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.

A zombie not for a very small audience. Glad I'm a part of that audience.
18 March 2015 | by white_waterSee all my reviews

I want to start by just saying this is not a movie for everybody. Especially for the most fans of the horror genre. So many horror fanatics only watch the movies for the cheap kills and gore and The Battery barely has any of that. Instead it's very slow, not much happens in it and there's barely any zombies. It's two guys walking around. If that doesn't sound interesting to you just go watch some classic zombie film with loads of gore. The Battery is not a traditional zombie flick.

It's a movie that's not even trying to appeal to a wide audience. Most of the viewers will hate it. It's a zombie movie that feels like it's made exactly for me. I'll watch anything Jeremy Gardner does after this.
