Review: In The Flesh

A government announcement, on YouTube gives you tips on how to survive and what to do if bitten in the current zombie outbreak

This isn’t really the end of the world, but instead the new trailer for the upcoming Dominic Mitchell written three part BBC horror-drama In The Flesh, which debuts on the 17th of March, staring Luke Newberry, Ricky Tomlinson and Kenneth Cranham.in-the-flesh-bbc

Rather than being a straight up us against the zombies, In The Flesh looks at what would happen if the zombie state was curable, now it is time to return to normality, but it isn’t that simple for 18-year-old ex-zombie, Kieren (Newberry), just released from his rehabilitation centre, making his way home, while struggling to cope with the guilt of all the people that they ate and coupled with dealing with the resentment and hatred from people that lost loved ones or fought against the zombi hoards, all of this makes this teenagers passage into manhood a little more difficult.

I have been a little tired of the zombie craze that has been going on lately, but this seems to have a pretty good premise, I just hope it doesn’t go the same way as The Fades (which I still think they made a mistake in canceling, but thats an argument for another time), so if you like zombies films or feel like you struggle to fit in, then In The Flesh is going to be right up your alley.
