The earth, circa 2039, has been turned into a dire place: Humanity has dwindled down in numbers since a bioterrorist attack has turned most of the populace into flesh-eating zombies, and those who have survived have not yet managed to regroup and start a counter attack - but there is also occasional beauty in the miserable state our world is in, like the relationship of Penelope (Sara Gorsky) and Josh (Cole Simon), who have been wondering the countryside together for years now, and they're still in love like they were on the first day, and even if Penelope has suffered from one miscarriage after another (contraceptives are rare in the post-apocalyptic world), he has never left her, no matter what a burden she might have been, and has protected her in times of need (though she also has saved his life more than once). So even if the world's a living Hell, it seems as long as they've got one another, there's nothing that can hurt them ...

Enter Abira (Tanya Thai McBride), another survivor of the zombie outbreak who has just lost her companion, and out of compassion, and despite Penelope's reservations (which might be rooted in jealousy more than anything else), Josh offers her to join them - and in return she offers them to lead them to a safe haven, a group strong enough to take on any number of zombies ...

The threesome's journey to the safe haven is anything but worry-free though, as the zombies seem to attack more ferociously than Josh and Penelope have ever witnessed - and finally at the "safe haven", they have to realize that everybody from Abira's group is dead, and Abira herself has been bitten by a zombie but hasn't been turned - but now seems to lure zombies to wherever she goes ... so either Penelope and Josh leave Abira behind to her certain death, or stay with her to risk EVERYTHING - there is no third choice ...

 

Zombie films these days are of course a dime a dozen, but Battle Apocalypse does find a new approach to the genre: rather than being another shoot-them-up, violent adventure or dystopian soap opera (all of which have heir virtues as well as classics), this is actually a love story - but a true and honest one, and not of the sappy kind. But while the mere mention of "love story" might scare some hardcore horror fans away, it ought not, the film is still violent where it ought to be, plenty disgusting every now and again, and there aren't many feel-good moments in this one - and dang, despite all the romance permeating the film, it is also really tense thanks to a tight directorial effort, great locations and a really good cast.

Totally worth watching!
