Zombies have pretty much overrun the UK. No cause for this is known, there isn't even a clear pattern to these zombies, some are just stumbling about slowly, some are long distance runners - but all are lethal, feed on human flesh, and a zombie bite turns one into a zombie within hours.

A group of people from very different strokes of life band together out of necessity rather than friendship, and try to make it to the next army base: There's old Bill (Harry Keeling), who witnessed his grandchildren being killed, pre-teen Melanie (Alice Joyce), who saw her parents turn into zombies, cop Dermott (Edward Nudd), juvenile delinquent Sam (Tom Murton), slightly idiotic but well-meaning Rik (Richard Lee O'Donnell), Rik's girl Candi (Jade Blocksidge), and Candi's best friend Kelly (Alexandra Lyon), whom Candi abandoned in a club, but who proves to be surprisingly resilient despite her party girl attire and her high heels.

Unfortunately, the group doesn't get along at all, and the time they don't spend running from zombies, they spend arguing and fighting between one another ... which makes it all the easier for the zombies to gradually decimate them. And then they meet Ella (Adelle Overton), a woman fleeing from the army base, which has already been overrun by the undead.

And slowly but surely our heroes run out of options ...

 

Zombie Hood might not exactly tell the most original story - but it does so in a refreshing way, taking a light-footed, even darkly humourous approach to its dead serious subject matter (without ever becoming moronic), and while not exactly shying away from violence, the film also leaves plenty to the imagination and doesn't go all slaughterhouse all of the time, rather builds its story on suspense then pure gore. Add to that some rather witty dialogue and an interesting and fleshed out cast of characters played by a competent cast of actors, and you've got yourself a pretty enjoyable piece of genre cinema.

Recommended.
