Top Customer Reviews
1) The main characters wore cartridge gas masks ineffective against airborne viruses. They are extremely uncomfortable and you never drink through them.
2) Some zombies are fast moving, while others had the gout.
3) Most zombies had no make-up. Others wore cheap masks, which looked extremely fake and really having nothing to do with zombies.
4) One female (and a zombie at that) in the whole movie. This isn't a prison film.
5) Rapid fire machine gun special effects consisted of a strobe light and a guy beating on a bucket to make gun sounds. The lights and sound didn't match up too well. The movie would have been better if they showed a man with a strobe trying to beat a bucket to the rhythm of the light.
6.) Big special effect scene was when they ran over a rubber mask filled with mayonnaise that squirted out the eye socket. They showed it twice, must have been the big budget item.
7.) The main characters wore masks nearly the whole movie. They were all about the same size, had the same accent, and wore the same clothes. How the heck was I to figure out which one was talking?
On top of that it was boring. Guys running around in gas masks shooting guys with rubber masks. I would cut my arm off before I would watch this film again, it is just that good.
If you think though, making an avant-garde zombie movie is necessarily a silly idea, well it is not, as this film is in parts incredibly moody and intense - despite its low production values - and many scenes you have seen way too often in other zombie flicks seem fresh again. That all said, the film's unfortunately less than perfect: With a running time of two and a half hours, it's way too long for its rather feeble narrative, and the fact that all characters wear gasmasks makes it incredibly difficult to follow the plot as such let alone create sympathy for the characters.
Still, The Veil is worth a look, to say the very least.
