      Brent McKnight The Last Thing I See A slow burn narrative and mounting tension between the leads pumps some welcome, much needed electricity into the undead. Rated: B+ Jul 7, 2020 Full Review José Martín El antepenúltimo mohicano The characters in The Battery never manage to earn anyone's sympathy. [Full Review in Spanish] Rated: 2/5 Mar 19, 2020 Full Review Brendan Boyle PopMatters Amounting to one feature-length inciting incident, the low-budget zombie film The Battery will test the limits of even the most devoted horror fans' patience. Rated: 4/10 Mar 19, 2020 Full Review Michelle Swope Dread Central Something Else is a hell of a love story and a nightmarish monster movie and an overall fantastical experience. Rated: 5/5 Mar 19, 2020 Full Review Sarah Gopaul Digital Journal This is one of the best zombie films to be made in quite some time, owing much to Gardner's grasp of the genre and his on-screen chemistry with Cronheim. Oct 31, 2018 Full Review Anton Bitel VODzilla.co Jeremy Gardner's feature debut reduces the zombie apocalypse to an edgy buddy pic. Aug 17, 2018 Full Review Read all reviews

      Jeff P This movie is 12 years old now, and it still holds up as one of my favorites. The dialogue, the cinematography, the idea that the zombies are a backdrop to the story, every bit of this film is impressive and well executed. The soundtrack and original score are fantastic as well. I wish there were more movies like this. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/08/24 Full Review alexander n shot in 15 days on a 6k budget? never rooted for two characters like that for a long, long time. brilliant. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/18/24 Full Review Emilliano Jr S An interesting, decent zombie drama. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 09/10/23 Full Review Lagrange P Horror suffers from Zombie fatigue these days, which is part of why this movie is so good. Another excellent film from writer/director/actor Jeremy Gardner, the Battery keeps the Zombies subordinate to the relationship between the characters, the increasing tension between them, and its ultimate resolution. The script is tight, sparse and well-written, the direction is tremendous, and the cinematography keeps the wide open spaces wide open and the claustrophobic spaces appropriately cramped. Solid performances and strong character development combines with quality filmmaking to wring the very most from the obviously limited budget. Gardner's formidable powers never seem disappoint. He knows the tropes, understands the audience, and delivers an appropriately frightening and thoughtful horror experience worthy of genre fans' attention. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 07/21/23 Full Review Seth S The first zombie story in a while that didn't make me instantly think -Romero or The walking dead. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 07/10/23 Full Review Sandra G This movie exceeded whatever expectations I had. Totally different vibe from most other Zombie flicks, almost mellow. I enjoyed it and only hated that it had to end. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/17/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
