Great dialogue and a very good performance. Enjoyed hearing how the guys attitude and tone changed from scene to scene and the lines are delivered as if they are straight off the cuff instead of out of a script. Reminded me in tone (and somewhat in scenario)of McCarthy's The Road. Loved the editing and the flash scenes. A very good apocalptic flick.

This reminded me alot of "The Lost Tape," a video diary that was shot for the Dawn of the Dead re-make's DVD by director Zack Snyder.

Liked how you mixed in footage of what had happened in order to get your lead character to the point he was alone in a remote cabin contemplating the nature of the "plague." And whether or not he was indeed the last man standing (common themes in Romero's films). It made the experience more varied and interesting.

I would have liked this flick even more if there had been more to it. You had an interesting take on Romero's Living Dead franchise, and definitely left us wanting more. Your dialogue and VO's in particular, were spot on to the franchise.

Good flick.

Bez is back, back, back.

I hop on the forums to see what's what, looking for a few good films, and I see your thread. I turn to my lady and say out loud, "Oh, sweet, Bez has a new film out." Out loud, I said this, because I know what to expect from you, my friend.

And I was not disappointed. The default moans and screams were a forgiveable blip on my radar screen (but I'd rather not hear them next round - PM me if you need some sounds - I have a mike, alady I can make scream any time, and I do a pretty gnarly zombie-moan).

"There may be no one left to eat but... me."

"I got one bullet left... just in case."

"What would you do?"

As a huge fan of the genre, I'll watch anything dead, and this first-person narrative touches on most of the genre's sweet spots as our solitary hero lays out the who, what, when, and where of it all.

As to the why? I'll leave that up to the viewer as the curtain closes. Me, I blame God. ;)

Welcome back, back, back, Bez. Good stuff, just like I expected.

That was an excellent read there Bezzer,I really enjoyed your performance. Nice and tight narration, wasn't so keen on the "moo" sound from the zombies, could have been something less comical and more terrible.

Stellar job!

I really liked this... this is.... by far the best film I have seen on this site. A hint of "I am Legend" crossed with Romero's "Dead" trilogy. The absence of music gave incredible focus towards Blake's monologue. And you didn't explain why there were zombies, which I liked. Very arthouse, not many people go against the Hollywood crap style. Thumbs up.

Brilliant apocalyptic style. Love it. Makes the audience guess what happened. Nuclear War? Viral outbreak? Brilliant.

A simply incredible, hard-hitting, just epic film. Keep up the incredible work!

WOOOOO, total awrsome, that was the best movie ever, not a action or a horror but just talking but doing that is a risk of being boring but you just pulled it of man. Bravo. see ny quite rubbish movies with no stunts and effects.

Very nice. Very nice indeed. You don't get too many good zombie flicks on TMO. Now I can think of about 3 that I've enjoyed (just recently), so I guess I'll have to re-evaluate that!

Bravo. Well done.

What a return by Bezzer! Nice style, and great ending. Great performance as well--Bezzer's becoming quite the VA as well as an accomplished director. Looking forward to more Bezzed goodness after the vacation. Bon voyage, Bezz!

Nice short narrative Bezzer!

I like how this was different from other movies we've seen on TMO. A narrative about what the latest is going on in the world and what they are all up against, zombies. When I first saw the title I thought it was excellent, sounds really good. Love the mods you used and of course, the setdressing was outstanding! Great dialogue with some amazings VO's! Glad to see you coming back to the movies, this was a nice beginning of a fresh start. Keep up the great work and welcome back to TMO Bezzer.

Gosh, this brings back some good memories! Staying up 'till 3 A.M. and watching campy horror flicks- good times right there! I think that's why I enjoyed this movie so much! This wasn't really campy, but it still had that classic feel to it. The technical aspects were all in line here, and the story was fun! Well done Bezzer! :)

Time of the Dead is a fascinating narrative exploration of what has happened in the world.

You demonstrated some good use of modding and lighting to provide a distinctive look throughout the film, which was mainly to paint a discriptive picture. I thought the VO's were solid and were crisp and clear although I would have liked to hear some more emotions in some of the monologue.

Overall it was very interesting to watch and again I enjoyed watching another bezzer flick!

so until the next time....

Nuke Well with the Dead

Lovely!

Nice clear sound, some good editing (although I thought the 'Guns' scene was a little too dragged out), an all around good job that shows what with a little imagination and effort can be done with 'The Movies'.

I liked the idea. The dialouge and acting was superb in this movie. It was jut great. But it would have been even better if it sort of had a story of it´s own. It felt like it didn´t have a story. That he just told the story of what have hapened so far, which we had allready seen in Night Of The Living, Dawn Of The, Day Of The, and Land Of The Dead. But still it was a great movie and worth the attention.

A very well portrayed zombie movie.
It really get's into the gritty of the character's situation and what he's thinking.
I thought the use of sound effects rather than music kept the feeling of isolation and the end of the world as we know it.
Nicely edited together and well performed.

Good work!
Howie.

I like how you incorporated the psychology of it all with flashes of things actually happening as well as a reasonable excuse for zombies in the first place.

Very Sweet, Zombie movies like these always make me fear what i would do in such a situation. Nicely shot, voiced, written, and edited. Some top notch stuff, and the end was quite nice aswll.

Man is it good to see the old BEZ back!!

I love seeing this story shot from a video camera perspective. Like an I am legend scenerio told in a new way with an alternate ending. You always come up with a new way to do something.

Great flick to reintroduce yourself to the youngins!
