Editorial Reviews

"Better than Danny Boyle's 28 Days Later" (beyondhollywood.com), The Zombie Diaries has been hailed as "the most realistic zombie film ever made" (twitchfilm.net). Set in England during a world-wide viral infection, this documentary-style frightfest records the rise of the undead from the videocams of several survivor groups. As each struggles against the flesh-eating hordes, an even more horrifying fate lurks among them. "Dark, uncompromising and frighteningly real" (eatmybrains.com), The Zombie Diaries is smart horror at its bloody best.

3.0 out of 5 stars Dear Diary; EERRRGGHH! September 28, 2009
Format:DVD
I probably don't have to tell you that this independent horror film isn't about zombies writing in their diaries. However, I should point out that the cover art has little to do with anything that happens in the film. In such a case you might conclude that this film is a complete waste of time since most DVD cases with exceptionally enticing and irritatingly deceptive cover art are stinkers. In this case that's not so clear. It depends on what you're looking for. As usual, I'll have to chew this into smaller pieces.

-OH GOD NO!! NOT THE HANDI-CAM AGAIN!!!
That's right. This English film is shot using hand-held video cameras much like "Blair Witch" and "Clover Field". Unlike those films, the cameras are handled with some competence. Though I did get a bit sea sick at moments, overall it was tolerable. Other than the adept use of the cameras there was nothing original about this idea. Strangely and mistakenly, there is some very tight in-camera editing while nobody is holding it.

-PLEASE GET ON WITH IT
The actors do about as well as you'd expect from a low budget independent horror film. However, they often aren't given much to do but drive around, rummage through abandoned buildings and look for resources. We get to know them to a certain degree and they all act fairly natural most of the time. Though probably a realistic approach, it hardly makes for compelling viewing. This film really does take its time getting to the zombie part of the diary.

-PLAUSABILITY TAKES A HOLIDAY.
Aside from the whole idea of zombies, there are problems with plausibility in "Zombie Diaries".

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your time. February 21, 2010
Format:DVD
As the wife of a huge fan of zombies in any genre and a horror fan herself, we were both severely disappointed by this movie. The acting is completely absent, I've seen better delivery by kindergartners. The plot made little to no sense and the special effects would only pass muster at a church spook trail at night. One scene that included "brains" on the ground had us both wondering, "Was that canned cherries?"

There is a huge bounce in the timeline that made no sense, three groups of characters that made you cheer for the zombies, and a setting that was bland and uninteresting. You lose characters who they go back to at the end for no apparent reason. A lot of "What?" moments throughout. The writing lacked a basic knowledge of what people would do in a situation like this, going from one extreme to the other.

I'm am just very glad that we did not pay much for this movie. It makes "Diary of the Dead" look like it should be an Oscar winner. I would greatly encourage you not to bother with this wanna be zombie movie. As a person that has no experience making a movie, I could do better with a $500 budget and a camcorder.

1.0 out of 5 stars Worse than Cloverfield September 17, 2010
By Peter
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Don't believe the boxart! Cover, back and disc art are NOT of the film at all, neither characters or scenes. Another awful, shaky camera runabout by idiots with better things to be doing than hauling cameras around and staring down into them while spouting whiny diatribes at the hapless viewer.

It takes effort to make Blair Witch and Cloverfield look acceptable and Zombie Diaries goes the extra mile to do so. The film is even cut up into chapters and pieces of chapters of wholy unrelated groups of unlikable whiners, skipping between them all forward and back in time. It's not just trashy film, it's trashy, incoherent film.

Don't expect any happy endings here either. It also takes the tiresomely well trodden path where armed, psycho humans are the bigger villains of the piece. I came to this for some zombie vs survivor action and Zombie Diaries dissappoints on every level. There's very little combat and what little you get has pitifully humble effects. The acting could be worse, but that's not really a compliment either. You won't sympathize with any of the characters, most of whom you can't even name, but you might feel sorry for some of the actors in it.

Do yourself a favor and get World War Z in hard back or audio CD format if you want some quality zombie apocolypse life stories instead of the this no-budget spineless whine fest.

2.0 out of 5 stars ................ WTF!!!! September 24, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This movie is nothing like the cover, it follows a number different groups of people during a zombie outbreak. This is why I hate Zombie moives with SLOW ASS ZOMBIES!!!!!!!!! A bunch of girls screaming for no reason when they can easily out run the zombies. Theres a scene with some survivors, and they go into town to get supplies or whatever, and they see a few zombies walking towards them, WALKING! Then they start panicing trying to get all the stuff into the car.................. Look, this movie is going to have you questioning a lot of S**t, rather than finding someway to enjoy this film. I gave the movie 2 stars instead of 1 because the idea and the plot was there but it just wasnt executed in the right way. If the Zombies ran, I wouldnt care about the make-up of the zombies and I wouldnt care about the acting......... That much. Waste you time if want!
