Extinction (2015) Review:

Just when I was saying that we didn’t had a great zombie movie this year (Maggie was such a deception)… Extinction comes up and fills the gap!

Directed by Miguel Angel Vivas (Kidnapped), the movie not your usual zombie repetitive action horror, but a great psychological take on the genre instead. The first few minutes of the movies, with red eyes zombies attacking a bus on a background of epic music lead you into thinking that you are watching 28 Days Later all over again. But then the action cuts short and the movie starts all over again with a completely different pace.

They are only three characters in the movie, two adults and a little girl, and the fact that they do not speak to each other despite being neighbours, and the last people on Earth, sets the mystery right from the start. Thereee is a great suspense building up through the movie and I found quite impossible to stop watching.

Not comparing the movie to I Am Legend is very difficult. Aside from the fact that there is three people instead of one, everything else is pretty much similar to the latest, from to the faithful dog down to the bald look of the zombie creatures. Similarly, emotions play a big part in the movie which I, personally, found quite moving.

Overall, Extinction is a movie full of life and hope, and filled with ugly zombies and great survival battles. A must watch this year.
