Poor old Solomon Northup (Chiwetel Ejiofor) doesn’t have any luck. No sooner has he escaped captivity and moved to London when an outbreak of the artificially created Rage virus infects the population. With the help of Cillian Murphy and Moneypenny out of Skyfall can he escape from the legions of hell and the grasp of a newly zombified Edwin Epps (Michael Fassbender)? Find out at your local cinema.*
Here’s what the critics are saying:
“A rollicking ride through 19th century England!” – The Telegraph
“Emily Bronte meets George Romero. Outstanding” – The Financial Times
“Brings a historical story that demands to be told to life” – Le Monde
“A disgusting exploitation film that has no respect for the lives of those who experienced this tragedy. Five stars!!!” – Screenkicker
