What's with the hate??
11 November 2018 | by edensmarandaSee all my reviews

This movie by any means isn't the BEST but it's also not terrible. Okay so the plot isn't awesome but it is to say the least entertaining. Basic zombie movie. They should turn it into a show. I'd watch it over The walking Dead any day!
