My thoughts… “Made with a budget of around $100, between school and during holidays.” Well, Holdout is a pretty good zom-com considering its very limited budget. Let me tell you why I like this film apart from the charmingly good ameteur acting. First, I think Rick’s girlfriend Steph (Indira Force) is a beautiful zombie! Why did he have to kill her? Second, “that’s what she said” jokes are always funny even amidst a zombie apocalypse! Finally, I love that punky music that plays over the opening credits! Oh, and Philippa Stephens is quite adorable, too!
