Storyline

Radio Host, Logan Burnhardt, starts off his show with off-beat questions such as the whereabouts of the Taj Mahal, and why it is only photographed from the front. With listeners calling in on a variety of issues, he soon becomes aware that terrorists have planted chemical bombs in stadiums and crowded areas that make people violent. He subsequently asks his colleague to travel home to ensure that his wife, Gabbi, and child are safe - not knowing that terrorists will soon take over the building and hold him and other colleagues hostage and force them to make a live broadcast of their real agenda.

Excellent Budget Film
26 March 2014 | by accountcrapperSee all my reviews

I liked this film a lot. People have described it as like 28 Day Later - it isn't. Both films have zombies - the comparison ends there. This film is about post 911 paranoia - it says it right at the start of the film before any zombies appear the shock jock radio presenter said tonights shows is all about paranoia.

If you liked The Man From Earth or Frequency then I think you'd like this. It has that similar feel of a stage play or simple drama with heart. The actors were great- really strong in ensemble. I kind of fancy Patricia Tallman - she is easy on the eyes and she always seems like she has a warm heart - she always gives heart to a scene. The lead was really well played - he has a great voice and this film is nice to listen to which is a pleasant change from some of the more bombastic screamy action films you normally see.

So a simple genre movie with some decent exposition, terrific acting and solid pacing. You can find fault in this movie if you try to compare with movies that it is not - but I would prefer to watch this than some low calibre action crap. The world doesn't need another cheap action zombie horror - but the world could do with another few of these movies - thoughtful simple idea driven drama's. To all those involved - great job. Have watched it twice already and I enjoyed it both time.
