Another Irish horror movie this one is about the survivors of a virus that turns people into zombies. A few are still infected and they get locked up. Fast-paced and confusing it's based on older Romero movies like Day of the Dead and The crazies. This plague seems to have wiped out our non-nationals because the only survivors are indigenous Irish mostly in their 30s! They're all based around Croke Park in Dublin! Lots of brief scares and tension with loud effects but you won't care what happens as the characters are not likable. Completely unoriginal yet well made; that's Irish cinema in a nutshell. Compared with Dead meat and Boy eats girl this a is minor masterpiece!

Rather sad article in today's Irish Independent newspaper about Ireland's most overrated female film director. She's been abroad...
