South Australian locations featuring in the film include the northern Flinders Ranges where the filmmakers found a landscape that evoked a remote world which supported the film's post-outbreak context. See more »
I am a little surprised by all the accolades, and the excellent reviews this film received, it isn't bad, it's just slow, and it pains me to say it, but just another zombie story, albeit one that is incredibly well made, and superbly acted.
I always look for something unique, and a little different in such a highly regarded film, sadly I couldn't see anything, it's watchable, but I found it too slow.
Martin Freeman is terrific, and the best thing about it. It's a decent watch, but there are many better films in this genre. 6/10
