This is worth a watch, but only once. Good fathers day movie for teens to watch, they may appreciate dad a little more.
It is a shoe string budget production with limited number of sets and locations. Special effects are extremely minimal with very quick camera shots to hide it.
The acting by the main character, the dad , is very good. With a better script and more money he could have carried the movie a lot farther. Oh well.
This movie is more like a snapshot of a couple days , not explaining how the sickness starts or even if it is world wide. For all the audience knows it could be just the immediate few miles. No way to tell.
I would not call it a zombie movie. The infected would be a better way to see it. They are not dead. And they die just fine. More of a 28 days effect than anything else.
The sick are pretty convincing, I have to admit. The daughter is your typical spoiled teen brat so no issues there.
There is no closure to the bigger infection story, the audience is asked to be content with the predictable ending involving father and daughter.
Probably a better watch if you drink a few beers first. I have given up alcohol, so I had to watch it dry.
I seen worse.
