Rating: 3 / 4 George Romeros
This did not suck at all. It's a Zombie flick, and totally believable. Really good use of not ominous, but uncomfortable music. Also very good use of music in other forms. A smart main character (be still my heart!), fast and mute Zombies. Note to self: fast zombies are scary, fast silent zombies are really scary. Sly bits of humor, innovative takes on what to do if stuck in an apartment building with nothing to do (relevant for global pandemics as well).
Good psychological exploration and character adaptation, a little reminiscent of my favorite apocalyptic film, The Last Man On Earth with Vincent Price. Even though it's evenly paced (few jump scares), it moved along such that when it was over, I wanted more.
