28 splinters
26 May 2010 | by trashgangSee all my reviews

The man from the Saw legacy. What can I say. It's bloody but the only thing that bothers me is the shaky camera and the use of slomo while people are attacked. Again, the story is very simple and as said in my summary, it is a combination of 28 Days Later and Splinter. Due to a chemical fire people are changing into flesh eating kind of zombies. That part made me think of 28 Days Later. But their bodies transform into weird shapes and that part reminded me, as did their noises, of the movie Splinter. What everybody is saying that all episodes were written in a fast way. the ending is mostly huh, what the f***. This episode works for some parts but again, it isn't Masters of Horror, sad but true.
