Studio: The Collective
MPAA Rated: Unrated
Run Time: 64 minutes

Our Score: 2.5 out of 5 stars

I love myself any zombie movies that I can get my hands on but this one really fails to deliver the goods. This film also only runs barely over an hour and it doesn’t quite feel like a film more like an extended short. I think the development of the characters and the story really take a hit due to this. The zombies are cool and kick some ass but once it starts to get good it ends. The film origins from Germany and maybe something is lost in there.

The film focuses about a virus that rapidly spreads and turns people into mindless homicidal maniacs. Our focus is with the character Michael who tries to visit this ex-girlfriend in Berlin but ends up with much more to deal with. He doesn’t meet up with his ex but he meets Harper from her apartment and together they manage to hold themselves up against the hordes of the infected around the building. It up to Michael find his ex-girlfriend Gabi and more importantly survive.

I may have been a little hard on this film since overall it is somewhat entertaining. I liked the zombies but just the story didn’t do it for me. Overall the production values were good and felt bigger than what they were. The DVD also lacks any special features at all which is also very disappointing. All in all, there are so many better zombie-infected films out there, so this is worth the skip and doesn’t reinvent the zombie genre.
