Year of Release: 2013

Genre: Horror

Related to/Remake of: N/A

Directed By: Marc Forster

Music By: Marco Beltrami

Starring: Brad Pitt (as Gerry Lane),

Basic Plot: A retired UN investigator tries to find a cure to what is causing the general population to turn in to raving, flesh-eating zombies.

Rating (Out of 4): 3

Pros: A surprisingly effective, non-bloody zombie film with plenty of genuine scares.

Cons: Hardcore horror fans may have a problem with the lack of blood and gore due to the film’s PG-13 rating.  This movie features the fast moving zombies that have become more popular today, which may frustrate “purists”.  The plot deviates a lot from its source material, which consisted of interviews with those who had survived the zombie outbreak.
