This is an original idea, very badly done
This could have been a great movie, given some slight plot changes and if it had been filmed by someone with `style' (or maybe less style). I'm not going to say it was amateurish because the filming itself isn't bad it's the subject matter.
It's your standard zombie apocalypse, presumably this occurred long enough ago that humans are adapting (giving birth to immune kids who are now 8 - 12 years old), but to me it all felt very `mid-apocalypse' like you're talking weeks not decades.
The film is from the point of view of a female child 9 years of age who runs away from a centre where she's being barbarically tested on because she has marks on her neck showing she's immune. This I also found unbelievable (the running away part), you've had say 15 years to perfect your `containment, testing, eradication' system... so how come the zombies are escaping, the kid's escaping... it's falling apart at the seams, how the hell did they last 15 years?
It is awash with flashbacks which explain the storyline/history while the kid walks... but to be honest I found it hard to care beyond, uh, the first 30 seconds of the movie.
Also filming in minimal colour while leaving the blood `red' does not make a film scary, just makes the blood look fake.
The ending, wow that is so one of the things that needs to be changed! It is by far the lamest, lousiest, dumbest, stupidest... I think you get the idea, the ending sucks big hairy mule b***s. Whoever wrote this ending was quite obviously having a great laugh at the movie goers paying good money to see this film (thank god I watched it free on Love Film!)
What I liked about the movie...
The concept... a future where apocalypse born children are evolving to fit the new order.
The immune also being of no interest to the undead, the undead don't even seem to notice them but when adults come along the zombies go wild.
The Zombie Movie
As a genre you have certain expectations of your `average' zombie flick and you get good ones (Resident Evils, The Romero movies, Dead Air), you get your classics which are good but you don't really know why (Zombie Flesh Eaters, Zombie Holocaust) and your funny, which is sometimes intentional and sometimes not (Shaun, Zombieland, Dance of the Dead, Flight of the Living dead) and your appalling pieces of junk (we shall not name) but they all have a core story a formula if you will... Zombie apocalypse, Group of unlikely survivors who get whittled down to one or two survivors by the end of the film, THE END
As my cousin Suzy would say, this film is just wrong.
I would like to see this concept reworked, written and filmed by people with some common sense, someone who'd make it more believable, it may be a movie about Zombies but it doesn't mean it can bend the rules of time and space (if they wanted to do that they should have made SciFi)
