Storyline

Two former baseball players, Ben (Jeremy Gardner) and Mickey (Adam Cronheim), cut an aimless path across a desolate New England. They stick to the back roads and forests to steer clear of the shambling corpses that patrol the once bustling cities and towns. In order to survive, they must overcome the stark differences in each other's personalities. Ben embraces an increasingly feral, lawless, and nomadic lifestyle while Mickey is unable to accept the harsh realities of the new world and longs for the creature comforts he once took for granted. A bed, a girl, and a safe place to live. When the men intercept a radio transmission from a seemingly thriving, protected community, Mickey will stop at nothing to find it, even though it is made perfectly clear that he is not welcome.

Both Superb Entertainment and a Cautionary Tale..
11 July 2013 | by See all my reviews

Gardner is brilliant. Never met the man, not related, but the comment stands. Brilliant. It is easy to get distracted by the fact that this movie was produced for the approximate cost of a weekend catering budget for a typical Hollywood film. So we won't go there. Where we will go is to the notion that Gardner took THE EXTREMELY OVERDONE ZOMBIE FORMULA (overdone because the current culture Gestalt is a sense of impotence as the Masters of Our World, the 1%ers, work their will on us lesser mortals) and turned it inside out. Is it a zombie movie? Is it a buddy movie? Is it a Road Movie? Is just a darn good movie? Garner not only wrote, directed and produced but in fact his performance is the best in the film. He is a natural actor. He also has a flair for music videos, as attested to by the ANTHEM FOR THE ALREADY DEFEATED bit, just a few minutes, but it haunts you for days. The camera work in the last scene will be discussed in film classes for years. This is both entertainment and also a cautionary tale for the over-bloated Hollywood where, as always, films are made based on who you know, and who owes you what. See it. Seriously. See it.
