Trivia

Producer Samantha Jennings said of young actress Simone Landers: "Watching Simone open up, has been really...she has never done anything like this, this is her first experience of filmmaking, and just to see her start to open the process, and love it, and be respected by the team, it's been amazing. And she's delivered beautifully. She's got an inner strength and she's got a depth to her, a soulfulness to her but at the same time she is very open and innocent and has a beautiful quality that she is completely authentic with."

It's decent, if unremarkable.
31 March 2019 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

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
