Tagline: Severed Limbs and buckets of gore... Bring a Mop!
Original Title: To Kako
Review: This is the first zombie film to come out of Greece and although the initial concept is a little surreal, this soon starts flowing and begins to create an extremely sinister atmosphere of chaos, as Athens descends into a '28 Days' style melting pot of gore, infection and the living dead, there is also the Romero hallmark of the survivors being lest trust worthy than the zommers...
Zombie quality ***
Lots of blood, lots of latex and the occasional pair of contact lenses… these undead are not spectacular but the rule of the film seems to be if you are covered with blood and latex you're a zombie, if it's just blood – you're a survivor…
Zombie Behaviour ***
They travel in packs and eat anyone they encounter and within seconds there's entrails, blood and more zombies… they are quick and infectious, so these look more like Zack Snyders ‘Dawn of the Dead' zombies than anything Romero created...
Zombie Threat ****
Bloody huge!! Some nice early footage of the infection spreading through a club and a football match. They get bitten and then get up, straight away, so the infection spreads like shit off a stick!!
Gore Content ***
Some decent guts and limbs being severed keeps the gore flowing and then there's an absolutely insane restaurant scene filled with decapitations and enough severed cadavers to keep that body count climbing.
Overall Quality ****
Amazingly low budget, but with some masterful pieces to it! The empty city scapes, the huge amount of decapitations and perhaps best of all the overwhelming sense of dread, mistrust and the need to survive… and the suspicion of everyone else who has survived and a almost Romero-ian sense of building fear… who has survived and perhaps more importantly, how? NOT NOTLD but more soul than a lot of its closer contemporaries...
