Audience Reviews for Day X
It's watchable, and when you're trudging through the zombie genre, that's a helluva accomplishment. I originally saw this on the Crackle.com ZombieFest to promote Zombieland, and as of April 21 2010 it is still available for free viewing there ( http://www.crackle.com/c/Zombiefest# ). I picked it because it was the only full length piece I had never heard of. This is really only territory for initiated zombie genre addicts. It's an outbreak movie with one central setting. Acting varies from mediocre to tolerable. Don't remember much about the zombie makeup (which means it wasn't stellar) and won't be bothered checking. I give this three stars instead of 2 or 2.5 because I distinctly remember a few scenes where characters sneak out and back into their hiding area. The filmmakers did a great job at capturing the tension of such a situation (trying to get past or outrun zombies to your tiny entry point to safety) by confusing cross-cutting that makes you feel panicked and suddenly disjointed within the space defined. I would watch it again on a night when I want mid-level zombie thrills and can't stand to watch "Days of Darkness" again.
High quality, low-budget film. There's more story in this one indy film than in all of Romero's Zombie films, combined.
