An apocalyptic action horror that’s divided on Netflix

Neil Marshall was once dubbed horror’s newest prodigy after delivering the hugely popular duo of dog soldiers and The descent aged only 35, but his next feature apocalypse marked the beginning of a downturn to mediocrity and falling yields.

A Rotten Tomatoes score of 51% and a user rating of 44% underscore the project’s mediocre nature, although some set pieces are a slap in the face, while Marshall didn’t exactly skimp on blood, either. However, a $22 million return at the box office was a poor return, even as the fast-paced frenzy of blood, guts and bullets impacted streaming.

It happened to be the first time the filmmaker had worked on what could be described as a substantial budget, with the post-apocalyptic fusion of action and horror costing £17million, around three times the cost of his first two films combined. The ambition was there, but the end product left a lot to be desired.

The entire nation of Scotland is contained after a virus devastates the populace, turning them into savage creatures that bear little resemblance to humans. 25 years later, the heroine of Rhona Mitra leads a crack team back into danger to find a cure after the Reaper tribe crossed the border and arrived in London.

According to FlixPatrol, apocalypse has exploded in popularity on Netflix, making the top 10 in no fewer than 14 countries across two continents. Scotland’s Tourist Board wholeheartedly agreed that the country was turning into a barren wasteland, but local politicians were not quite so enthusiastic, although it was hardly intended as a realistic prediction of Britain’s internal relations a quarter century into the future.
