Good Low Budget Zombie Horror
19 October 2020 | by boris_unanimateSee all my reviews

Don't trust the negative reviews. This is a well written, nicely shot and well directed indie horror movie. It has an engaging story ("It's about family, and that's what's important."), it doesn't waste time on unnecessary events or dialogue. The fat has been trimmed and it's a slick zombie flick.

The only reason it's not as famous as Pedo-Wood's big budget flicks is that the entire budget was used to make it look good and not on advertising. It's also a lot smarter than most US horror flicks. And if you watch this in 2020, you will laugh at all the coincidences and the pure irony because it's almost prophetic.
