Avail­able: Now

on DVD Ev­ery low-bud­get hor­ror film­maker and his ra­bid, flesh-eat­ing dog are sink­ing their pen­nies into zom­bie flicks at present but few are as fresh or as imag­i­na­tive as this one. It’s set in West Africa, where the un­dead plague has struck, and fol­lows a US flight en­gi­neer and an African mil­i­tary man as they try to sur­vive the hordes of flesh-eaters and find a safe zone. It has the ten­sion, the bleak­ness and the gore the genre de­mands and the African set­ting is in­spired.

Ex­tras: ★★★ An hon­est, eye-open­ing mak­ing-of with video-diary snip­pets and in­ter­views.
