Looking like it was shot with an old Sony Handy-Cam, The Veil tells the story of a small seaside town overtaken by something in a test tube which gets in the water and causes the residents to turn into homicidal zombies, I guess. A group of impossible-to-understand-what-the-hell-they're-saying military types (because they're always wearing gas masks, it's difficult to understand which character is which, either) arrive in town to locate survivors.
The townspeople never appear very scary, and most appear to be just folks limping around wearing winter coats and hoodies, even through the introductory scenes seem to establish it as summer, and it wasn't until about halfway through the movie that I figured out the movie takes place in the UK.
The washed-out color and blurriness of the video doesn't help, especially with night shots, so it's almost always difficult to see what's going on, and what's being said. This, and the lack of any explanation as to what's going on makes it a difficult recommendation.
