Zombie Man the Journey to Hell

Zombie Man the Journey to Hell is a short film that follows a survivor of the apocalypse and subsequent nuclear tactics used to try to stop the dead.

The Good:
It’s short.

The Bad:
The opening monologue is one of the worst delivered monologues I’ve ever heard. It sounds like a high school kid putting on a tough voice he never really commits to or goes all the way with. He also makes grammatical errors that make him sound like he doesn’t really know how to speak English very well.

“The things that are happening changes a man” should be change, not changes.
“I can’t have no mercy for the dead” should be “I can’t have ANY mercy for the dead.
“It (the virus) spread so fast no one expected it.

The Ugly:
The movie tries to use slick music and filters along with a bit of news footage to make it seem grittier than it actually is. We see a woman sort of limping or falling and stumbling away from some pretty mediocre zombies slowly approaching from behind. It feels more like the steam roller gag in Austin Powers.

Finally, after stumbling over an open patch of dirt with nothing to trip on or hills to fall down she just gets up and runs off. Sorry, why was she stumbling? I get that she’s hurt but if she could just get up and run away there’s no reason for the botched stumbling bit.

In the end there really is no substance or story at all. It seems like it was made just to show off some guys survival gear collection and bike.
