Writer/Director Antonio Tublen's low budget film Zoo is an unsuccessful look at love during a zombie pandemic.
Karen (Zoë Tapper) and John (Ed Speleers) live in a high rise flat and their marriage is disintegrating.
When news of a zombie infection comes through, they are trapped in their flat. They draw a large X on their window and wait to be rescued.
The time together gets the couple to bond again helped by the various drugs they have been taking. They interact with various people that come into their lives. Such as an uninfected couple who come to live with them but Karen is unhappy because it means sharing scarce food so she bakes them biscuits laced with speed.
Later on Karen stupidly opens the door to a gang of marauders, it all leads to a strengthening of the relationship between the couple as they fight off all comers.
The location of the film mainly consists of the flat and the bath. It is a bottle film but Tublen's film just does not make sense. I could never understand why they just let in people in their flat when they did not want them there and worse just to randomly open the door without checking for dangers.
Maybe the intention of the film was to be a bizarre Scandi black romantic comedy, in that case it flew over my head. Tapper and Speleers make the most from the material they have been given.
