My guess is the makers of this film just thought: Hey, lets make a zombie movie and have a blind guy and a pregnant woman as the main leads. That should be interesting enough so we don't really have to write a script. Or have a plot. Or have reasonably developed characters. Or any other characters besides the zombies. Right?
Wrong. This movie is boring, annoying and irritating. Most of the movie its just the partially blind guy stumbling around aimlessly. Occasionally a random zombie pops out of nowhere and attacks him. He somehow survives all of this and makes it to a random house in the middle of the woods. For some reason that I cannot recall the young and extremely pregnant police officer winds up at the same house. So now we have a couple of people stumbling around, doing stupid things and occasionally getting attacked by random grumbling zombies. We still don't have a plot though. Or well developed characters. Or a script. There's exactly one more character that has more than one line in the movie and he is there to provide exposition on the zombie outbreak. The reason for the outbreak is very weakly explained as well. But I guess there's your plot.
By all the laws of evolution the two main characters would have never survived the messes they manage to get themselves into. The decisions they make are absolutely horrendous. But since this is a movie they survive till the end just so movie can have the heroic uplifting memorable ending that can actually be seen coming from about a thousand miles away. The ending comes equipped with the sort of annoying music score you would expect.
My advice is don't watch. There is nothing worth watching. You have seen it all before in other better movies.
