Musings:
It was very British, yeah, you can certainly see where something is made. Even the music was very British, but then it was because I heard it in another creepy show.

A friend was all you must watch it! Oh...there are zombies. Dang, zombies give me nightmares.

It started a bit slow, and I did wonder if I would even bother. But it picks up, in this slow creepy way. And that end. Chilling.

The kid does a great job as this weird zombie hybrid. She does steal the show. And that end, damn. I can not get away from that.

So I would recommend it for it being different, fine for being British. They do make different zombies movies. But then it is based on a book, and even if I have not read it, well there are awlays different ways to adapt something and I liked the bleakness of it all.

But the cat, the cat! I wanted to cry.

Anyhow, good movie.

  4. I loved this one. It was really different. My husband makes me watch all the zombie movies so I'm happy to find one we both like with a new spin on the genre.

    And that ending! lol

  6. I still need to watch this! I really enjoyed the book and I'm curious about the adaptation. I think I can stream it from Netflix or Amazon, so I should really do that soon.

  10. I don't usually do zombies but this one was okay. The ending didn't make much sense for me. Maybe if I was in the character's head to understand her reasoning.
