Movie Reviews

A review from Zombiefans!
Zombob | U.S.A. | 02/15/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Review time!!

1) ACTING: The acting was pretty good for a low / no budget indie. No oscars will be awarded here, but everyone seemed convincing in their roles.

2) PRODUCTION: The filming seemed weird to me. I had a lot of scenes that pixilated on me. I tried the dvd on another dvd player and on my computer, and I still had the pixilation issues. The black & white filming helped make the movie seem more desperate & hopeless, more destitute. The blood and gore was plentiful and many different weapons were used to dispose of the zombies.

3) THE ZOMBIES: Nothing really new here. The zombies seemed to differ in look and "speed" from zombie to zombie.

4) THE CAUSE: Man made air virus.

5) NUDITY: None.

FINAL: Overall, I did enjoy this, as the people behind it are obviously individuals who enjoy the zombie genre. Some new ideas were presented to the viewers. I do wish, though, that there was more money involved, as I felt there were some budgetary restraints that hindered the film. Also, the film clocked in at 2 and a half hours, and I felt that some scenes were drawn out and could have benefited from being shortened. And I won't even mention the art on the dvd case. The company behind the distribution of 'The Veil' was responsible for the artwork. A nice entry into the low / no budget zombie indie. Be sure to check out what's behind 'The Veil!'

Over praising marketing of movies should be banned!

""The Veil packs more visceral punch than Cronenberg on Amphetamine sulphate?"
more like cronenberg on down syndrome and laxatives overdose!
4 guys (the marines that will clean up the mess) talking trhough gas masks,a beggining with a man on a pier holding a briefcase with the virus?a dreamy sequence of the virus breaking out?people on candit camera doing their jobs,having a walk in the park with their children.and then hell on earth,with our high school loser friends playing the zombies?
the best was the army zombie-giant towards the end?(150 minutes,i thought this movie would never end!).
good intentions and nice diy gore effects,
but please people,dont over praise something just to make it sale.
back in the 80s people made more with far less...what happened to the new generation of camera holding filmakers?is it a budget thing?there is sure love in it,but it didnt came through as it should....either way,another zombie movie on my archive that i won't check out twice."
Bad movie

"first off if u can not afford color do not make a movie and do not give me black and white is for effect cause the only effect i got was how bad this movie is.second the story was stupid.third also stupid was having the actors talked through gas masks the entire movie.forth was the movie is 150 minates long.what did this guy think he was making,gone with the wind or titanic."
A boat load of crap

"This movie is horrid! I bought it based on all the 5 star reviews I read.

The characters all wear gas masks, so you can't tell who's talking and you can't hear about 85% of dialogue. The movie is extremely long and difficult to watch.

It's almost like a visual jigsaw puzzle, but due to horrible filming and sound, you're missing the majority of the pieces. Good luck trying to watch this nightmare.
