Weeks after the outbreak of a zombie plague, a handful of survivors in rural Quebec try to stay ahead of the ravenous undead.
Aubert assembles a talented cast, led by Goons Marc-Andre Grondin and Monia Chokri of Laurence Anyways and Endorphine, and gives them some room to play. The dialogue is snappy, and the set pieces are effectively creepy.
Les Affames doesnt reinvent the wheel, and Im okay with that. Its an old-school Romero nightmare, and those are never unwelcome.
