Maine Zombies hit Fangoria!

Emptyhouse Film's zombie movie "2" has hit Fangoria for a second time, this time in the form of a very favorable review! Scooter McRae gives the film three skulls, and really takes the time to carefully talk about it in very specific terms, without giving it all away.
...The chilly winter landscape, with visible breath often streaming out of the performers’ mouths, helps set up a bleak environment not often seen in this type of movie, especially one with such a low budget.
What sets “2” apart from many other movies with the exact same plot description is its bold willingness to approach the familiar trappings with a creative enthusiasm that generates a genuine sense of audience goodwill. That may seem like a weird way to describe such a bleak-sounding scenario, but it’s a good feeling to trust a movie that seems hell-bent on not succumbing to audience expectations, while at the same time clearly eager to deliver the goods in its own way and at its own pace.

It's nice to see someone so thoroughly recognize all the different elements of the film that Andy, Olin, and the rest of the production crew put so much work into.
