This isn't the quasi- realist American horror of Romero and it isn't the chunky, in your face zombie opera shock of Fulci. This is the zombie film as dark, lyrical, melancholy fairy tale, a film that exists in a class of its own.

Director Jorge Grau has an incredible eye and creates a lavish horror spectacle.
