review by
Mike Haberfelner

Carly (Lyndsey Lantz) and Rina's (Andrea Nelson) has seen better days, as have their lives - and then some unlucky circumstances leave them stranded in a rundown motel. And they couldn't have picked a worse time, too, as a zombie outbreak has taken hold of the area, and suddenly, they find themselves in their room with Gloria (Diana Castrillon), a woman who has been bitten by a zombie and who Carly, med-school drop-out, thinks she can help. Of course, she can't, and Gloria almost kills them. Wyatt (Joshua Keller Katz), another resident at the motel, thinks he knows a way out, and he has a gun, so Carly and Rina are glad to follow him - but they don't get far, and eventually even Rina starts to turn - and it's only then that she and Carly start to realize how much they're in love with one another, but by that time it might already be too late ...

 

Now zombie movies these days are a dime a dozen, and many of them revolve around the same tropes - so it's really refreshing to see a genre entry that finds a different perspective for a change, like By Day's End, where the zombies, though omni-present and the film's driving force, become the backdrop of a relationship drama about love lost and found again, where interesting characters take center stage. And even if the film's mostly shot found footage style, this approach is fortunately abandoned every now and again to really allow certain scenes their full emotional impact. And a strong cast and a suitably subtle directorial effort sure help make this a pretty cool movie.
