yes and less we forget ‘the infected’ which are beautifully
made up and move with a grace that reminded me of how James Cameron
had the Aliens move. Very different from Romeros zombies; rem these
aren’t Zombies? but the infected can move quickly, if a little
randomly and occasionally spurt blood ala The Exorcist. It's not without
a couple of minor flaws but the film is a very good British horror film
– yanks might wonder `why don't they all have guns' or `why is
there no scary build up music to tell us when something is going to
happen' but that is because this is a British film and not Hollywood.
Oh yes better address some of the critcism which forms two distinct
groups: some people thought the ending was actually a little Holywood.
Not so - it makes reasonable sense and for a mainly bleak film - well
a little relief is welcome at the end.
screenplay came in for a few broadsides, mainly to do with continuity
and logic gaps. There are a few I admit - but honestly get over yourselves
- why watch a movie to spot these? I didn't notice them until about
the third watching and they sure didn't spoil it for me. Garland and
Boyle offered us a new horror genre with superb cinematography and a
thoughful script - enjoy that.
