A watercolour of a zombie movie
12 March 2018 | by thekarmicnomadSee all my reviews

The infected are confused and hostile they roam the land looking for healthy people to bite - this time with a French twist.

It is nice to have a change from the glut of U.S and U.K offerings; despite the obvious similarities in setup the style is definitely different.

Two groups of survivors do their thing: running, fighting, crying, dying. There are elements of dark humour and a few surreal moments that were welcomingly unexpected.

The film does become a bit stereotypical French artsy. Some of the shots of scenery are a bit long and strange - almost as if the director really wanted to do something more high-brow than a zombie movie.

This is fairly straight forward. Details of some of the zombie-law are left to the viewers discretion. The ending was too artsy and open for me.

If you have a lot of zombie films under your belt then sure give this a go. If you are fairly new to the genre then this may feel like a waste of your time and I would direct you towards the likes of "REC", "Carriers", "28 Days Later" or "Day of the Dead"
