A pandemic has ravaged the earth and turned the infected into homicidal zombies. Only a few seem to be immune, but always live in fear of being attacked by the infected. One of them is Cairo (Garrett Barghash), who seems to have survived rather by mistake than design, as his survival skills are limited and he shows a dangerous carelessness - and is only just saved from a zombie attack by Olivia (Dana Kippel), who takes him under her wing, teaches him a thing or two about survival, and tells him about the fabled Cove, where the healthy live without fear of being attacked, and how much she wants to get there - only problem, she doesn't know where the Cove is. Eventually, Cairo and Olivia run into Luther (Mike Markoff) and his gang of marauders, who clearly want to have their way with Olivia but kill her when she doesn't put out. Cairo is only just saved by Solomon (Robert Enriquez), an ex-cop, who together with his friend Samuel (Phillip Cook) still patrol the harbour, even if law and order have long been abandoned by everybody else. Cairo begs Solomon to take him on, because he has by now realized he hasn't got what it takes to survive, but Solomon refuses, as he doesn't want another mouth to feed - but he gets Cairo abode with Samuel. Now Solomon knows where the Cove is, but is hesitant to go there as he'd run into his estranged daughter (Elisa Janelle Alpizar). He has a change of heart though when Luther and gang kill Samuel, and he even agrees to let Cairo tag along. What he doesn't know though, Luther has only spared Cairo's life so he can spy on Solomon and get the location of the Cove out of him, to then kill him. So Solomon's big heart might actually be his downfall ...


A nice piece of post-apocalyptic cinema that doesn't so much focus on spectacle (even if it does have its violent bits) but more on the melancholic side of things, and thus is carried by a moody directorial effort that makes the most of its unusual main location, a desolate marina, while the cast fittingly doesn't (visually) fit the classic image of heroism. And exactly this rather unusual approach makes Escape to the Cove a good watch indeed.
