Finally, After Some Years...A Really Good Zombie Survival Horror Epic!
The past few years, American zombie horror movies have since fallen into the area of mediocrity. Even the recent fan favorite “Zombieland” wasn’t all that great. Even the proclaimed zombie maestro George Romero (watch me get hate mail for this) have fallen with his “Survival of the Dead”. I looked into the pages of comic books and found the excellent zombie epic “The Walking Dead” but there really wasn’t that much in the way of cinema until the French …

This is not really a horror movie per say as it is much more a survival film and a really good one at that. I have to give credit to writer/director Ford Brothers for going with the less is more type of thinking here. Of course budget may have dictated that but still.
