Storyline

A low-budget film about zombies soon features the best cast money could not buy, but the problem is that the new actors are not exactly getting along with the crew. Everyone involved is soon receiving a lesson in the merits of perseverance, the preciousness of family bonds and of course the dangers of the living dead. Written by aghaemi

A Genuinely Meta Film
27 September 2019 | by wvwriterSee all my reviews

I went into this film expecting a low-budget and hopefully less-than typical zombie movie. I'm glad to say this movie turned out to be an incredibly fun watch. Right when you think you've finished up and have gotten exactly what you expected, the film completely throws you in the opposite direction and puts a lens on the genre in such a way that is fun, funny, and outright entertaining. As a fan of both zombie horror and foreign films, I really suggest you check this one out.
