Autumn-What if 99.99% of the world's population dropped dead within a space of five minutes? What if you were one of the "lucky" few to survive? What if the dead slowly rose up...and walked away from you? These are among many of the questions asked by this low budget film that is overwhelmingly scathed by critics and viewers alike. As far as apocolyptic/zombie films go this one is not a gut muncher. The zombies at first are seemingly automatons stumbling about with no other purprose than to slowly rot. What the movie focuses on is the characters who do survive and how they handle their losses. Not only are their families and friends dead but so is the "old way" of life. No phones, no electricty and no help. Only shuffling corpses. A small band of survivors split into three groups after initially getting together in one building. One group stays determined to wait for help. One group decides to embark on a drug fueled party and three people leave the city to find a secure place in the country. The film casts its lot with the latter group although we do get the fate of the other groups. As time goes on the zombies seem to be adjusting to their new condition and begin to exhibit some rather disturbing behavior. Straight up if you are looking for an exciting action packed "kill the zombie movie" you're in the wrong place with this one. This is more of a quiet piece on the end of civilization as we know it and how people cope (or don't) to a radically changed daily life. The zombie makeup is worthy of a Romero movie but again, this isn't a thrilling splatter fest.The film has its flaws but I find it much smarter than 95% of the direct to dvd zombie genre out there.
