First things first, WOW.
Ok so this film is predictable, but if you're after a good old fashioned horror movie then this will do nicely. It's fantastically jumpy, gory (but not too gory it makes you want to vom), and keeps you on the edge of the seat the whole way through. At one point, i jumped so far i had my legs in the air.
The story is about a virus which causes the residents of a sleepy town in Ohio to go crazy, and i'm not just talking a little bonkers, i mean full on stab-you-in-your-sleep mental. Which will also keep zombie fans happy, as they do posses zombie like qualities.
The main story line follows the extremely handsome town sheriff and his equally as attractive wife (which just so happens to be the town doctor) as they try to flee the town full of crazies, which isn't so easy when what appears to be the army (but i'm not entirely sure) are trying to stop them, i wont spoil it, but this film definitely makes you lose faith (once more) in the Government. Even if it is a fictional tale.
This makes a wonderful change from the usual 'horror' films we get these days, which is usually a bunch of gruesome scenes designed to make the audience pass out. (Im talking about you saw 87 or whatever number you're on now...)
A bloody good 7/10 from me.
