    An unoriginal zombie film without style nor substance, yet being praised for all three qualities. I'm not sure what it is with critics eating up the most obviously bait techniques. The best symbolism is the post-credits parrot, a metaphor for the director's attempt at style.
    Its characters behave ridiculously. There are several moments throughout the film where a human and a zombie will just stare each other in the face, neither acting with any motive to defend or attack. It's just, ya know, artsy that way. The shots were often intentionally focused on nothing, which, ya know, is just artsy woah. That's also why every single zombie stands still before its prey is alerted to its presence. Give 'em a head start, don't make it too hard for 'em, maybe it's artsy this way too.
    I've seen many critics praise it for its originality, but that's really because film critics that aren't me are almost all just dumb. Zombies having vague memories of their past behaviors, the muted look at the zombie apocalypse, even the vogue avent garde shooting have all been done several times over in indie zombie films. I've never seen all three put together with so little effort to sell the actual premise of the movie, though. I'm really quite baffled that even aspects like the zombies crying out to get the attention of other infected is being praised as an original trick--what year is this?
    An empty, useless, and incredibly lazy film.

    Splatterhouse 5 Hehe...now I want to watch it to see if I agree with you. I probably will.

    Husky Wing The movie has nothing to do with my take on critics as a whole, but it sure does express why I like Roger Ebert.

    Husky Wing OH you mean Ravenous. Yeah okay yeah. Even if I didn't know anything about your taste, your name alone says "I am experienced with the horror genre," so I doubt you'd find anything new here.
