Exit Humanity (2011) – An Interesting but Much Too Long Movie
2011’s Exit Humanity is an interesting end of the world Zombie movie with a twist: it takes place just shortly after the American Civil War. The Zombie virus first appears at the end of the war when fallen soldiers start rising from the dead as black Eyed zombies. Skip ahead 6 years and we find our self in the kitchen of Edward Young, his wife dead from his gun after he arrived home to find she too had become one of the undead, and his young son nowhere to be found. After dealing with the remains of his wife, he goes off in search of his son. This trip is one of tragedy, and and quickly turns into a memorial March. Throw in a power mad general and his doctor who believes he can create a serum to fight the infection using human Guinea pigs in a NAZI like manner.
This movie is much better produced than I expected and the acting, while not great, and sometimes not believable, is passable. It’s an interesting look at a Zombie outbreak at an interesting time.
While I did like this movie, it is in desperate need of some serious edition: this movie needs to lose between 30 and 40 minutes for it`s length to match it’s content.
Easily found on Netflix if you’re looking for a fresh telling of a Zombie tale, check out the trailer below:
