Marina Antunes [Celluloid 07.16.18] United Kingdom zombies action drama



Patient Zero has to be one of the most unoriginal titles for a movie. I nearly scrolled right past it thinking it was an old movie but it's not and if anything, it actually looks like it could be a good one.


Directed by Stefan Ruzowitzky (The Counterfeiters, Deadfall, Cold Hell), the movie stars Natalie Dormer as Dr. Gina Rose, a doctor who, with the help of a military officer played by Matt Smith, are trying to find the titular patient zero of the zombie apocalypse. Enter Stanley Tucci, a new breed of zombie that isn't your typical mumbling brain eater but rather, the next step in the evolutionary ladder and the goal: rid the world of the pesky humans!



OK, so it feels a bit old hat but Patient Zero does feature an interest little twist on the typical zombie movie and more than that, it also has a rather outstanding cast which is a major selling feature. Hopefully, the movie lives up to the trailer which suggests good things to come.


That all said, Patient Zero isn't getting a wide release which could be a warning flag. It will be available on VOD August 14 and in limited theatrical release September 14.

An enjoyable zombie flick that many will compare to Day of the Dead. Matt Smith sounds so weird in the film (that's him narrating in the trailer).
