Trivia

Joey runs into a liquor store called Samsa's in order to help Bart. Gregor Samsa is the name of the main character in Franz Kafka's novella Metamorphosis; he awakes one morning to find that he has transformed into a monstrous creature and is subsequently forced to reassess his life. See more »

Goofs

After Bart comes back from the dead, his body clearly shows the incisions and sutures from an autopsy. With battle deaths and other cases in which the cause of death is obvious and undisputed, autopsies are not necessary nor performed. See more »

Bart: Kill you?

User Reviews

 
This is a film that deserves more credit than it gets
28 December 2012 | by paulholbornSee all my reviews

My son found this film & recommended that I watch, having been a fan of David Anders from Heros as Adam Monroe & being a fan of the Zombie genre I had high hopes.

I wasn't let down, this film was brilliantly entertaining & the ending totally unexpected! Anders & Wylde work brilliantly together & D. Kerry Prior's script is a great new take on the zombie genre which other film makers should take note of. This film is up there with Shaun Of The Dead, The Vagrant & a host of other films, most of which never get the credit they deserve.

A true future classic
