Grave Mistake: Somewhere it lost it's way
When the opening frames of Grave Mistake hit my screen I sighed, the camera effects were one of those they use when the budget is limited and it looked dreadful. I prepared myself for the worst and maybe that's why I came away quite surprised.
Grave Mistake though advertised as a horror is more of a comedy and tells the usual story of a group of survivors during a zombie apocalypse and does it quite well.
The first half is full of laughs, interesting deaths and competence.
The second forgets its a comedy and becomes a generic clichéd zombie flick and a distinctly average one at that.
And that is a damn shame as the first half really entertained me and was an example of what you can do to make the most of a minimal budget.
Full of quirky characters, some great deaths, oddly good sfx and some great comedy it's worth your time but expect disappointment by the end.
Great first half
Really quite funny
Strong sfx considering the budget
Weak second half
Camera effects are shoddy
Things I Learnt From This Movie:
Fu-Manchu is a martial art
The creators definitely had a thing for zombie children
