Reviews:

“First-time director Hassan Hussein and contributing writer Todd Klick (Followed) have written a very by the numbers script. We follow Jesse from place to place, she runs into zombies who kill her companions and then it’s off to the next place to repeat the process [….] But it’s all formulaic to the point it drains the impact out of what should be a pair of emotionally wrenching scenes.” Voices from the Balcony
