Storyline

Nine years after an infection turns most of the humanity into rabid creatures, Patrick, Jack and Lu, a nine-year-old girl, survive in seeming peace and calm in the forgotten snow-covered town of Harmony. We nonetheless sense that something terrible happened between Patrick and Jack because a deep hate keeps them apart. When the infected appear again, Patrick and Jack will have to leave behind all rancor to protect the one being who means more to them than anything else.

You can't give a dog chocolate. Especially that much chocolate over it appears a long period of time. Chocolate is highly toxic to dogs. The dog would be dead long before it was even bit and killed.. See more »

Lu: What about geography? Did you know about geography? Let's see. In what country is the Great Wall of China?
Patrick: [acting] Oh, gosh. Uh, Mexico.
Lu: Nope. China. And do you know what language they speak there?
Patrick: [pretending to think] Uh... Chinese.
Lu: Very good. And do you know what the population is?
Patrick: Right now?
[Jack snorts, Patrick chuckles in response and the two begin to laugh]

A return to the core of the genre
2 August 2015 | by sideriteSee all my reviews

At first I thought "Oh no, not another zombie movie!", but from the very first minutes I got hooked. The beginning scene of the film is great and reveals the overall theme of the movie: it is not about why or the how, it's all about the who.

Extinction is rather badly chosen a title, because the scope of the film is not global, but very localized, very human and personal. It feels more like a play, with a total of four roles that are worth mentioning. It is not about a problem that someone solves, but goes back to the core of the zombie genre, the pure survival of the group of individuals in a hostile world. The creatures themselves are very secondary with the focus on the people, with complex and well written characters.

Bottom line: this film deserves a lot more recognition than the IMDb rating seems to indicate. It is not a masterpiece, but certainly a work of art, not another recycled "run, shoot, run" clone. It lasts for two hours and it is a slow paced character driven story. So glad to see well written stories from time to time.
