“Nobody is immune to fear”…more like nobody is immune to being bored. Zombie films are always welcome in my horror library.  This film barely registers as a horror film, yet alone a zombie film.  If it spent more time trying to be a zombie film and less on an MTV music video, it might have something. I do want to add though, I did like the color effects showcasing the apocalypse and the blood. Though story is just boring and weak and relies to much on flashbacks to help.

With a world that has turned most humans to zombies, caused by a virus, we follow a young girl, Camille, as she tries to find her mother. With the whole world in chaos and all alone Camille sets out to find others like her in order to survive.  Don’t even get me started on the film’s terrible ending.  Holy crap.

The special features on this DVD include a brief featurette “The Making of Descendents”,. There is also some music videos including Voodo Zombie, Los Ninos and Llevane, didn’t interest me at all. Lastly there is a trailer gallery. The DVD does come with a decent audio through it Dolby Digital 5.1 track, wish the scares would have been their to accompany it.
