    Saw this little gem last night at the Toronto After Dark Film fest. It's a gritty low budget Rat-Zombie apocalyptic film that's part 28 days later part Night of the living dead. It had a really good early 80's vibe to it, from it's folkey score to it's reality urban feel. The character development was well done and good acting to match.

    So if you get a chance to see it, I would definitely recommend anyone on here to check it out.

    Enjoyed this one as well. Loved the setting, score and Coco cracked me up :D
    It is kinda like 28 Days Later while still doing its 'own thing'. Worth checking out!

    Loved this movie! The 28 Days Later comparison is spot-on. The main characters are well developed and I wanted to see 'em make it. (An important element in "zombie" movies.) The only drawback was a few cheesy rat makeups. One in particular was featured in a peephole. That can be easily forgiven since it's such a damn good horror movie. How many 80's "classics" feature a few cheesy FX shots? :D The grungy locations hark back to Henenlotter's Basket Case. Finally, a good horror movie from the After Dark Horrorfest.

    This was the first film I watched from the new After Dark series. It's not really a "zombie" movie due to the fact that the people are infected and never actually die and come back to life. In addition to 28 days later, i felt a little Demons 2, and a touch of Dawn Of The Dead. I liked the movie and thankfully it ran only 84 minutes, so i didn't lose interest. After I've seen the other 7 movies, I'll be able to tell how good or bad this really is. For now I'm gonna rate it a 6.5 out of 10.

    I absolutely hated this. HATED it. Nearly nothing happens, terrible camera work, horrible acting...I didn't even finish it, and I finish anything. I can't think of the last film before this that I couldn't finish. It's the first of the After Dark 2007 films I've watched, and I really hope this isn't a precursor of what I have to look forward to :nervous:
     
  11. I LOVED it! Not one bad thing about it. There's one thing about a part at the end I didn't get, however. Since I don't know how to post a spoiler correctly, can someone who might be able to answer, PM me? Thanx!!! :)

    I thought overall it was pretty good---the best part is that the characters seemed more realistic than in a lot of other horror films. They all had personality and you wanted to see them make it. I liked the two old guys most of all. That was another cool thing about it, the characters were from all kinds of ages and backgrounds, which is something you almost never see.

    I'd say the worst part about it was probably the whole thing about "rat people." I understand they probably did it to differentiate from 28 DAYS LATER and similar movies, but the makeup wasn't great, and it would have been scarier to just have crazy infected people.

    It also moved a little slow and I think tried to be a little too arty at times when the story didn't really warrant it. But I'd say it was above average, and miles beyond what we usually see from After Dark films.

    I find I tend to like films that get allot of different reactions from people and looking at the last three posts

    KamuiX - Hated It
    VideoViolence - Loved it
    allmessedup - Pretty good

    I'm not suprised I liked it as much as I did.

    I was pleasantly surprised as I have not heard many good things about this from everyone I know that saw it.It was low budget, but very entertaining and suspenseful.I really liked the female leads in this as well.

    I got around to watching this and really enjoyed it. Didn't care for the ending though, but rest of it was good.

    While not having to do with the story, the stock footage of the NY skyline they used, they probably should have gotten something a bit newer as the WTC is no longer there. D'oh!

    I didn't care for it. Out of this years 8-horror movies to die for, my favorite was Unearthed and coming in second was Borderland and Nightmare Man.

    I heard Nightmare Man sucked nine kinds of nutsack but I'll wait to form my own opinion until I've seen it.

    I liked the characters (I got pretty attached to them), loved the pacing and the fact that you weren't sure who would die, and thought the use of rats and rat people was actually scarier than yet another zombie film. I'm not sure if I liked the ending but overall I thought it was a great, low-budget flick that I'll definitely watch again.
