Trivia

When it came to casting Andy, the directors and producers wanted to take an unconventional approach. First and foremost, the desire was to cast an actor that audiences might not expect to show up in a genre film like this one. Almost equally important was the desire to cast an actor whose personal performance style could help anchor some of the more surreal aspects of the story. Martin Freeman was the most exciting choice on all fronts, being a master of subtlety and understatement with zero interest in playing obvious, clichéd choices. Co-director Yolanda Ramke said: "His dramatic chops are exceptional and he exudes a natural warmth and charm, which we also knew we wanted our protagonist to possess." See more »

A zombie film with heart
25 May 2018 | by brisvegan1971See all my reviews

I read some of the negative reviews of this film before watching it. I almost avoided it for that reason but I'm so glad I didn't. It's a great film, well written and acted, perfectly staged in various locations of the Australian outback to complement the characters and situations they find themselves in. I felt it conveyed realistic human dilemmas and heart, and brought something new to the genre. Forget the naysayers, do yourself a favour and experience this film.
