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.
