The Locals

In Theatre : Unknown
Director(s):

The story starts as two mates Grant and Paul go out west to go surfing and stay a batch. They travel out into the country and get to an old bridge, where they meet up with two chicks dressed like they are from the 80’s. Anyway the chicks invite Grant and Paul to a party further down the road. But the only catch is that they have to keep up with the chicks in order to find out where the party is. They are speeding down the road when they almost T-bone some speeding locals. Paul drives the car right into a ditch and it is impossible for them to get out. They ditch the car and starting walking down the road looking for someone to be able to tow them out of the ditch and back onto the road. They come across an old house, when they go to knock on the door they hear screaming and yelling inside. They sneak a peak through a window to see a farmer abusing his wife, they continue to watch as the wife pulls a shotgun on her husband, he grabs the barrel, produces a fishing knife and slits her throat. The boys then make themselves know and scream, they run away and then the fun really begins.

This is not so much a zombie movie but rather a restless dead movie. When a person dies in this obviously cursed land they get up and start walking around completely oblivious to being dead. But here is the really creepy thing, their bodies stay where they died, it is much like the sixth sense. The bodies that are walking around talk, think, and act like humans. But they are all under the control of the mentioned farmer, who seems to be under the impression that even after you die (a hundred years ago) the land still belongs to you. The damned range in a time period from about 1900 to about 1980.

This movie has a very eerie atmosphere. It is much like the Texas Chainsaw Massacre in regards to when you don’t know whom you can trust. It seems like the entire population of farmers are against them. They can trust nobody and everybody is out to get them.

The Locals Review by Meh

The Locals is an european movie, or at least I think so based on the accents in the movie. I would guess it was made in England or Ireland. The movie is well shot and is quite unique from the typical zombie movie. Althou...
