I don't know what it is that makes the average Euro Horror flick seem "better" than the average American effort, but I never feel the need to bash on them when they're lacking as much as I do the flicks that come out of the U.S.
Maybe it's a cultural thing. Maybe the average Euro genre movie is made with more love and skill. Or maybe I'm just crazy. I don't know.
Whatever the reason is for my recent Euro Horror bias, What We Become is a movie that I really enjoyed a lot, even though I know that it's nothing new or exciting.
|WHATEVER THOSE MASKED GUYS TELL YOU TO DO, DO EXACTLY THE OPPOSITE!|
|THEY'RE MORE DANGEROUS THAN THE INFECTED THAT ARE ROAMING THE NEIGHBORHOOD.|
|FORGET THE RABBIT, KID. STAY INSIDE!|
It's well-made, and it has some pretty intense infected thrills, but they come a bit too late in the movie to make it truly exciting overall. It really felt like just as the movie got going, it ended. And that ending was a fairly bleak one, with a final shot that left us wanting to see more.

|THAT INFECTED DUDE KINDA LOOKS LIKE JOHN SNOW.|
It's well worth your time to watch this one if you've got Netflix, and if not, then you could do way worse than to rent it or buy the Blu-ray, if you need an infected fix.
What We Become is available now on VOD and Blu-ray.
Marie Hammer Boda is in this. She's kinda like the Danish Anna Paquin.
