‘The Returned’ Creatures Neither Zombies, Nor Humans.

Their neither zombies, nor humans,” the latest sales art proclaims from Filmax’s The Returned, the latest genre offering from Exorcismus director Manuel Carballo.

Kate works at the hospital in the Return Unit, helping those who have been infected by the virus that turns people into zombies. Kate’s dedication to her work is absolute, but few people realize that for her it is also a personal matter; Kate’s own husband, Jason, has been returned.

After various brutal and prolific attacks at the hands of Anti-Return groups and rumours that the “Protein” stock is running dangerously low, Kate fears for Jason´s safety. Suspicious of the government’s order that all the returned should report to a secure medical facility ‘for their own safety’, the couple decides to flee, taking with them all the doses of “Return Protein” they have. At no point does the couple imagine that the real threat is a lot closer than they think…

Filmax regular Julio Fernandez (REC, Exorcismus, Sleep Tight) produces, too.

    If they’re not human, nor zombies, then what the hell are they? Alien? LOL. I mean, even the “infected” type thing has been done before(28 Days Later). It just sounds like a goofy pitch, considering the description of the movie clearly states that they ARE zombies. And you can only spin the zombie genre so much. Either they aren’t “undead”, they are the infected living(28 Days Later, Crazies), or they are demon possessed(Demons, Night of the Demons, Rec). What, are you going to splice in various ideas together and say, “They are infected, mutant alien demons from the planet of ghosts”, so you can cover the “virus epidemic”, “mutant”, “alien”, “demon” and “supernatural” horror sub-genres in one fell swoop? Might as well toss in torture porn and slashers for good measure. Sorry, I might have rambled. It’s like I was possessed by the Nostalgia Critic.
