Within a couple of hours, a new disease wipes out almost all of mankind. Trying to avoid infection, people flee to remote locations, but they start seeing mysterious black figures, carrying away the dead and experimenting on them. Now, Lance and Rachel, two survivors determined to fight back, must kill the leader of these creatures before the rest of humanity disappears.
As a lifelong horror fan there are a few things I love. I love gore, a movie that is seriously creepy, and I like not being able to predict where the movie is heading. I am very happy to announce that The Sky Has Fallen gives me all of those things and in spades! This film packs wall to wall gore and keeps you interested with an eerie story in between. And another plus about this movie is I don’t recall seeing any CGI insight. So that means either it doesn’t have any or it’s tucked under the radar so much I didn’t notice. Either way, this movie brings the violence and the blood runs all over the place.
Now I don’t know if you call these evil bastards in this thing “zombies”, but they are twelve shades of scary. They look the part and have some very strange characteristics. Also holding this film together is the camera work and the editing. It makes this film look like a million bucks and I’m happy that’s the case. Those things along with a pair of interesting and strong leads might just make this movie a Top 10 contender for the end of the year. If you want to take a chance on an independent film this year, then you should for sure check out The Sky Has Fallen. You will not have a problem finding this movie since it is available at most movie shops. If you are like me, then you are a fan of buying new DVDs online. I love the excitement of having something mailed to my front door within a few days. It definitely changes things up when you are used to only getting bills and credit card statements.
