This was a real surprise for me. I didnt know too much about the film going in but it was very enjoyable and kept my attention despite screening at 6.20am this morning.

Rather enjoyed this one. Even though not much was going on. Kept me intrigued what was going to happen next. Even though it was a grim film but kept me watching.

it was ok, ending was a bit weak and the idea is not very original

It was so so bleak, awesome stuff.

I would go as far as saying this was one of the best films of the night.
I really loved it and it was a total surprise.
I have a trailer and everything;

Not for me, surprised how many positive comments on here but everyone to thier own, found it very dull and quite boring.
Thanks for the ride, sir.

I really liked Carriers, it was a little different, more about the horror of surviving and the fear of infection, the battle with your own demons rather than the physical demons you're faced with. A great film to end on.

I really liked this, was getting a bit tired and thinking about skipping it, but I'm glad I decided to stay as it was well worth it.

Really bleak and desolate, not a happy note to end the night on, but it was one of my favourites of the night. I liked the fact it was very character-driven and didn't spend a lot of time explaining the disease, and was more about the relationships than anything else.

Didn't really like the first 4 films of the night, but Carriers and Jennifer's Body ended the night on a good note for me.

Liked this but not sure why. Guess I just enjoyed the effect the whole situation had on the characters in a 'what would you do?' sort of way.

Quite bleak but enjoyable. Not quite sure how it will be marketed if it is to get a full mainstream release...

Really really impressed with Carriers although it did mean a rather depressing end to the night's festivities!

Nicely shot, nicely acted..... but what was it? Basically a film with all the standard zombie movie cliches...... but no zombies.

BORING!

And a terrible choice as last film of the night, something dumb and gory would've been far better.
