Tries a few weird concepts with the zombies being used for gas and a subplot about scientific experiments, but everything is only a surface level of paint that fails to distinguish it from other zombie movies. Though it is obvious they are trying and the result is a ton of fun (though I maybe a bit bias being Australian and all).
A rambunctious zombie film, more akin to the outrageous early films of Peter Jackson in spirit and tone than anything from modern times. The camera work is busy and the editing is top notch, as the rhythm and a sense of spatial clarity are akin more to the films of yesteryear. It's also not bogged down by lengthy expositions or outbreak explanations, as that's more skimmed over. Not more than fun, but still a blast.
While it never dares to defy the conventions of its genre, this Australian zombie splatterflick also proves entertaining for the entirety of its 98 minute duration. The 'Mad Max meets Dawn of the Dead' tagline is wholly misleading as very little of the story unfolds on the open road. Instead, the main draw here is the hyper-kinetic editing and camerawork, which recall fond memories of Peter Jackson's early work.
