With me, RUN!

A complete Cliché, and an entertaining one at that
Great camera work. Great set work. Great acting. The story is every
cliché from the hard starting engine, the kooky locals, the 4 teenagers
in the car hearing a noise outside, on up. But I think if we are honest
with ourselves… it is what we want from a horror movie. The cliché
haunted house…. the dark woods.
But the zombie kids… they are about as creepy as a bunch of french
mimes. Ignore the fact that they look like school children in their
Sunday best and not mine digging zombies, enjoy the atmosphere, watch
it in the dark, and it is definitely worthwhile.
But don't look for any originality here. I mean none.
