I’m gonna wait until I see Aftermath to really weigh in here, but I’m sort of tired of the whole “it’s the apocalypse so everyone is terrible to each other” subgenre. Xavier Gens’ The Divide squandered his considerable directorial talents on tepid squabbling, and “The Walking Dead” is inertia personified.
That being said, I’m holding out hope for Peter Engert’s film starring Edward Furlong, Monica Keena, Andre Royo and C.J. Thomason. There’s always a chance it could turn out worthwhile if they lighten the mood a bit.
“When the devastating horror of a nuclear apocalypse becomes a reality, nine strangers find themselves holed up together in a farmhouse cellar. These would-be survivors are faced with dwindling supplies, radioactive air and the greatest threat of all – the hordes of zombie-like refugees who want in.”
RLJ/Image Entertainment is to release later this year. Check out the new stills and poster below.
