Horror Marathon Day 5

The Battery

Zombie movie meets indie darling.
It's your indie film, like Garden State, with little narrative and plenty of indie rock in the soundtrack set in a zombie world.  Two of my favorite things actually. 

The soundtrack is great, sounds like a little Modest Mouse in there.  Small budget film about these 2 ex-professional baseball players who are trying to make it through the south during this zombie apocalypse. 

There's some good scenes, but it's not purely horror with tons of zombie scenes, so if you are looking for that, then I'd head over to Day of the Dead for that.  There is a point in the movie about half way where you think it's going to go one way and we unlock this world and meet all these new characters and go down the path of this standard adventure-horror story, but nooooo, we do NOT go there and it moves to a less-conventional storyline.  That's the kind of stuff I like, although, I would have liked to learn about X.

The ending is good, a little unexpected.  Over all I liked this.  It's horror, but almost barely qualifies.  Yes there's zombies, but it's so small, indie and personal that we kind forget that in a way.

I say go see it.
