Quick Review: Autumn (2009)

"A horrible virus kills billions within minutes. The few survivors that are left have to deal with the shock of the apocalypse, and they have no idea that things are about to get much worse."

Wow is this movie a mess: it's horribly shot; it boasts some beyond-bad special effects; it's got some all-too-noticeable hollow, tinny audio; although it tries to put a fresh twist on "Infected" flicks, its storyline is ridiculous; poor acting, save for Dexter Fletcher... at least the poster is cool? 

"Why am I in this movie?"
  • What's with all of the slow-motion? 
  • For that matter, what's with all of the fast-forward motion? 
  • The budget for this movie must have been 6 Quid. As an American, I have no idea what 6 Quid even is, but I'm pretty sure that's what the budget was. 
  • This movie is slower than a retirement home orgy. 
  • What a sad waste of Dexter Fletcher
  • The "zombies" look pretty cool, but they don't do anything until they get hungry, which ends up being more than an hour into the movie.

Don't ponder it, mates, this one just sucked.
Although it did try to take a fresh approach to the Infected/Zombie sub-genres, Autumn was a poorly produced, half-assed effort. Skip Autumn and wait for Winter.
