Really dull and boring. Should be entitled "People standing around staring."
6 March 2018 | by See all my reviews

I can only assume that the writer or director had some idea for some scenes and said "Let's make a movie out of these scenes and find some reason to create that scene." "Should we bother with a plot or character development?" "Nope. I want a scene where a lady is in a field and is hiding in the plants from a zombie." "Why would someone in the middle of a zombie apocalypse be out there without a weapon?" "I don't know and don't care. Then I want a scene where a lady drives into a town and turns on her car radio to attract zombies, she kills one, and then drives off." "Why?" "I DON'T KNOW AND I DON'T CARE!"

This is one of those movies where it's impossible to imagine these characters surviving for five minutes. They constantly make stupid decisions for no reason at all. And the zombies can apparently teleport and go from being 500 feet away to 5 feet in a matter of moments just so that they can get in a cheap jump scare and kill another character. The good news is the characters are so flat and boring you won't care.

What we're left with is a movie with a lot, and I mean A LOT, of shots of people standing around staring. The zombies stare. The character stare. And after some staring they either chase or fight each other. But I can only assume that their budget couldn't cover any decent special effects so it's a lot of people being killed off-screen.

After the first twenty minutes I was just watching it in a sort of fascinated horror waiting for any sort of hint of a plot. But none ever arrived. Spend your time on ANYTHING else.

P.S. The character who is blissfully unaware of what is going on was kiiiinda a funny idea but the idea that the main characters wouldn't even bother to tell him was just as stupid as the rest of their decisions. Especially since he too can teleport like the zombies do and apparently cannot be seen in the side view mirror on cars.
