Storyline

When a zombie outbreak claims the life of his older brother, Gabriel Cooper, played by Chris Bellant, is forced to make his way to his school in search of his girlfriend. Upon arrival, he finds the school infested but is rescued by a small group of students who have barricaded themselves in the library. Gabriel has a hard time getting the group to take this event seriously until a familiar face and a split second decision make them all realize how dire their situation really is. As food supplies dwindle, old rivalries resurface, and one of their own begins lash out, the kids come to understand that escape may be their only means of survival and that confronting them demons within themselves may be their only way of doing so.

Breakfast Club but with (some) zombies
11 October 2018 | by mikestanselSee all my reviews

If you're looking for a classic zombie flick - rife with flying bullets and red-tinted corn syrup - then look elsewhere. This is less of a horror movie and more of a teen drama, and in my mind that's a good thing.

The characters are interesting and well-rounded, and their dialogue is funny and feels natural. Unlike many zombie films, where there's some undeveloped redshirt character(s) you know is/are gonna end up being zombie chow, I was genuinely loathing the loss of any one of the cast once the zombie shenanigans started in earnest.

I'm sure there's people who will deride this movie's lack of special effects, gore, or hordes of the shambling undead, but honestly there's literally hundreds of zombie flicks that fit this bill. Fairfield was relieving in not necessarily following the zombie movie formula, and while some of the characters do make your classic don't-open-that-door horror movie mistakes, their motivations and decisions overall make sense and serve the development of the story, rather than being used as a segue to the next jump scare or high-budget fight scene.
