Review of Canuck apocalypse drama Autumn

Year: 2009

Directors: Steven Rumbelow

Writers: David Moody / Steven Rumbelow

IMDb: link

Trailer: link

Review by: agentorange

Rating: 5.2 out of 10

After muscling through the first 15 minutes of Autumn (a viewing experience not unlike dropping a bottle of Quaaludes and watching the apocalypse happen through a stained glass window) I was relieved to discover that Steven Rumbelow's low budget zombie apocalypse film was not the cheapo snooze-fest I was half expecting it to be, but a decent indie character piece that handles the survival drama with a touch of class. No, this film isn't perfect (in fact, technically speaking it's a complete gong show at times), but with David Moody's great cult novel backing it up, a wild walk-on performance by the late David Carradine and zombies that would make Romero proud, Autumn proved a worthy enough Sunday afternoon diversion for this reviewer and a film I fully expect will

New Poster and trailer for Pa zombie flick Autumn

We've been covering this flick for a while, going all the way back to February and while it's a bit low budget, the footage looks great and it also stars David Carradine, how can you go wrong with that? It's based on the acclaimed cult novel by David Moody and was recently picked up by sales agent Splotlight Pictures so let's hope we can get a screener soon. Here's a full synopsis:

"As the last autumn leaves slowly peel away from the trees, a mysterious airborne virus ravages the planet, and within a few hours billions die. Victims suffer horrific deaths as their internal organs liquefy, and whole towns’ expire within minutes. Soon cities become infested breeding grounds for the new apocalyptic virus. By the end of the first day there are only a handful of survivors.

A small group of ordinary strangers are soon forced to work together to stay alive.
