Claudio is a businessman at the top of his game. On his way to an important meeting, his elevator gets stuck. What starts out as a mere technical difficulty turns out to be a catastrophe of much larger proportions. Bit by bit and with his cell phone being the only source of information as he is trapped between floors, Claudio realizes that the world as he knew it has completely gone down the drain. Once familiar faces have turned savage and blood-smeared. A lethal virus is transforming people into highly contagious, homicidal zombies. Trapped inside a metal cage, with the ravenous ghouls out to get him, Claudio must rely entirely on his wits and survival instincts to break out of this hell on earth.Written by
I have gotten in the habit of always reading the reviews before I watch a zombie movie, and I have seen A LOT. i have been through almost the entire wiki list of zombie films, but I check back occasionally because I would hate to miss one that could be awful. I have seen some horrible ones and some really good ones and ones that people say will be bad usually dont bother me that much. Usually some schmuck complaining that the zombies are too cliche.....which to me translates into "zombies acting how zombies should act"....or "the peoples emotions or responses are too cliche"........and I got to the point where i thought maybe the cliche answers about cliche things in the movies were bogus. It turns our I was right again with this movie.
I wanted to rate it a 9/10 but figured I would give it top marks just to offset the morons that left very low scores. The reason behind that is that this movie is awesome! I have seen the one about the guy who gets stuck in a bathroom stall during the outbreak. The elevator is different so it had its own challenges, but they were handled well. Not just well, really well. When he finally gets the chance to get out, I caught myself telling him to stay put. I didnt want him out of the elevator. I dont know about the budget, but it seems they had enough money to do whatever they wanted and do it really well. It shows because the movie is good in almost every way. the style of filming, the actors and their character development, the scenery, the suspense.....what did I forget?
I would have not been surprised if this was a warner brothers film or something based on how well it was done. This is one movie that will be not only hard to forget, it was done so well it spoiled me with zombie films a bit, so from now I might stick my nose up to some other ones I might have liked but will probably suck compared to this.
Dont believe the stupid reviews that talk about "indy" films or "low budget" or "cliche zombie". They were looking to be critical from the start and they found it, surprised? This movie is great and if you are looking for a zombie movie that keeps the pace going, has a good plot with twists, drama, gore, good characters and stuff like that, you will like this.
