I give this movie 3 stars. Not because I liked it or because I disliked it or because I felt it was average. I give it this rating because to me 3 stars is the dividing point between a bad rating and a good rating. Due to my uncertainity as to what I just watched I am unable to determine if I liked this movie or disliked this movie.
This is not a horror movie. Yes it has a zombie or undead girl or re-animated dead body but there is no element of horror to this movie. (Although I could understand some people labeling this movie as creepy. Not creepy in a horror sense but in an 'icky' sense.) I do not consider this to be a 'coming of age' movie. If the movie had a message, I'm not at all certain what the message was.
Highlights: The acting of most of the cast was above average as was the dialogue, production and directing. Lowlights: the 'holes' or non-explanation of so much that happens in the movie. I want to say that this movie is a bit slow paced. However being as I'm uncertain what it was I watched, this may be an unfair statement. I don't mind a slow paced movie if I understand the point. Maybe I missed the point the movie was trying to make.
Besides being 'uncertain', how do I feel about the movie? I want to like the movie. Maybe if I understood the point of the movie or if the movie had some explanations for the holes in the plot (how the girl died, who tied her dead body up to a couple of trees after it re-animated, why she re-animated, etc. etc.) I would be able to say I liked the movie. As it is, all I can say is that I feel like I wasted my time watching this movie. I find it frustrating that I can't decide how I feel about this movie.Read more ›
The first time I saw the movie was in July 2009 at a relatively private screening hosted by some of the Filmmakers themselves. I was exhausted by a month's worth of work and had very little rest that day, so when I watched the movie, I didn't really watch it. I nodded off, just stared into space, stuff of that nature. Not really discerning at all, I know. Which is probably why, after much peer pressure from the surrounding Art-House audience, I subsequently described the film as one of the most underrated I'd seen. I convinced myself that it was great to the point that I was literally dying to see it a second time.
Skip ahead to the film's Home Video release and my first-ever order off Amazon. I watched the film alone this time, without the Art-House audience and without the personal exhaustion. I was fully discerning this time around. My reaction, to say the least, was somewhat drastically different. It was now one of the most overrated and pretentious films I'd ever seen. Maybe a result of disappointment, but pretty much, I now hated the movie.
Skip ahead to yesterday. I still have the Blu Ray, so I decided to stick it in and give it another go, thinking I was maybe too harsh on the film given how much I loved it originally. My feelings have changed, but not so much to the point that I'd call the film anything good. With my best hopes at being as discerning as possible, here is why: Brave concept, but a failure at execution.Read more ›

I was trying to give this movie a chance. For zombie films, it was pretty bad. I mean, sure Wendy standing up at the beginning of the movie was pretty cool... Read morePublished on December 24, 2011 by Valverde
