Solid zombie flick. Tensed, brutal n very engaging.
17 September 2018 | by Fella_shibbySee all my reviews

I am writing this review again as I found this to b an awesome zombie flick. I don't know how n y my earlier review of this film got deleted. The aerial scenes were very well shot. The railway platform scene is one of the best considering the tension n mayhem. The best character is the husband of the pregnant woman. I found this film to be much better than World war z. This film n La Horde r much better zombie films compared to the countless zombie flicks around.
