Cargo

I’m a sucker for a  good zombie movie. There’s just something about that mix of post-apocalypse and body horror that makes for the perfect sub-genre.

Netflix has a great little indie styled, low key zombie entry called Cargo.  The hook: dad is fleeing the undead across the Australian outback. Martin Freeman is the perfect choice for the protagonist. There are fine performances all around.

Oddly, the soundtrack also really stood out for me.  It’s a moody EDM 1 album that’s worth the listen.

If you like subtle chapters in an otherwise frenetic movie category, give this one a try.
