Zombie movies are about a dime a dozen now-a-days. Yep, with the success of The Walking Dead, they’re back, the low budget zombie attack! But, while you end up watching dozens of no-brain-required zombie flicks, you do, once in a while, come across a wonderfully original take on the genre. Well, that’s what you get when you grab a copy of The Eschatrilogy!
The world has been overrun by zombies and, in a remote hilltop camp, one man is surviving. When a man stumbles into his camp one day and collapses, he’s chained up and searched. He has a book in his pack, a book that tells several tales of the collapse of mankind. Each story is told here, and each is great! It all begins with a pair of guys on the way to the bar who meet their doom on a lonely moor, then there’s the family man who thinks he’s helping a crash victim, only to be dragged into a zombie attack, there’s the young man who’s trying to get to his family after the onslaught begins and, finally, there’s the father who’s trying to find a way to save his son from the terror. Each is bordered by our remote camper reading their story…and, in the end, you not only see what’s been going on, but writer/director Damian Morter tells us how and why this zombie outbreak happened…and it’s terrific!!!
If I tell you too much about The Eschatrilogy, it’ll ruin this fantastic movie for you! Suffice it to say, this is a zombie movie of a different caliber, and one that deserves to be seen by a wider audience! There were times when I felt like I might be watching a Fulci or Romero movie…which, in zombie terms, is a very high compliment! I’m giving The Eschatrilogy 4 out of 4 cigars, it take the zombie genre and adds a dimension that really needed to be added! Find out more by heading over to http://www.safehousepicturesuk.com.
