A Ground-breaking movie - simple zombie movie that chills you to the bones! When I saw it, I was impressed. The film matter-of-factly put a black man in the main role. He was perfect for the role, taking charge of the situation and trying to keep everyone sane. The movie is scary because of the sense of impending doom. Trapped in a house with seemingly nowhere to go, it is easy to panic. Even though the movie is incredibly scary, it has it's moments of ironic, though slightly morbid humor.
