3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Perspective On TEOTWAWKI January 8, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I was left with asking to the very end, what caused things to collapse? After the first 5 minutes I wanted to shoot the wife myself. The family definitely came off in the beginning of the movie as typical big city liberal-leaning family that has lost everything and is waiting for the government or an NGO to save them. Later in the movie the father turns out to be an experienced woodsman, born in the backwoods. But he didn't own a firearm? I looked at this movie as an idea of what would happen to sheeple if TEOTWAWKI would happen. As for the story I am still wondering what it actually was. The whole thing seemed like it was made as a trailer for a bigger movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars Low-Budget, End-of-the-World Thriller June 3, 2012
Format:DVD
"The Collapsed" is an apocalypic thriller about one family's battle to stay alive on a trek through a landscape of barbarism and cannibalism. In the wake of an unspecified event that has catapulted civilization into a fatal downward spiral, the Weaver family -- father Scott (John Fantasia), young adult son Aaron (Steve Vieira), mother Emily (Lise Moule), and teenage daughter Rebecca (Anna Ross) -- desperately tries to survive. Fleeing the city, the family hopes to find sanctuary in a rural hometown from their past, Dover's Bend.

With the constant threat of violent death forcing them to stay as far from other people as possible, they take to the forest. However, they soon discover that the danger posed by other survivors may be the least of their worries. Someone -- or something -- seems to have followed them into the wilderness.

Though the premise sounds like that of cable TV's "The Walking Dead," "The Collapsed" preceded the AMC miniseries. Director Justin McConnell knows how to put together a horror film; he's excellent at creating and building suspense and incorporating plenty of shock moments along the way. He also spends time letting us get to know the Weavers as individuals so that we feel a stake in what happens to them.

End-of-the-world movies have proliferated lately, but "The Collapsed" stands out. Though it was made on a low budget with unknown actors, the script and execution are solid. DVD special features include audio commentary by writer/director McConnell, music video, photo gallery, cast and crew bios, and a making-of documentary.

4.0 out of 5 stars Collapsed society December 20, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
As far as entertainment is concerend it was and interesting take on what could happen, but also very dark in content. I prefer movies where at least the good guy looks toward a future at the end of the movie. I did not feel that the story heald out any hope for the furture but was the view of the writer and director who wanted to impose their personal take of whatit would be like with out looking at the big picture. As far as syfy is concerend it could fit in the Horror genra. If you like to see lots of killing and want a sense of hopless ness then this is your movie.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not that Scary `End of the World' story March 21, 2013
Format:DVD
This is an American independent, end of the world, psychological type horror. It is based around a family of four, they are in the big city and an `event' has happened that seems to make everyone uber violent. They know their only hope is to get away and head out of town to find the other son. The father Scott Weaver (John Fantasia) leads his wife, daughter and son away from the pestilent city and head off in a stolen car to the comparative safety of the country-side.

But you know they are going to encounter other `humans' at some point and things are never going to go well. This features lots of camera angles with weird breathing which is there to evoke fear in the viewer and to make us think that bad things are going to happen. Whilst the father does have graphic night mares in the build up to `the twist', it is unlikely that the on screen antics will have the same effect on you.

The acting is not Academy nominee grade, but there are some convincing performances. We have the usual stupid decisions that happen in all films of this genre, the sort that nearly always lead to a demise of the miscreant or increased tension. This does work in part, and the family become more begrimed as they get further away from civilisation, which is a nice nod to realism.

Overall though this is not that entertaining, it drags in the middle and the action is sporadic at best, the saving grace is the kick in the tail and that was actually the only thing that pulled this back from a lower rating than I have awarded. If you like all things `horror', then this will never be on your `A' list, but you still may want to see, if you only want a quality fright-fest, then best to not bother.

2.0 out of 5 stars THAT'S MY BLANKET! October 4, 2012
Format:DVD
This was a well made low budget film that I didn't like. Civilization has suddenly collapsed for some unexplained reason as people distrust and kill each other ("Yellow Brick Road"). A family of four decide to leave the city for Dover's Bend, their old home town. That is pretty much it.

Along the way they encounter other people and a hear weird noises and feel spooked out. The mystery, which you may not realize there is one, is solved at the end.

The acting was decent for a low budget. The writing and direction were also better than normal, it just that there wasn't anything there to enjoy. They didn't build character well. The "twist" was not unexpected. For seasoned film watchers this is a let down. People who don't watch a lot of horror films might find some enjoyment in it.

Parental Guide: F-bomb, no sex, no nudity.
