    Two former baseball players, Ben (Jeremy Gardner) and Mickey (Adam Cronheim), cut an aimless path across a desolate New England. They stick to the back roads and forests to steer clear of the shambling corpses that patrol the once bustling cities and towns. In order to survive, they must overcome the stark differences in each other’s personalities: Ben embraces an increasingly feral, lawless, and nomadic lifestyle, while Mickey is unable to accept the harsh realities of the new world. Mickey refuses to engage in Ben’s violent games and longs for the creature comforts he once took for granted: a bed, a girl and a safe place to live. When the men intercept a radio transmission from a seemingly thriving, protected community, Mickey will stop at nothing to find it, even though it is made perfectly clear that he is not welcome.

    Two guys are hanging out together after the zombie apocalypse has occurred.
    Jeffrey Getzin
    It proves yet again that you don't need a lot of money to make a good movie, just a solid script and determination.
    Jacob Gustafson
    For a very low budget they really made a great movie and the music was so good.

    The Battery is about two guys trying to survive the zombie apocalypse. But wait! Before you shake your head and go back to looking a naughty pictures of people doing naughty things, let me stress that this film is damn fine. The film is essentially a road film/buddy flick that probably could have taken place sans zombies. The zombies are there and are definitely a threat but the film is much more about the relationship between the guys and their individual relationships with their surroundings. It's not scary per se, though there are definitely horrific moments sprinkled throughout. Gorehounds will be sorely disappointed here as well. The film doesn't have much of the red stuff. So, it's not scary and it's not gory which should mean it should be terrible right? On paper it sounds cliche and dull. But the film itself is very compelling. Their surroundings are captured beautifully giving the film a strong sense of place. It's not a generic suburb or faceless city but a beautiful countryside filled with forests, streams, and isolated homes. The soundtrack also helps build the sense of place with jangly guitars, soulfully played. The gorgeous compositions mixed with perfect music build this humble film into something truly worth seeing. The film honestly feels like "post-horror" if I may be so bold. It's arty without being pretentious, thoughtful without being too intellectual.

    The zombies are slow moving with no wall climbing spider zombies being present. They're threatening but only in large numbers. The two main characters travel along the countryside, never staying in one place too long so that they never become surrounded by zombies. One of the men is totally acclimated to the wandering lifestyle, the other hungers for community.

    This movie blew me away. Not with its special effects, or its world with tons of backstory, because those details are light at best in this movie. No this movie is about two guys who could actually exist. Two guys that have been driven to two completely opposite ends of coping with a world that is no longer what they have grown up to expect. Mickey and Ben were like any of my friends, and all of them, I cared about them, and you will too if you invest in the time to watch this movie. For being made for 6 thousand dollars, this is by far the best zombie movie I have seen. Awesome stuff.

    This movie is great. I believe it had a budget of $6,000 but you wouldn't guess it. This movie is complete proof that a good story and good acting make a movie, NOT hundreds of millions of dollars in CGI/marketing. I will recommend this movie to all of my friends. It does start out slow, DO NOT give up on it. It gets much much better as it goes along. The first third of the movie is introducing the characters and their personalities, the second third is about them continuing their survival, and the final third of the movie is just unbelievably amazing. I won't spoil it. I can see now why it received rave reviews at various movie festivals. If you are a fan of the zombie genre, you need to watch this movie PERIOD

    Let me start by saying to all the people that gave this a 1-2 star rating WAKE UP! the zombie genre has been done to DEATH , so when an fresh new attempt at it comes across to others and they like it just means we have no blinders on our eyes .Take Pontypool.This movie about zombies on a language point of view was brilliant and intense , same goes for this movie low budget and just brilliant in its motivations of doing the hole zombie thing but making it their own take on it . Zombie genre / behind the camera genre they have been done to death but there are next levels of fun to these genres . thanks for reading ..Enjoy .😊

    I've seen a lot of micro budget horror movies, many of them involving zombies (a trendy subject right now). Netflix has got countless of them on their streaming service, old and new. The vast majority of them are awful, nearly unwatchable to even a diehard horror lover like myself, but when you finally find one of these made on a shoestring, shot in their backyard indie movies that is good, it makes it all worthwhile. If you're looking for a lot of zombie mayhem, you won't find it here. This is a character driven movie, focusing on the relationship of a couple of guys who were just friendly acquaintances before the outbreak but now have to deal with being stuck with each other every day of their lives as well as with the flesh hungry living dead.

    It's something most of those other indie horror movie makers probably don't have the writing chops to pull off, so they give us Romero imitations with weak special affects. When there is violence, it tends to happen off camera. I'm guessing Gardner and his crew would have liked to include a little more action, but just didn't have the special affects budget to show you zombies getting their skulls crushed in convincingly. Personally I didn't miss it too much. There are plenty of horror films in which you can get your fill of that kind of thing. It's much rarer to find one that is this smart and well made. It's not just the writing that's a cut above what I've come to expect from these kinds of movies, but the cinematography, the acting, the make up (keep in mind this thing obviously had a very low budget). A lot of it was shot with a handheld, but they wisely resist the temptation to try to impress us with a lot of those Saving Private Ryan-esque shaky cam shots.
