Exit Humanity Zombie Flick
Being a zombie novelist (who isn’t these days, right!) I tend to watch a lot of zombie cinema. Most of it is a good example of what not to do. However I just watched a new zombie film, Exit Humanity, that is the exception to that rule.
Exit Humanity is set in the years just after the Civil War where Confederate Rebel Edward young returns home to find things a little on the undead side at home.
The bad (lets get it out of the way)
Brian Cox is top-billed in the film, although he is only the unseen narrator. The uniforms look too ‘fresh from the costume shop’ (and made of Gaberdene) for my tastes. The general is cliche and the lever-action 92 series rifles and Colt peacemakers are about 10-30 years too early for the film.
Its a very well done piece of zombie horrror that stays with the watcher long after you see it. Its a refreshing look at an old-school could have been. In the end its haunting and visually well-done. Ive seen much higher budget zombie flicks that don’t tell a story 1% as good as this one.
Better yet, if you have Netflix its availible online for free!
