Why so many haters
25 April 2007 | by my-boomstickSee all my reviews

I will never understand the haters of the zombie genre. Just like romantic comedy these gems are not made for everyone.

The few people who appreciate a good zombie movie will see the originality and joy in this movie. Granted it is not scary..AT ALL and it isn't nearly gory enough, but still this movie deserves its due. It took a concept that has been done to death, people locked in a confined area fighting back a zombie invasion...(Night of the Living Dead being the blueprint) and gave it a twist that I really appreciated.

Being trapped in a confined space with the Zombies, leaving you with zero room to hide and none of that long drawn out psychological mind-screw most films rely on to kill time.

I loved this movie, and if you love zombie flicks, I'm sure you will too.
