Grave Bandits Hits the Spot
6 March 2013 | by evelind7See all my reviews

This film has a combination of different elements that make it work-from the locations, to the two actors who play the leads Romy and Peewee, to the music that just fits perfectly to each scene.

It is interesting to see the movie, because it was shot in the Philippines, thus the audience gets to see a film about the "Undead" or zombies from a different perspective other than the ones we are accustomed to. The film never stops or gets dull-it is constantly moving at a good pace-not too fast, not too slow.

I recommend Grave Bandits for anyone who loves horror films, although it is important to note that this film isn't purely horror. Grave Bandits has nice comedic touches and excellent action sequences added throughout to balance the movie.
