World of the Dead: The Zombie Diaries review

Zombies can’t keep diaries, but if they did they’d be pretty repetitive, something Kevin Gates and Michael Bartlett’s ambitious sequel to their 2006 DV horror could also be accused of.

Following a unit of soldiers across post-apocalyptic England’s snowy, corpse-strewn wastelands, it’s shot first-person, shakey-cam style.

Despite an extremely bleak world view, with nods to Schindler’s List, and prolonged sexual torture, we’ve seen this umpteen times before, but the excellent camerawork lends proceedings an urgency some elements don’t deserve.
