The book didn’t translate well into the movie in my honest opinion but the story is still a great one. I’d rate the book a solid A but the movie just didn’t measure up and I’m not sure why exactly. Give it a try if you’re willing, but better yet, pick up the book!
Billions are dead and the few that are left start to realize they are not alone. Initially when the dead begin to rise, they are not very threatening. However, in a short period of time, the lurching bodies begin to get their most basic senses back and this makes them much more dangerous. When the dead become attracted to light and sound, the survivors have no option but to live in silent darkness.
My Rating: B-
Interesting Facts: It was filmed in Toronto and Hamilton, Ontario, Canada; it’s based on the book of the same name by David Moody; and it’s also known by the name ‘Autumn of the Living Dead’.
