Remains (2011)
An accident turns the world’s population into flesh-eating zombies, meanwhile a handful of the survivors holdup in a small, seedy casino.
Remains (based on ‘Steve Niles’ graphic novel) has an interesting concept and some nice ideas including sleeping zombies. The backstreet lower end of Vegas setting add a visual, uneasy feel and the closing act and last thirty seconds stop it going to the grave.
This budgeted post-apocalyptic flick is commendably filmed by Colin Theys and is better than most productions of its kind, that said, it sadly falls short on delivery with pacing issues and uneven effects. In addition, it simply lacks the tension it should have due to inconsistencies across the whole offering.
Nevertheless, Remains is worth viewing if only out of interest and for the delightful and talented Evalena Marie.
