Editorial Reviews

In an unknown future, the earth has been destroyed by man, and the air polluted with a mysterious virus that turns humans into zombies. Only a few children are immune to the disease. Camille, a nine-year-old girl, wanders through these desolated wastelands, protecting herself from zombies and armed military forces that roam the land killing anyone in sight. As she makes her escape to the ocean, deemed a place of safety, she will do whatever it takes to survive and be among other Descendents.

This was just terrible. Just terrible. I usually like everything. Low budget movies aren't always bad but this was. This must have been written by a child. Not just any child but a slow one at that. The kids in this movie just didnt even try. I never wanted kids to die so bad. There's basically no dialogue. Just slow sleepy music and even slower kids going nowhere. Spoiler alert! The ending is just ridiculous. They turn into mermaids! What? For real? And theres a giant octopus! What? Don't waste your money or your time. Please! I beg you don't watch this movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars Liked but ending was lame June 14, 2012
Format:DVD
Like the others said, I went into this with low expectations. Which makes the movie much better. I'm zombie obsessed but that doesn't mean I won't rip apart a bad movie.

I actually liked this movie for the artsy take it took. The black and white. Splashes of color and especially the no need for the gore.

However the ending was horrible and I'm glad I wasn't the only one that thought so. I was tempted to rewatch because I figured I missed something. But obviously from other reviews I did not. The ending just went willy-nilly into it's own wrap up which meant nothing. I wrote more of a post at my new site [...]

"Everyone lost hope and their worst fears became reality." In the future a strange virus takes hold of the world turning everyone into zombies. While the world is being overrun a few children are born immune to the disease. One little girl begins a trip to the ocean where she thinks she will find safety. She meets a few more children like her and together the must avoid the zombies as well as the military to get to their goal. I have to admit that based on the cover and the preview I was expecting lameness. While I can't say this is a great movie it was much better then I expected. I do however think the pitch meeting went like this : So you want to make a zombie movie with very little talking, or plot. Just a little girl walking and watching people get eaten until she finds water. Is that right? Yes that is correct. OK, here is 5 million dollars...have fun. I am not a fan of zombie movies but this one was watchable and much better then I was expecting. The end is bizarre and is worth watching just for that though. Overall, much better then expected and fans of zombie movies will probably like this a lot. I say C+.

1.0 out of 5 stars Zero stars. Biggest waste of my time. May 6, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
If amazon gave refunds because a movie sucked, this would be #1 in line. We went in expecting a zombie flick. What we got was... I don't even know.

It starts off with an interesting premise. People get infected from an airborne virus, and there's a few group of kids that are immune. They use way too many flashbacks to tell a semi-interesting story, while the current time story is ridiculously boring. It's filled with horrible acting, horrible cinematography, horrible graphics, and the worst screenplay ever. Be ready to be put to sleep by a zombie movie....oh and if you're actually awake at the end... the ending is so comical, it'll just blow your mind away... and not in a good way.

so, amazon, when you read this, please refund me my $3.99. Thanks.

2.0 out of 5 stars Rent, eh buy, not. November 18, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This was an oops, saw this before & didn't like it then either. Ok, so the movie had zombies but this story wasn't quite suited for zombies. In my opinion kids & zombies don't play well together on the big screen never mind an entire movie revolving around the two. The syory was predicated upon the children reaching the sea & what a let down that was.

3.0 out of 5 stars So bad, yet I can't bring myself to hate it. November 5, 2013
Format:DVD
Going into this movie, you have to ask yourself if you can look past the the horrible camera filters, shaky cam, bad CG effects, half-assed acting, slow pace, filler in the form of continuous flashbacks of the same scenes over & over again, & a WTF ending to enjoy a unique zombie apocalypse told from a child's perspective, where zombies are passive, & living soldiers are the bad guys. Having already sat through Birdemic, Pot Zombies, The Amazing Bulk, & Pulse 2, I was prepared & hoped for so-bad-it's-good.

The world has gone to hell & no one can expect any kind of basic human rights from those in power. The living scientists & soldiers seem to be a bigger threat to the living than the zombies, tearing apart families & killing indiscriminately. The children are immune, so scientists forcibly separate them from their parents & strap them to chairs, hoping to find a cure, but for unexplained reasons, soldiers are very eager to kill these children without hesitation.

An annoying oddity is that even though the infected mother tells the girl that zombies won't harm the immune, she insists that the girl run away from her & not come near. This scene is the most overplayed flashback, so the mother's break in logic here is really hammered into your head.

In the opening narration, the girl basically tells you how the movie is going to end; it's so absurd that you immediately put it out of your mind until it actually happens, & there is no explanation for for it at all.

In the end, it was terrible, but you should still see it once if you enjoy a good train wreck. I think with a higher budget, more experienced cast, some rewriting, & a different ending, this could be remade into a decent movie.

3.0 out of 5 stars impressive cgi strange movie. 3 stars on a low budget scale.
It's easy to rate this a two or one star affair. Lets be honest most very low budget horror movies are one or two star at most compared to most other flicks. Read more
