A pretty good effort
13 July 2010 | by kat-786-753239See all my reviews

Having been a big fan of Miles Watts' online Zomblogalypse series for a while now, I was excited to see what this feature would be like.

Loved: cinematography, geeking out moments, goofy one-liners, lighting/noir feel, editing, gorgeous shots of York, characters, music!

Weaknesses: Sure, the actors were no Oscar winners. But I found them believable, if not a little awkward, but hell, I'm a geek and proud of it, and geeks are slightly awkward. They were people I felt I could be friends with. The fight scenes were amusing, but of course there were times where people were NOT hitting each other. Hard to catch unless you're pedantic about it. They were obviously not professional stunt-men. The plot itself was a little light and convoluted at times, and I left the theatre with a few questions.

But overall, I thought it was a great effort, and I'm very impressed with the quality for £7000. I'm looking forward to the next feature.
