Valley of the Dead review

Valley of the Dead is now streaming on Netflix.

I’ve seen zombies sweep through WWII (overlord), interrupting the American Civil War (Exit Humanity), and now I’ve seen them enter the Spanish Civil War thanks to Alberto de Toro and Javier Ruiz Caldera’s Valley of the Dead. There is no connection to Zack Snyder’s ongoing case Army of the Dead Franchise; Rather, the import from Netflix is ​​influenced by John Carpenter’s catalog of horrors, according to the filmmakers. Another maniac plays god, resurrecting corpses and threatening humanity with an undead apocalypse the likes of which we’ve seen time and time again, except this time there’s a European cultural context to liven up another literal zombie thriller.

Jan Lozano (Miki Esparbé), captain of the 5th Brigade, is captured by the opposition. He has a chance to redeem himself and prove his loyalty when he takes on a suicide mission into enemy territory with his moody young driver, Decruz (Manel Llunell). Jan never misses an opportunity and finds himself the delivery man between Nationalists and Republicans. Still, this is a zombie flick, so assume its goal is jeopardized when Nazi experiments unleash strays onto battlefields – which gets even more complicated when Jan is captured by opposing rebels who don’t lend a hand to the situational defector trust.
