The Reviews for April Apocalypse (2013)
Reviewed by Paul Magne Haakonsen Vote: 5/10/10
For some reason this movie ended up with the title "Zombies: An UndeadRoad Movie", which was the title of the DVD that I purchased. But ofcourse, anything even remotely zombie does catch my attention.
Without any knowledge of the movie, its story or cast, then I sat downto watch "April Apocalypse". But I have to say that I wasn't overlyimpressed with the movie as a whole. Now, don't get me wrong, as I amnot saying that it is a bad movie. It is just a very generic moviewhich offers absolutely nothing new to the zombie genre.
The two main acting talents Reece Thompson (playing Artie) and RebekahBrandes (playing April) were doing good enough jobs carrying the movie,although they had very little material to work with at the hands ofdirector Jarret Tarnol.
It was, however, William Morgan Sheppard (playing Pops) who made itworthwhile to sit down and watch the movie, despite of him not having aparticularly big role.
The effects in the movie were good enough, just don't expect anabundance of blood and gore, even though this is a zombie movie. Thisis more of a teenage movie infused with a zombie element, so I wassomewhat out of the target audience.
Storywise, then it was basic and simplistic. A teenager setting out toreach his high school love amidst a zombie infested America. Right,fairly straight forward and simple storyline. But for a zombieoutbreak, then Artie encounters surprisingly few zombies along the way.
"April Apocalypse" is nothing extraordinary, and as an avid zombieaficionado, then I must say that this movie came and went withoutleaving a dent or impression.
