Poor Mike. He's really hit a rough patch. He borders on the edge of lunacy. Everything that can go wrong in his life does so. His car goes out on him. His girlfriend kicks him to the curve. And he has a serious drinking problem. Before his life becomes any more of a country music song, his friend, Jim, gets him to come out to a big party at another rich friend's estate. But strange things start to happen. The radio in the car tunes to a religious station, and it can't be changed. Plus, there's that old cemetery nearby. And in the morning some weird looking dude takes a bite out of Jim. They toss this seeming lunatic into a closet. Some of the friends go to get help. But the young men that remained behind face a very serious problem--zombies. That cemetery starts coughing up its residents. Is it the wrath of God? End of the world?

Very Good Movie

Sullen ends up being a really good movie. The acting was good. The make-up was impressive for the zombies. It had a nicely developed storyline as well. I was especially impressed by how the story incorporated religion. A lot of times any religious references or implications really feel forced, such as via cheesy dialogue. But, here, the use of such things as the radio turning to that religious station and it constantly staying there suggests that something more must be going on. I also liked how the shots during the night were doused in red light. That worked very well. It was nice not to have an obvious blue lens effect in here. I give this film 8 out of 10.
