You probably want to watch 'Here Alone' (2016)
« on: July 15, 2017, 09:03:38 AM »
Here Alone is the closest thing to Cataclysm: The Motion Picture anybody is ever going to make. It's also a pretty good slow burn thriller, which is shocking, because it's an independent zombie movie and those are almost always terrible. I wouldn't recommend it to everybody, but if you're here to read this, you probably want to watch it.

Strong acting, script, pacing, and cinematography.
Weak plot, effects, and musical score.

Like CDDA, it's pretty depressing.
Unlike CDDA, no-one is mercilessly hunted down and killed by a moose for no conceivable reason.

Watched it after reading this.
I expected a zombie movie, got an hour of character development in an ~80 minute movie with zombie movie plot structure.
If you're in it for the zombies or survival, skip it.

Meh, it was ok.  Mostly not a zombie movie, really - superficially, yes, but that's not really the main point.  It was mostly about the character development... and then it wastes it all.
This is the text that goes under the post, and there ^ is the post, so this is where it goes.

Just wanted to say I saw it today and thoroughly enjoyed it. It's not the greatest horror/zombie movie I've seen, but I don't regret spending my time watching it
