ALive (2022)

Low key English zombie film has a young woman and her brother trying to survive during the outbreak of a mysterious disease which turns out is really a zombie plague.

Running closer to films like Schwarzenegger’s MAGGIE, or Sabu’s MISS ZOMBIE, ALIVE is all about the people. Yes the film has some violence, however it is not full of blood and guts and gore. Also while the film has suspense , it really isn’t a full on horror film since it focuses on how the characters interact and the terrible things people do more than the zombies. It’s more a thriller with horror overtones.

I liked ALIVE. In an age where 95% of the zombie films are all riffs on the same handful of plots over and again, it’s nice to see a film that goes in another direction.

Worth a look.
