The film is a try hard mix of genres, with a zombie storyline weaving these absurdly odd characters together, in what could have been an "all star" zombie land, but was instead a dry, stale three day old baguette of a film.
The script never comes together, I'm all for nonsensical films, hell Dario Argento films I thoroughly enjoy, but alas this film was neither funny nor scary, the cast must have gotten such a kick on themselves for starring In a zombie film that most would consider beneath them, this was simply one of the worst films so far I've seen this year.
The cast does well with what they've been given, Chloe is always great no matter what she is in, however cannot lift the film herself, neither can Driver. The film was ambiguously confusing near the end and fails to leave any sort of mark on you. Not irreverent fun, not scary. Not emotional,bland and dry, bring water if you wish to ingest this dry bread.
