Storyline

Chrysalis is a post-apocalyptic horror film, set 25 years after a biological terrorist attack unleashes a virus upon the world, transforming much of humanity into vicious creatures and laying waste to civilization. The remnants and survivors have staggered about for years, as the "infected" slowly starve and die off. Our story follows Joshua (Cole Simon) and Penelope (Sara Gorsky), two such survivors who have banded together in the hope of rescuing others and hopefully rebuilding civilization. When they encounter Abira, the lone survivor of another group, their worlds and goals are irrevocably altered, and they must face new and terrifying challenges if they are to survive.

Trivia

The script began as a POV documentary-style film like "Cloverfield" or "The Blair Witch Project," but was scrapped due to logistical issues with how the characters would power a camera 25 years after the apocalypse. Some residual elements of this issue still exist in an early scene where Josh recharges batteries with a hand-powered crank. See more »

Don't bother looking at this.

I really wanted this movie to redeem itself but it became increasingly worst as it went on. Here are the weak points. The plot is poor and predictable, the acting is substandard and the score is just god awful. It is probably the only one zombie movie where I found myself cheering for the zombies. I kept asking myself "how the hell did you lot survive this long?" Eventually, I realised that I was the biggest loser in all this as I had lost 100 minutes of my life that I could never regain. It may have been a very good 6th form project, but it really should never hit the big screen. My tip is to only watch this movie when you are high, at least then you can blame it on the weed.
