    ★★★★½

    It absolutely remains one of the greatest zombie movies of all time. Very, very impressively made for a low-budget debut, it's gripping and thrilling and exciting and the zombies look really really good.

The camerawork is really good, it's a constantly moving camera, but not hand-held, it's full of close-ups of the lead character, and so stuff only comes into frame when it's right next to her, so whenever the camera moves you're constantly shitting yourself waiting to see what the fuck is going to happen. Some of the visuals are really terrifically scary,…
