This is a review of the trailer.... that shit was
auch wenn man sich hier an eine menge gewöhnen muss (schauspiel, geschwindigkeit der dramaturgie etc.) ist es ein lohnenswerter film, wenn auch nicht der übliche horror action streifen, den manche hier zu erwarten scheinen.
If you're looking for a high-octane movie about people fighting zombies, this ain't the one. This is a quiet zombie flick that unfolds itself slowly and carefully. A lot of zombie movies center around the plague itself and finding a cure, but this one focuses on the characters and the journeys they're taking. I loved the chemistry between the two leads, and I love that they both drastically change and grow as a result of their journey. The prosthetic designs are really cool, too!
The film adds a new mythology to the 'why' of a zombie apocalypse. There are not a lot of kills but the ones that are shown (and the scenes with zombies) are well done (as were the insect scenes). It's a road film really as two women attempt to reach a German village. The leads are really strong, the script is tight, the film is nicely shot, the scenery is stunning, and the (most unexpected) ending is spot on. It's not your garden-variety zombie movie.
Good zombie movie. it was really original. I liked it and wished it was a little more detailed about what happens to the characters at the end.
