Director, writer and actor Jeremy Gardner delivers a break out zombie film that isn’t heavily reliant on zombie action set ups but captures character and atmosphere.

Where as many low budget zombie films have poor execution or find it hard to meet expectations, trying to be bigger than they are or come across pretentious The Battery knows it’s limits and is self aware. It’s a finely constructed, mesmerising, humanistic zombie road trip.

You care about the characters and follow them on their journey, it’s not dialogue driven but what there is, is humorous, heartfelt and rings true.

Overall, does what it says on the tin delivering a snap shot of two everyday guys surviving during a zombie apocalypse.
