Day 30 of 31 days of horror: Cargo (2017)

Thoomi: Proper creepy in there.
Andy: It’s proper creepy out here too.

Martin Freeman in a zombie movie? Yes, please. It is immediately apparent that this is not your average zombie flick. Cargo is a post apocalyptic story that takes place during an aggressive pandemic that turns people into snot dripping flesh eating zombies. They’re far enough into the pandemic that they’ve figured out how much time you have before you turn and there are these little kits that included a symptom card with a timeline, a watch that counted down from 48 hours, and a brain jabbing device in case you wanted to take care of yourself before you ate your family. This movie follows a man who is trying to find a safe place for his baby before his time is up. Several heartbreaking moments. I really liked this one.

At the beginning of the month, I made a list. 31 movies for 31 days, with 5 alternates. I watched 14 of them. Cargo was not on the list, but I am glad I took a chance on it because it’s really good.
