2.0 out of 5 stars I've been waiting for this movie for so long... April 15, 2010
Format:DVD
Autumn (Steven Rumbelow, 2009)

It should be noted, first, that while David Moody's Autumn quartet has become a self-publishing success story (including netting Moody a publishing contract with St. Martin's, who are slowly re-releasing all his stuff) and singlehandedly sparked an explosion in small-press zombie literature, the books themselves aren't all that great. Yes, they're loads of fun, retool (if not reimagine) the zombie paradigm nicely, and ask a lot of interesting questions in a meta sort of way. But they're not terribly well-written. Still, great movies have been made from mediocre books (think The Silence of the Lambs here). So I held out some small hope that Steven Rumbelow would take the first book in the series and turn it into some sort of minor masterpiece. More fool me.

Autumn is the story of a small group of survivors who are left behind by some sort of fast-acting plague that wipes out billions of people in the space of a few heartbeats. While the novel focuses on one band that gets together in a school building and then splits off into different groups, the movie, after paying token lip service to the school bit (five minutes or thereabouts, it's a much larger portion of the book), focuses on one splinter group from the original mass: Michael (Kick-Ass' Dexter Fletcher), Emma (Lana Kamenov in her first screen appearance), and Carl (British TV character actor Dickon Tolson; American audiences may remember him from a recurring role on the sitcom Growing Pains). There's tension in the group, as there was in the larger group, and it gets worse when the billions of corpses struck down by the disease get up and start walking around...

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply excellent of its type. March 31, 2010
Format:DVD
The one-star-giving reviewer, Melody, is not wrong that there is not much action in "Autumn," and if your main reason for wanting the DVD is because you're a David Carradine fan, don't bother--he has a tiny, pointless cameo.

BUT. If you're a fan of whip-smart zombie movies (although the word is never used, come on, they're freaking zombies already, not "meatcoats"), like 28 Days Later (Widescreen Edition)and Pontypool, and you have more patience for nuance and sophistication than our young reviewer friend did, then "Autumn" is extremely rewarding.

It's light on the scares and heavy on horror...the emotional, psychological horror of death and of the dead. The way the dead start off inanimate, immobilized (as the dead should be) and gradually, gradually gain the characteristics of the zombies we know from the Romero oeuvre and his imitators is the masterstroke of the film, allowing tension to ratchet up slowly. And for a low budget film, "Autumn" boasts some exquisite camera work that only fleetingly becomes so creative as to be annoying.

Now don't misunderstand: "Autumn" is not "Citizen Cane." It is a ZOMBIE movie, at its heart. But even though it has many of the elements familiar to the genre, the approach is fresh, and the emphasis on psychology rather than mere viscera elevates "Autumn" well beyond what the genre usually produces.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great Material, Poor Editing September 30, 2010
By Rich
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
First off, I really enjoyed Moody's Autumn novels. He did a nifty job of focusing on the people and their reactions to the crumbling world around them.

The film, well, could have been much better for the budget. I'll not blame the awful DVD transfer on the filmmakers though! Really horrible ghosting during dark scenes (quite a few).

The acting was not so great, but totally fine for the budget.

Makeup (zombies): Quite good! Kudos to the FX crew.

Sound: Very good. Nice ominous soundtrack and decent diagetic sound.

Screenplay: A few issues here with the script. The novels were based in Britain, yet the film was shot in Canada, yet most of the actors were British, accents, speech and all! The Emma character was Canadian or American, so it seemed quite off to hear her using British words. Track instead of road, etc...

Editing: OK, here is where we went from 3 stars to 2. Some scenes were really slopped together, or even transposed. For instance, there is a scene with bodies attracted to the sound of the generator at Penn Farm that clearly needed to go BEFORE the scene where Paul, Mike and Emma first venture out into a town to pickup needed supplies to bring back to the farm. The behavior of the bodies is paramount to this story working. Flip flopping these scenes was ham-fisted and paid no service at all to Moody's material.

Another editing note: Was the clown really necessary?

I'd really like to see this done right, but I doubt it will happen unless the re-releases of the novels build some sort of steam... damn shame, really.
