In the early part of the 21st Century, an unknown virus began spreading among the populous. Within weeks it had engulfed the entire planet, from the smallest rural communities to the greatest cities. Upon the death of its host, the virus would reanimate the corpse until it was no longer able to support itself. Soon, the planet was infested with a new threat - the undead. So begins our journey into the dystopian world of The Zombie Diaries.
Three compelling video diaries chart the early days of the plague, right through to the last days of the apocalypse:
A documentary film crew travel to the countryside to make a movie about the virus. Unaware of what is happening around the country, the team is accidentally caught up in the outbreak. They later take shelter in a nearby wood, where a much more sinister fate awaits them.
A husband and wife escape London and pick up a mysterious hitchhiker as they scavenge the remnants of dead towns, unaware of the dangers that wait for them in the shadows.
A group of survivors flee to an old farm to seek refuge, only to find themselves under siege from creatures that attack in the dead of night.
Watch the devastation unfold through the eyes of those who were there
Just in case anyone hasnt seen it, I wouldnt bother. It was in my humble opinion one of the worse zombie movies I have seen.
You never felt that the humans were under any threat really, the zombies were the standard slow kind. I spent several scenes laughing, my favourite was when they are scavenging in the supermarket. The makers had a chance here to have a zombie in the market come out of the near dark and give some genuine terror/scare but no he waits until they get out to the car and q the screaming "Ahh zombies at 6 o'clock" camera pans across to about 8 zombies staggering very very slowly towards the car, i reckon at their speed they would take a couple of minutes at least but everyone is panicking, even so they still get clean away.
