What on earth did the star studded cast smoke the day they agreed to making this movie?
16 August 2018 | by jonnyhartwellSee all my reviews

As a huge zombie/apocalypse/horror fan I can say I dont think I have seen worse as far as the genre goes. I did brave it even though at the time of writing the rating was 4.4 (generous in my opinion) due to the calibre of some of the actors in the film. The plot is same old, acting is bad, no twist or surprises, no character chemistry & not for once felt at the edge of my seat or engrossed in the film. I actually came to the realisation how important music is in a film - the music in this make it have the feel of a D class horror. Some advice to Clive Standen & Matt Smith - NEVER take a role again that requires you to do an american accent as it was horrific to listen too them. I will never think of Stanely Tucci again in the same light after taking such a silly role in a terrible movie.
