Did NOT expect to like this movie, really did. Very interesting spin on the classic zombie story, won’t give any more away. I love the sparse environment, too: great way to deal with having a small budget? Have the entire movie take place in one building. Really impressed with this movie. Had a few small issues: one major pet peeve of mine is when zombies obviously disregard their instincts, ie. one is “hiding” behind a chair while everyone walks in. I mean, aren’t they mindless eating machines? When did they become tacticians? But very much worth the watch if you like zombie movies.
