Speedster Zombies - Black Summer (2019) Series - Review

Six weeks after the start of the zombie apocalypse, Rose (Jaime King) is separated from her daughter, Anna, and she embarks on a harrowing journey to find her. Thrust alongside a small group of refugees in North America, she must brave a hostile new world and make brutal decisions during the most deadly summer of a zombie apocalypse.

Finally back for season 2 and I am excited. This series was a great little Netflix original. Not the average slow-walking zombies that you can just outrun. These ones are fast, strong, and will run you down. Crashing through walls and windows, you are safe only if you can get behind a closed locked door. In the same way, we saw the terror in the movie "28 days later", Another great zombie movie franchise. Season two is now available but is edited in a strange new way. Working in reverse, seeing the cast caught up in terrible situations, then showing you how they got there. I am not sure if I like this type of storytelling, but we will see how it plays out in the long run. The terror is heart pounding in this series as people fall continuously and often. Don't get too attached to anyone. In this apocalypse, no one is safe from being lunch. Let me know if you like these super zombies or the traditional slow walking and rotting old-school zombies.

Ranking 7/10
