Oh la la... C'était un bien terrible film ça. Dégueu... Soit il ne se passait rien du tout, soit il n'y avait que sexe, sang et ados complètement stupide! J'espère seulement que Candice Accola n'a pas choisi de jouer dedans car elle croyait le script bon.
The set up is an original take on a zombie film, setting the dead girl more as a victim than a threat and setting up a conflict that both the characters and the audiences will have to confront: just because it looks and used to be human... does that mean that it is one? I feel like the movie does a good job of blurring the lines of morality, even if ultimately for me, what goes on In this film is profoundly wrong.
A big problem that the film has is that the young men in the film are the true villains and there aren't really any characters to cheer for here, only some you hate less than others. The ending is also a disappointment, with some things happening with only a thin explanation and at least one complete character overhaul. The film deals with the exploitation and objectification of women through metaphor quite effectively. I really think that there is a lot of intelligence and ingenuity at work here but the fact of the matter is that some more casual movie goers who only watch movies to have a good time and not necessarily to be moved or to have their perceptions twisted and turned around simply will not be able to grasp onto this picture. Many will dismiss it as exploitative trash but if you can stomach it it's a well made film that will make you uncomfortable; and it should because it's about an unpleasant subject that needs to be discussed.

Rickie is bent on impressing his childhood crush, who is dating one of the boys who bullies him. He doesn't agree with JT, but is soon caught in between.
There's a lot of opportunity here for a movie that could probably tackle interesting issues like women as objects of desire, sexual attraction, teen isolation. Nope. It does none of those. It goes for the gore, but then forgets to go all the way with its concept.
Thus, you're left with a film that is predictable and lifeless. It ends up being just another ordinary zombie film, which is a shame because it's trying to be everything else but that.
