which is great almost all the way. I think the Swedes suck in horror and are marvellous in drama, but I think it's time to reconsider my opinions. Keep it up, lads!
