Fear Itself 'New Year's Day' (TV)

In this latest episode directed by Darren Lynn Bousman director of saw 2,3,4 and Repo The Genetic Opera.

What could be worse than being woken up the early hours in the morning with a hangover because you celebrated new Year's? Well when Helen (Briana Evigan) wakes up after this with sirens, gun shots and screaming she has no idea what is going on.

After unsuccessfully locate anyone in her apartment block she does discover a couple of blood pools. When a sudden banging on the door grabs her attention she looks through the peep hole only to discover that one of the people from the building is trying to  get in but is in a zombie form.

Helen is trying to find a way to get to her boyfriend James's (Cory Monteich) house where one of the friends Christine (Zulay Henao) is also hiding.

What follows is her journey out of the building to her boyfriends filled with lots of different encounters along with flashbacks of the party the night before.

Filled with lots of shots which are also used in the Saw films to show more panic in the main protagonist. Even though it can be said it is full of 'zombie' franchise cliches  it still keeps you on the edge of your seat through out. All these leads to a very clever twist ending.

My rating 9/10
