In the tradition of American Zombie and Zombies Anonymous, this "zombie" movie, well, frankly pretty much sucks.
The acting sucks, mainly because the script (if any) sucks. Camera work sucks. Zombie effects are okayish, but generally pretty boring. Nothing much really happens. Just a bunch of people holed up in houses where somehow the power is still on, doing stupid non-entity things that amount to nothing. It follows the lives of 3-4 different people or couples. But, they generally don't interact or have anything to do with each other. It's like several vignettes were filmed and then portions of those vignettes were interleaved. Is the whole greater than the sum of its parts? Not a chance. There's no "bigger story" tying them all together, there are no great revelations or even good scares.
Hardly worth the $6 I paid for it. Yet another disappointing micro-budget zombie flick.
I'm pretty sure that Last of the Living will be equally disappointing, so methinks I won't even try on that one... Hmm, the YouTube trailer makes looks at least one step above Edges of Darkness, Zombies Anonymous and American Zombie. But, on the other hand, it does look like it's anywhere near on par with Shaun, Fido, Reident Evil, Land of the Dead, Undead or Alive, Mortuary or a host of other GOOD zombie flicks.

In addition to the other reviewer, the movie seems like a bunch of teenagers wrote a story that a bunch of amateur college kids acted in. The only interesting take was the Biblical origin of the zombie plague, but very little time was spent on it. The stories were very disjointed and the effects laughable.

It looks and feels like an amature acting class decided to make a movie. Seems like the 3 stories going on could be interesting if the movie wasn't so boring.
