Extinction – Official Trailer (2015)

And suddenly, overnight, the world came to a halt. Two men, two survivors, one kid, and hatred that separates them. A place forgotten by everyone, including the creatures that inhabit the Earth… until now.

Nine years after an infection turns most of the humanity into rabid creatures, Patrick, Jack and Lu, a nine-year-old girl, survive in seeming peace and calm in the forgotten snow-covered town of Harmony. We nonetheless sense that something terrible happened between Patrick and Jack because a deep hate keeps them apart. When the infected appear again, Patrick and Jack will have to leave behind all rancor to protect the one being who means more to them than anything else.

I haven’t heard of this movie till I accidentily came across it on Youtbe, and the only thing I thought of [along with other viewers] is it is too similar to the move ’30 Days of Night’. Also, even the trope of ‘we’re all going to die’ is thrown in in the middle of the trailer…I mean, really? It’s 2015, we’ve seen too many films with the lines ‘we’re all going to die’ and then- usually the heroin or hero- replies with ‘no we’re not’ and maybe with an added ‘not if I have anything to do with it’- just for an extra kick…or more of an extra squirm out of your tummy….PLEASE STOP!…We need original horror stories, I am sick and tired of being fed the same-old ***** time and time again. I want something original and new!! From this trailer alone, I know it’s still early days, but I’ll be giving this movie a miss.
