"As first reported in Screen International, Netflix swooped for the worldwide rights to this zombie thriller from the producers of The Babadook last year in a multi-million-dollar deal. The film is Ben Howling and Yolanda Ramke’s collaborative debut, and is based on their short film from 2013, which garnered 12 million views online. Martin Freeman stars as a father who is stranded in rural Australia with only 48 hours to find a new home for his baby daughter, after being infected in the wake of a violent pandemic. It’s the first Australian film to sit under Netflix’s Originals banner."
"First-time feature film-makers (and co-directors) Yolanda Ramke and Ben Howling extend a clever, viral Tropfest short film into a fully fledged zombie movie with a surprising amount of soul and pathos. Martin Freeman stars as a father determined to find a carer for his infant daughter before he transforms into the undead, traversing a treacherous semi-dystopian landscape. Howling and Ramke turn what could have been a rote genre exercise into a genuinely scary film about the fear of losing our land, ourselves and our loved ones".
