Someone finally decided to make a zombie movie! It’s about damn time! All kidding aside, director Manuel Carballo’s genre effort “The Returned” doesn’t look half bad. And this is coming from someone who simply refuses to watch most zombie movies these days. I just can’t do it. I draw the line at “The Walking Dead,” and I’m even having trouble making it through season four due to zombie burn out. But, I digress.
Manuel Carballo is a solid director, though I wasn’t completely enthralled with his most recent effort “Exorcismus.” Although the flick had style to spare, the story was a little weak for my taste. However, “The Returned” looks pretty good. Horror fans and adventurous viewers can expect the flick to drop in the United States early next year.
As always, a synopsis:
Kate works at the hospital in the Return Unit, helping those who have been infected by the virus that turns people into zombies. Kate’s dedication to her work is absolute, but few people realize that for her it is also a personal matter; Kate’s own husband, Alex, has been returned.
After various brutal and prolific attacks at the hands of Anti-Return groups and rumors that the “Protein” stock is running dangerously low, Kate fears for Alex´s safety. Suspicious of the government’s order that all the returned should report to a secure medical facility ‘for their own safety’, the couple decides to flee, taking with them all the doses of “Return Protein” they have. At no point does the couple imagine that the real threat is a lot closer than they think…
“The Returned” stars Emily Hampshire, Kris Holden-Ried, Shawn Doyle, and Claudia Bassols. The flick arrives in the US on February 14, 2014. Check out a trailer and a new poster below.
