Movie Trailers: Decay - Trailer

Decay - Trailer

If you're a fan of zombies and science then this is the movie for you.

Watch Video

wow... Just...wow...

That looks horrible..

...And here I thought World War Z was going to be the shittiest zombie movie I have seen the trailer for... And this just knocks it out of the park

It's a amateur film done on a budget of ~2k by a bunch of PhD students on site at CERN. And apparently it's already been released online for free viewing. So yeah, whilst that was definitely some hammy acting and dodgy visuals, it doesn't look too bad for a student film. Would have preferred it if they'd gone in for a subject matter maybe a bit more weird and surreal given they had whole CERN thing to play around with, rather than just using it as an excuse for a stage a zombie outbreak.

DK does look like it was made by students which is the problem.

Also Shotgun coining the abbreviation DK?

science + zombies = Half Life not this

Yeah, they could only really have gone for something clever that we've never seen before (using their science brains and setting to discuss something cool and sciency) or they should have gone for something utterly silly and fun. Serious zombie movie should never have been on the cards.

I had to laugh when the trailer read "THAT NOBODY EXPECTED?", at this point it would be unexpected if it WASN'T zombies

they better find some coathangers quick...

Oh god.. just

Why?

Why do you have to be so dumb looking.

Why does every new scientific discovery end up with someone thinking it will create zombies?

How could a field that gives everything Mass even CREATE zombies?

Like CERN doesn't get enough Flack because some newspaper jerk nicknamed The Higgs Boson ''The God Particle''

Ugh.

Ugh.

As mentioned it's by students who work at CERN, they know it's not going to create zombies, it's a joke/a fun hobby.

If that's the case why didn't they go with something that might actually be fun, like inter-dimensional aliens? Yeah it would be a half-life ripoff but that's going to get called anyway.

I can ask some of them if you like, but it could be something as simple as zombie makeup is easy.

I must admit I had a similar reaction when I heard it but we physicists aren't the most creative bunch.

Guess that makes sense. Considering the budget I guess that might be a bit much.

Yeah, that's for us artists with engineering degrees XD

Realistic looking alien costumes are expensive, fake blood is relatively cheep.

Exactly this.
Oh look, new science? IT'LL KILL US ALL!
And obviously the "dangerous radiation" doesn't just... I dunno... cause cancer or something. Nope, zombies.

Also I get it's supposed to be tongue-in-cheek or whatever, but it looks just utterly awful, so it doesn't even get the funny-parody save.

Nope, DK will forever refer to Donkey Kong. Besides, if you need an abbreviation for a five letter word then there's something wrong with you.

OT: Wow, lotta hate in here. I'm not claiming to be a professional movie critic or anything, but considering 1: it's a student film and 2: it's completely free to watch and 3: it's budget was incredibly low, aren't you guys being a bit too harsh? I mean it's a zombie movie for god sakes, at least they're actually giving the REASON for there being zombies rather than the general standard of "Wake up one day and oh shit! Zombies!"

Just seems to me you guys are grading this a bit roughly considering the nature of what it is...we're not talking about something that's supposed to tople Lord of the Frickin' Rings here. Some zombie fans made a zombie movie and they're giving it out for free, it's not meant to be the next Dawn of the Dead...or even Shaun of the Dead.

Is anyone really sick of zombies... about two years ago?

hell no, if you read and/or watch the walking dead. :) they do it right!

i get your point though, but that happens to most things... becomes popular and mainstream then its done to death until the next "trend"
none of that matters, if its done well then it will be good even if the content is repetitive at the time. If its just reused drivel and you know it, just ignore it and find better quality entertainment.

Like there are trailers and such that come out and you instantly know its terrible, but yet still gets made. Try and support the more creative and unique.

Watched the whole movie. It is as bad as its setting is awesome. :)

Although, I have to admit that it suffers from a kind of Uncanny Valley effect, because the camera work and post production are actually fairly high quality, making the viewer judge this project by real movie standards.
