Reviews [click links to read more]:

The Cove makes uses of its limitations by telling a story more about characters than about the larger world itself, and while it may be relatively low thrills it wasn’t a bad entry in the genre as the low thrills also gave a strange chilled post-apocalyptic vibe.” The Rotting Zombie

The Cove does have a few nice touches, like the aquatic zombies and the weird luminescent blue water. But that was far from enough to keep me interested. Between a script that seemed confused as to just how ravaged and destroyed society is and distinctly unbelievable characters, I was zoned out well before the Deus ex machina ending.” Voices from the Balcony
