Film 104: The Zombie Diaries

'Found footage' films are ten-a-penny nowadays but back in 2006 the idea of a zombie outbreak seen through the lens of someone's video camera was something original and new. Of course, by the time that Kevin Gates' and Michael Bartlett's film was released, there was also George Romero's Diary of the Dead. And the Spanish film [rec].

Nevertheless, Zombie Diaries is an impressive and enjoyable movie featuring some interesting ideas, strong characters,  a clever three-part structure and some terrific zombie make-up.
