The Year After Infection Review

“The Year after Infection” is a heavily character-driven film asking us to take a look at what life might be like after the zombie apocalypse. The movie is broken out into four different stories cleverly titled, “Spring”, “Summer”, “Fall” and “Winter”. The first story centers on a woman who is surviving alone with only her zombie boyfriend to keep her company. Next is a gang of campers who are trying to make their way to freedom by use of a river. Then we’re shown the story of some survivors who are lucky enough to have a doctor in their midst. The final story is of a loner who finds companionship in a child he finds living alone in a house in the woods.

While the movie tends to drag, it certainly doesn’t lack charm and creativity. First-time writer/director Antonio Greco weaves an interesting tale of fear and survival that culminates in quite a nice little surprise at the close. The majority of the acting leaves something to be desired in most spots but that is to be expected from an indie with a limited budget. What you hope for with a film like this is bright spots and there are bright spots in this flick. The fact that this is Antonio Greco’s first crack at writing and directing a feature leaves me hopeful for his future; he has some really good ideas and he knows how to get them across on film. Also, actor Julian Thomas really shined in his role as Marcus, the loner who befriends the child in the “Winter” segment.

If you happen to catch “The Year after Infection”, don’t expect tons of action or piles of gore. You’ll get some action but you’re not going to get hordes of sprinting zombies chasing Ving Rhames through a mall. And you’re going to get some gore but you’re not going to get a crowd of zombies ripping poor David in half as he hangs out the window at The Winchester Pub (if you know what I mean).

What you will get is a solid first effort by a young film-maker looking to make his bones in the industry; sometimes that’s enough for me. Check it out.

Solomon Kane Trailer – VOD August 24th

Solomon Kane starring James Purefoy, Max von Sydow, Mackenzie Crook and Philip Winchester is on VOD this Friday, August 24th and in theaters September 28th.

CAPTAIN SOLOMON KANE is a brutally efficient 16th Century killing machine. Armed with his signature pistols, cutlass and rapier, he and his men unleash their bloodlust as they fight for England in war after war on all continents.

As the story opens, Kane and his band of pillagers are carving a bloody path through hordes of defenders in an exotic city in northern Africa. But, when Kane decides to attack a mysterious nearby castle to plunder its rumored riches, his mission takes a fateful turn. One by one, Kane’s men are picked off by demonic creatures until he alone is left to face the Devil’s own Reaper — dispatched from the depths of Hell to lay claim to his hopelessly corrupt soul. Though Kane at last manages to escape, he knows that he now must redeem himself by renouncing violence and devoting himself wholly to a life of peace and purity. His newfound spirituality, however, is quickly put to the ultimate test when he begins his journey across an England ravaged by diabolical human Raiders controlled by a terrifying, masked Overlord. After Kane fails to thwart the brutal slaughter of the Crowthorns, a Puritan family that has befriended him, he vows to find and free their enslaved daughter Meredith — even if it means jeopardizing his own soul by re-embracing his murderous talents for a higher cause. His determined search eventually brings him face to face with his family’s own deadly secrets as he attempts to save Meredith and all of England from the forces of evil.

Simon Oakes, Vice-Chairman of Exclusive Media and President & CEO of Hammer announced today that Hammer, an Exclusive Media Company, begins principal photography on The Quiet Ones, the supernatural thriller/horror which will shoot on location in Oxfordshire. Starring Jared Harris (Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, ‘Mad Men’) and Sam Claflin (Snow White and the Huntsman, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides), The Quiet Ones will be directed by John Pogue (Quarantine 2: Terminal). Joining the cast are Erin Richards (‘Breaking In’, ‘Being Human’), Olivia Cooke (‘The Secret of Crickley Hall’, ‘The Fuse’) and West End theater actor Rory Fleck-Byrne. With the story and original screenplay by Tom DeVille, revisions by Craig Rosenberg, Oren Moverman and most recently John Pogue, the film is produced by James Gay-Rees (Senna, Exit Through The Gift Shop) and Ben Holden in association with TPSC Films.

Sales are being handled by Alex Walton, Exclusive Media’s President of International Sales and Distribution. The Quiet Ones marks Hammer’s next production after the worldwide box office hit, The Woman in Black, starring Daniel Radcliffe, which has taken over $130 million at the box-office worldwide to date. Other Hammer productions in the works include The Woman In Black: Angels Of Death, to be produced with Talisman, Cross Creek Pictures and Alliance Films; Boneshaker to be produced with Cross Creek Pictures; Gaslight written by newcomer Ian Fried and the newly announced The Winchester Mystery House to be produced with Imagination Design Works (IDW) and Nine/8 Entertainment.
