Dark, but Entertaining...,
This review is from: Phase 7 (Bloody Disgusting Selects) (DVD)
Phase 7 is a survival/black comedy film. An epidemic has occurred and an apartment building is quarantined until further notice. Consequently, paranoia slowly begins to build and the tenants turn against each other. I really enjoyed Phase 7.
What did I like? The mixture of survival and dark comedy works well in this movie. I laughed plenty of times and it didn't try hard to be funny. The acting was fine, as well, and I really enjoyed the music. I personally thought it was shot very l well; particularly, I enjoyed the scene where they have a shootout at the parking garage and they only have a green glow stick to illuminate their target. By the way, although it may sound similar because of the different summaries floating around, this movie is not similar to [Rec]; they are both in Spanish and take place in apartment buildings, but those are the only similarities, in case you're wondering.
What did I dislike? The pace started to slow down towards the end, which wasn't necessary. Also, Coco and Pipi were annoying at times. Some of it was a little illogical and it doesn't use its characters to the fullest.
Overall, I recommend Phase 7. It's a dark and entertaining film. If you're interested, Phase 7 is available on Netflix Streaming as of 7/24/12.
Phase 7 has strong blood and gore. No sex or nudity.
