What a turd. The formula is perfect zombie movie formula. Group of commando-esque survivors with obligatory used-to-be-in-the-militaries and some random Richards and Helens thrown in for diversity and also to die later. The usual bunch. Zombies (in this case "feral humans") A "safety zone" to get too. The part I don't get is this: The movie seems to go out of its way to replace each of the standard items with something that's only marginally different, but I get the impression that I'm supposed to feel that's it's waaaayyyy different. "No, man, not zombies. Feral humans. Totally different. Like, I don't even get how you can draw a parallel, man. That's like comparing an apple to a wrench." And the "zombie/plague free zone" is replaced with an area that is made habitable again by making one of the weather machines that fucked up the planet in the first place work again. Why do story writers (and now I'm swinging this back to our little world here in the forum) feel that a change of wardrobe or a different name you give to something that is clearly a stand-in for something else somehow creates something new? Am I just jaded? Have I read and watched so much that nothing ever feels new?
