Zombie movies & TV series are ten-a-penny these days so it's nice to see one that approaches the subject from a new angle. Chose this as one of my Halloween movies, no regrets, thoroughly enjoyed it.
This was a refreshing new angle on the zombie genre, blending some nice action and moments of genuine tension with moments of smart funny dialogue. I surprised myself at how much I enjoyed it!
Just when you give up on zombie films you come across a gem like this. Brilliant film. Worth every minute!
A really great original concept bolstered by fine performances, comedy and gore but ultimately let down by it's cop out ending that ends things just when it was getting exciting. The problem is we invest too much time in following her story (even sticking with her despite her illogical and stupid decisions, i mean even michonne had the sense to cut their jaws and arms off to stop them from attacking) to see if she makes it home to her son only to have it end on one of the most exciting points in the film and therefore we are not rewarded for sticking with the story. It needs a sequel or an alternate ending for it showed so much potential until that lazy excuse for an ending.
This one of those films that more you watch the more irritating the main character becomes, you'll find yourself talking to your screen (like it could understand you any more than a zombie could) telling her what do out of pure frustration as you're forced to watch her do the dumbest possible thing in any given situation. Then you get the obvious, lame ending that most of these kind of stories have. Like a zombie in the desert you can see it coming a mile away. So it's bad, but not so bad I stopped watching. That's something at least and the dialogue is somewhat funny in places as well.
