A British zombie masterpiece.
on 28 February 2013
This is a superb film, and a brilliant directorial effort from Dominic Brunt, clearly a man of many talents and tremendous potential. The acting between Brunt and his wife Joanne Mitchell is deeply saddening and sensitive in their roles of a couple whose relationship is disintegrating (perhaps the fact they are married in real life adds that intimacy to an exquisite performance by both of them). Then of course we have - zombies!! Although the landscape is not swarming with zombies, when they do appear, this makes for some very scary moments set against the tranquility and beauty of the film's Yorkshire location. There is enough juicy, bloody, gore to satisfy diehard zombie lovers without the film descending into a parody of zombie films. This is actually a film which maintains its integrity throughout, and is as much a classic as Siege of the Dead and La Horde, which themselves are great examples of the European zombie movie genre. Dominic Brunt is an incredible talent, both as an actor and director. I look forward to his next film.
