    A cliche horror/sci-fi film about the survivors of a global catastrophy facing an even bigger threat: Cannibals. Yes, humanity is at a brink of itself and people are turning in cannibals incapable of speech. It's brainless fun, gore a plenty, but utterly ridiculous.

    Not the best post-apocalyptic film I've seen, but still a decent watch. Outside of Netflix, I doubt that most people would have heard of this.

    Pretty generic Dystopia/Zombie mash-up (not with Zombies, but pretty much a carbon copy of the idea), with two surprisingly well cast support characters, both of which dont get enough screen development and interaction and despite some potential in that field, the same is sacrificed for giving screen time to the bloodless leads and driving the plot down the road of clichees and everything that has been done to death. Good sets and locations as well as solid action direction make this standard fare horror/action fare at best. Could have been much better, but much worse as well.

    Survivors of the next Ice Age find they have to contend with roaming bands of savage cannibals: it's the zombie apocalypse on ice! Or: The Zombie Ice Capades! Just having a little fun. Which they don't in the film. Everyone's very serious, which ain't bad but there's nada new here, it's all been practically blueprinted, so this is to watch only if you've seen every other zombie apocalypse and are still dying for another or you haven't seen zombie apocalypse at all before so this would be your first time. In a word, meh.
