Great low budget filmmaking. The make-up and cinematography is some of the best ever, even ranks up with movies with more higher budgets! Although, the characters keep making stupid decisions which really got on my nerves!

I feel like I just watched the best student film ever made. I am definetely going to watch the sequels after seeing this though.

For all the elements that don't work, there are more that do.
