Damn! That was a close call. -Or was it? Mmmm...
11 April 2015 | by BoloxxxiSee all my reviews

Synopsis: Foreigner working in India and in a relationship with an Indian woman encounters the living dead.

This movie was never going to get a 10 because the performances were "somewhat" off -but not enough to stop it from getting as high as 8 or even 9 if all else went well (After all, we came for some scary thrills not to hand out Oscars).

Unfortunately all else did not go well.

I think a little more time should have been spent to SHOW as well as EXPLAIN how the zombie virus got to India. This would have made a nice "lead up" and "build up" to the outbreak there (A guy walking in a sickly daze at the very beginning of the movie). The only explanation offered is thru an anecdote told by someone who notices the strange walker. Something about being "bitten by a woman from Somalia". As well, we didn't even get a decent introduction to the main characters so we could know and care about them. Traditionally, in most horror movies, there's a "honeymoon" period before the sh!t hits the fan. Classic are ghost stories which usually start out with a nice introduction to a family who more often than not are moving into a new home. Still, poor movie etiquette, coupled with the somewhat off acting, was not enough to stop this move from getting as high as 6 or 7 if all else went well.

All else did not go well.

What really disappointed me was how badly the "close call" or "narrow escape" scenes were done. They had no credibility at all because you -the viewer- could see how the zombies could have -and would have- bitten the person in their clutches. For example: In these narrow escape scenes the zombie is just about to have dinner when abruptly, the camera cuts away to show an unrelated angle or another scene entirely before returning to the beleaguered victim (A victim we know who should -and would have- been bitten already). A camera cutting away from an imminent event (say, a zombie bite) doesn't stop the event. Only the "recording" of it. If -for instance- someone hurls a brick at your head and it's being filmed, whoever is filming the event can't save you by "cutting away" before impact. All cutting away means is that your head saying hello to the brick will not be recorded and any audience viewing the footage later will therefore not get to see the "obvious conclusion". Thus, cutaways in the editing room cannot substitute for -or represent- a genuine narrow escape or close call.

We, the viewing audience, want "legitimate" close-calls and narrow-escapes. This means that not only do we want to see someone in a tight spot in a movie (because it's exciting and suspenseful), we also want any close-calls or narrow-escapes to be credible. We need to see and believe it was possible. This is what makes it thrilling. When -despite odds against it- the person manages somehow to slip out of a very difficult situation. A "near-disaster" is only as valid as the "escape" part of it since if there is no credible escape, the disaster is not averted. And therefore cannot be called a "near" disaster or "close call" to imply escape.

On the plus side: WHAT THIS MOVIE WAS GOOD AT was the suspense of not knowing WHEN and HOW a zombie would suddenly pop up. Now if only the narrow escape scenes were also done this well. This movie could have gotten a solid 6 or 7 from me. Many times you're able to forgive certain flaws in a movie because they don't take much away from your overall enjoyment. But I tell you Reader, it was hard for me to watch the movie carry on with someone that I know for a fact should now be dead -or "undead"- from an earlier encounter. That's my 2 cents (Okay, it was more than 2 cents, sorry). Love, Boloxxxi.
