Trivia

When the woman complains another that woman has collapsed inside the police station the cop with the moustache says "What do I look like a doctor"? Is a clever reference to the fact that the actor who plays the cop with the moustache Sean Pertwee is the son of Jon Pertwee who played the 3rd Doctor. See more »

A mess with no ideas of its own.
14 October 2010 | by Victor_FallonSee all my reviews

A film based on zombies that move quicker than most (but not all) zombies from other movies is not a good premise for a story. It's not even the seed of a story. Even their own blurb says:

"DEVIL'S PLAYGROUND is a cutting edge British horror film that features zombies portrayed by free runners for a terrifyingly authentic representation of the undead."

There are so many things wrong with everything in that sentence, but mainly the word 'authentic', as if the filmmakers spent time documenting those pesky reanimated corpses which litter our streets, sprinting and leaping about everywhere.

This is barely a movie. I could criticize it further, but you can simply choose any word like 'acting' or 'directing' or 'script' and put it next to the word 'terrible'. This will save you time. The two stars is for a good title. If you want to watch free runners pretend to be zombies, you have my sympathy.
