  1. Okay.. Maybe not thousands.. But a lot!

    Just got home from the theater, where the director/producer/writer etc. presented his movie. For a Danish horror-zombie flick, this rocks.. But only for the one reason that it's just a zombie-flick! Which isn't a bad thing.. At all..

    It's got what you would desire in a zombie-movie, no sense, no plot, no deep characters.. Just zombies attacking and eating people!

    I only have two complaints, which is the way it was shot.. It's shaking quite a bit, to make that confusing scary feeling.. Only it's so dark to begin with, it doesn't help at all, at seeing what the hell is happening..

    The other thing:


    The last and "epic" battle between the before mentioned dead guy and his brother (our hero) isn't epic at all.. It's over way too soon..

    But seen with no expectations or prejudice.. This rocks!!

  2. I just saw this little gorefest in the shops and thought, well, just cashing in on the zombie hype still going on. But once I plugged it in the DVD player I came beware that we had something special. The director, Casper Haugegaard surely knows how to do things. When you have almost no budget then you will have to use the stuff you have and for him it was the location and the camera. For the location, it's a cellar under a church. So dark you can't see a zombie but he uses shaky shots to make it look real, remember Cloverfield and REC, and only uses the light on the camera to view things. Well, it worked out fine. The zombies are also a bit easily done, not like those Italian ones, but just some normal guys going crazy like in the British zombie flicks. The storyline doesn't make any sense but as so many zombie flicks, it's all about those little shockers. And they really do their work, it is messy and bloody and even sometimes gory. Due the fact that it clocks in at 50 minutes you can't really state that it is a full feature but surely one to pick up especially for the extras which are even better than the main feature, the director even made some music clips and let me say that Cephalic Carnage's Ohrwurm do has it all, nudity, blood and ultra gore, definitely not on youtube. And there is even another short available and worth watching, Kaeldermenneske. So if you come across this unknown feature, pick it up

  3. i liked it! , this movie wasn't supposed to have a major big story, but it just speaks about simple things, its like when u watch something that is short but gives a lot of meaning to it, this movie is one of them :D, i think the director/writer just wanted like a brief movie but still scary.

    I liked the effects they had and there isn't much of story to tell but its still good though 🙂 of course id say they needed a little more work on ending and story, yet i still think its good and frightening.

    I rate it 7 for good effects, makeup, acting, it also left me confused a bit.

    Worth Watching :D!
