Storyline

Something terrible is definitely happening in the a peaceful suburban community as, day by day, former caring parents mysteriously turn into ravenous carriers of an unfathomable pandemic that targets their offspring. Suddenly, like every son and daughter in the entire nation, teenage Carly and Josh Ryan must run for their lives, as the rage-filled murderous intent is as unstoppable as it is inexplicable. Before long, the Ryans' usual simmering familial tensions take on a completely different meaning. Kids, stop hiding. Mom and Dad love you so much. Written by Nick Riganas

Not the perfect movie you're looking for,, but it's really nice, thrilling and somehow funny :D
21 January 2018 | by Aktham_TashtushSee all my reviews

So when i saw the trailer, and Nicolas Cage in there i kinda had a bit of hesitation , because lately he had some really weird mediocre roles ,, but i think this is different ,, the idea of the movie is fresh and genuine and it build up to an easily followable plot.

The script is not as strong as ever , but it was as i said tight and organised and somewhat quick which leveled up the thrill ,, and not forgetting the sense of humor and the "kids we love you but sometimes we wanna kill you" it just gave the whole movie a new perspective.

The casting was good, Nicolas Cage was so engaging and tense, same for Selma Blair and the kids.

Final thought,, even though it's not the high-budget movie you're looking for, the movie was really nice, so it is definitely recommended.
