review by
Mike Haberfelner

It's Dana's (Amanda K. Morales) 30th birthday, and this one's bound to be special, as her estranged father Rufus (Andrew Hunsicker) has promised to come by to make up for all the lost years ... but then Rufus doesn't turn up. What Dana of course doesn't know is driving up to hers he took a nap in his car to not fall asleep on the wheel and simply overslept. Anyways, his no-show breaks her heart a bit, but what's even worse is ... all her friends are infected by - something really, that makes them rot away, have morbid hallucinations, and puke a lot before dying. So Dana's not in a good place (both literally and metaphorically) at all - but thank God Rufus finally arrives on the scene before the virus has taken hold of her, and takes her to a motel to try to get her back on track ... but it doesn't work that way, she's just deteriorating slower than her friends, and despite his best efforts, dad has no means to heal her and might not even be able to ward off being infected himself ...

 

Even if this is not an actual zombie movie in the most narrow definition of the genre, zombie fans will like this one for all the morbid details, the make-up and the bodily fluids erupting from every pore of the infected. But in all actuality this is more of a character piece, about a father honestly wanting to make up to his daughter and fighting his inner demons - and actually seeing the "outer" demons waaay too late because of it. And it's the clever blend between these two very separate approaches, paired with a subtle direction and strong performances by all that really makes this movie, and puts it way beyond your usual genre fare!
