Film Grabs Hold in the First Few Minutes
And NEVER Lets Go
Also known as: MUTANI
director: David Morlet
starring: Helene de Fougerolles · Francis Renaud · Dida Diafat · Marie-Sohna
survive the inevitable zombie apocalypse, one should not get too attached
to anyone or anything. That's the premise in the center of David Morlet's
film. And it represents a unique view of the genre. Besides the horrific
persistence of tireless, ravenous living dead creatures, these are monsters
with the faces of our loved ones. The story begins in the middle of
a zombie apocalypse. A young couple - initially traveling around in
an ambulance, trying to help victims - now attempt to find safety in
the midst of the chaos. They take refuge in an abandoned building. She
is pregnant but he is infected.
Even today, when absolutely EVERYONE
is sick of the zombie genre (thanks mostly to the absurd speeches and
inept posturing of what has become the disaster of television's Walking
Dead in the wake of all the good directors - like Ernest Dickerson
- leaving the series), it's refreshing to know that some remarkable
ones are still being made. This movie will grab ahold within the first
few minutes and NEVER let go!

AM HERO and (for fans of XXX fare) PORN
OF THE DEAD.
