Alone – USA, 2020 – Preview of new angst-ridden zombie horror

‘Anyone that survives this will have to be forgiven for unforgivable things.’

Alone is a 2020 American infection horror feature film about a man isolated in his apartment as a zombie apocalypse ensues outside.

Directed by Johnny Martin (Delirium; Skeleton Man) from a screenplay written by Matt Naylor, the JAR Films-Martini Films production stars Donald Sutherland (The Puppet Masters; Invasion of the Body Snatchers; Don’t Look Now), Tyler Posey (The Lost Boys 2019; Scream: The TV Series; Truth or Dare), Robert Ri’chard (iZombie series; The Vampire Diaries series; The Burrowers) and John Posey.

The plot is very similar to that of the French film The Night Eats the World (2018).
