Dead Weight (2013) "Learn to let it go"
« on: November 02, 2013, 09:14:33 PM »






Written and Directed by John Pata & Adam Bartlett





















"In the wake of an apocalyptic viral outbreak, Charlie Russell treks through the wilderness to reunite with his girlfriend, Samantha. As Charlie’s journey brings him closer to his destination of Wausau, WI, he must face physical exhaustion, malicious survivors, and perhaps most menacing, his own emotional burdens. With his newfound traveling companions, Charlie must attempt to break his obsessions with the past. He must learn to let it go."












Dead Weight came to my attention while doing the Days of the Dead thread here  http://extremehorrorcinema.com/index.php?topic=1676.0

Dead Weight (2013) is a zombie/infected film that showcases the characters more than the zombie element. Of a man going on a journey to hopefully finding his love alive, in the meantime meeting up with other survivors. Ronny Carlsson over at Film Bizarro does mention the finale third of this is quite brutal http://www.filmbizarro.com/view_review.php?review=deadweight.php

Looks well acted, visually interesting with it's bleak look superimposed with flash backs of brighter times. In ways similar to The Battery http://extremehorrorcinema.com/index.php?topic=1392.0 as it is a road trip to a perceived goal and the lack of people around.
