– (2007) – A man and his dog are the sole survivors of a plague, aside from pissed off mutants. Pretty sluggish overall, and has too many quiet moments interrupted by incredibly loud shrieks. The CGI villains are a joke, and too many advancements toward the end are wholly predictable.
– (2017) – An already dysfunctional office becomes a violent free for all when the staff is infected by a virus that feeds on emotion. Offers a unique spin on a tired infection genre, but still has too many typical areas. Wears thin by the mid-point, and tends to drag as events become more predictable.
– (2001) – Newlyweds honeymoon in an area where a woman is eating people and a doctor who might know why disappeared. Has a deliberately slow pace and never identifies what it’s about, yet manages to hold attention through some grisly and sexually charged moments. An atypical structure further enhances the confusing creepiness.
– (2016) – A father accompanies his daughter to see her mother while a viral outbreak turns humans into bloodthirsty killers. Yet another not-quite-a-zombie yarn that might as well be called 28 Days Later on a Train. Does have some credible character moments and scenarios, but the been-there-done-that vibe turns attempted emotions into schmaltz.
– (2017) – A woman who’s been battling a corporate viral outbreak for many years returns to the epicenter of her problems to end all the madness. Follows the same formula as the previous entries by placing computerized technology over any human traits. A jumbled mess that has no flow, no involvement, and no reassurance that this is actually the end.
– (2015) – Counselors prepping a summer camp pick each other off when becoming infected with a curable virus. Basically moves 28 Days Later into the woods without accomplishing anything noteworthy. Characters are okay at first, but they mostly just end up screaming. Not the hardest to get though, and does have a pretty surprising conclusion.
– (2016) – Friends renting a cabin become infected with a skin eating disease. Does invent one of the most vicious murders ever committed to film, but such surprises are in short supply as too much of this copies the original. Well made, and has a good score, but keeps much of the original’s nonsensical corn and doesn’t have a reason for existing.
