Northern England’s best zombie flick since 1974’s The Living Dead At Manchester Morgue

Northern England’s best - and perhaps only - zombie flick since 1974’s The Living Dead At Manchester Morgue, this striking low-budget horror-drama features first-time filmmakers playing smartly to their strengths.

Directed by Dominic Brunt (Paddy from Emmerdale), who stars alongside wife Joanne Mitchell, it’s the intimate tale of a couple on a make-or-break country getaway unaware of the apocalypse unfurling around them.

Although the attack sequences are (understandably) sub-28 Days Later, what emerges is a surprisingly poignant study of a marriage in meltdown as the world mutely follows suit.
