4.0 out of 5 stars Poor title, 2 July 2010
This review is from: Zombie Virus On Mulberry Street [DVD] [2007] (DVD)
The film is actually called just; "Mulberry Street", this was sadly lumbered with the clunky "zombie virus on Mulberry Street" for its UK release. It also doesn't actually have any zombies in it, its a virus carried by rats. But lets not get bogged down in details.
As a film it has a gritty, authentic feel to it, that reminds me of independant 70's cinema. Light on dialogue and heavy on social commentary this starts as more of a drama than horror film and has a slow burning, measured pace. But halfway through, the rat people/zombies/infected start to terrorise the residents of a tower block and there is some good and quite gruesome action scenes, as the characters whom we have been introduced to in some depth are picked off.

Its clear to see the budget limitations; the lack of any recognisable actors, limited sets and locations and some ropey looking CGI, but it does a good job with what it has and is a good example of inventive low budget filmmaking. Its also refreshing to see a zombie film with a complete lack of guns, the characters in the film are from the poor areas of town and have no access to weaponry, so use whatever they have handy.

If your expecting lots of zombie action, you'll may be dissapointed, but this is an interesting and refreshing film, in a genre that is well trodden.
