This movie was fun! If you want to survive in this world as a B grade horror film, you’ve got to have fun. And I don’t mean funny, like slapstick or anything. I mean, I want to watch the movie and feel like the people in it and the people who made it had fun, and are proud of what they did. It’s a beautifully shot movie, following two friends as they drive around the woods and country through a zombie apocalypse kind of thing. The makeup’s not great, the acting’s not great, but it’s fun! I know, 69 isn’t a good score necessarily, but I do really recommend you watch this movie. There’s a real sweetness to it. And the writer/director/main actor pulled this entirely together on a $6000 budget. I’d say that’s pretty darn good!
