The Positives
1 August 2018 | by kuk-48505See all my reviews

Zombies and more zombies. So many. They did not cheap out.

A few original ideas and moves, which were probably mandatory because they only had the width of a train to play with for most of this film.

A beautiful girl. What can I say? I am a sucker for long-haired women in short skirts. She was not just a she. She was a babe.

A morality story about what ethics mean.

Well played.
