    OK many people would probably find this movie not very good, but honestly I actually really enjoyed. It has an interesting plot and takes ideas from many other sources without being to copycat. Give it a try

  • ★★★½ review by MrRobutt on Letterboxd

    Most people probably didn't like think film or thought it was lame. But i thoroughly enjoyed it. I swear that it wasn't because of Kathryn Prescott.

    It just helped.

    The film was very enjoyable, and I enjoyed the story quite a bit. There were some things I felt were silly which is why the rating isn't perfect. Its not a perfect film. Just a pretty good film I liked.

    I hated liking Adam. But I did, and I rooted for him to be with Katie the entire film.

    All-in-all it was a pretty good film for something from the Nerdist. Not too shabby!

    After all the buzz around this (pun firmly intended), I felt a bit let down in the end. In attempt to be something original, The Hive gave me the impression of someone just borrowing from their favorite films. Granted, the "chameleon eyeball" effect was truly innovative and memorable, so credit there. On the whole, though, the story was just okay for me.

    A couple items that did really annoy me were sound related. I had to give in and turn on the closed captioning because between the mumbling of some dialogue and blaring music and/or effects, it was either blow my ears out or miss parts of the story. Also, the romantic music scores for Adam and Katie were off-putting, jarring, and, frankly, cliche. Bleech.

    I recommend waiting to stream it free instead of paying a rental on this one, friends.

    A really solid use of a smaller budget for a unique take on a zombie movie, in a genre that's getting harder and harder to actually have a unique take on anything.

    Now this is one enjoyable little gem. Good acting, well shot and well written. Parts zombie film, part possession, part memento part love story. Mix all of those together and you have yourself a damn good movie. Can’t say too much more without giving anything away, so just watch it.
