It's alright. It's a relatively effective zombie film, no elements, good or bad, really stand out. Well, maybe besides the horrible cinematography during action sequences, lots of jump cuts, hard cuts, and dutch angles, bleh. Acting is alright, script is alright, slow burn pacing is alright, soundtrack and score are alright, post-apocalyptic world-building is alright. It's alright, it's alright, it's alright, she moves in mysterious ways. Works thematically, zombie movies always have some semblance of social criticism about violence and class, "people killing people," and a big emphasis on sexism, survival, family dynamics, and sexual assault in this one. Didn't really offend me, but didn't really wow me (except for child murder). Wasn't really horrifying (did get me with the Mailer jump scare), wasn't really fun. Nothing really creative or original. It's alright and that's okay.
