When Jane Dormant is at her wit's end trying to make ends meet, she learns about the death of her aunt Alex. Expecting some potential benefits from the inheritance Jane makes her way to her grandmother's remote estate, Hobbes House, to attend the reading of the will. When Jane arrives at the estate she finds herself face to face with her estranged but successful half-sister Jennifer Dormant, who has brought along her lover Nigel Thatcher, an investment banker from London. The only other people attending are Eurydice Saul, the solicitor and Naser Mohammedin, a Syrian refugee, who worked as the groundskeeper for Jane and Jennifer's late grandmother. The reading of the will gets harshly interrupted when Saul is killed in a gruesome accident. When a storm cuts off the estate from the outside world, Jane is attacked by the reanimated corpse of Saul. Things spiral more and more out of control and soon enough the group faces a horde of bloodthirsty undead corpses seeking to kill.

Did You Know?


Nigel Thatcher inconspicuously steals several small items throughout the film without his pockets getting any fuller. This wasn't in the script, but started as a running gag between actor Kevin Leslie and writer Wolf-Peter Arand on set. See more »

Good enough for a Zombie movie
21 April 2021 | by duckman_079See all my reviews

A zombie movie doesn't need a good story, but this one is pretty decent. The acting was believable and the location was fitting. The only thing wrong was that there wasn't enough excitement. So I would say It's worth watching, but don't expect anything great. The story segues along at the end to imply that this is only the beginning. Although movie was a bit weak, I see potential if they could de a better job on a sequel (at this point, I probably got some gasps from other less impressed reviewers). I gave it a 5 because I'm glad I saw it but probably won't see it again though.
