Offical Selection: Sitges Film Festival
A journey into apocalypses both general and personal.
Karen (Zoë Tapper) and John (Ed Speleers), already facing the slow disintegration of their relationship, find themselves holed-up in their London flat as outside their door zombies roam. With their food supplies slowly running low, knocks on their door from desperate neighbours, and hungry zombies always waiting to get in, the couple are forced to make difficult decisions.
Award winning director Antonio Tublen’s Zoo offers some new twists on the genre in a film which focuses on the human aspects of the zombie movie. Interested in the fragile nature of social and romantic relationships as the world unravels rather than merely the simple spectacle of gore, Zoooffers an existential spin on the zombie film.
