One thing that people worry about when they are gone for an extended amount of time is coming home to nothing. Things happen regardless if you are there or not, but if you are not there when it happens you feel much worse, thinking you could have done something to prevent it. The worst thing is having to sit all alone and think about it day after day, replaying the images in your head that you were not even there to witness. That is enough to cause a person to go crazy. Keeping your mind on other things is the only way to keep your sanity and slowly time will play its part and help you forget.
Edward Young was off fighting in the civil war, on the confederate side. On the battlefield, he was next to unshakable until one day he came across a man that seemed to have no soul and could not be stopped. He shot this solider a couple times in the chest, but he man would not stop. The lifeless eyes did not care about the imminent danger in front of him, only the meat that was on the bones of the men that were surrounding him. The man died, but not before infecting more soldiers with a bite that would change them forever.
The war ended and Edward arrived home to see that his wife had been eaten by the same man/thing that he had witnessed on the battlefield. Not being able to locate his boy, Edward took to the mountains, searching for his son and killing many of the undead the crossed his path. The numbers never seemed to diminish and when Edward finally found that his son was inducted into the zombie band, a choice had to be made. One picture that always calmed Edward down when he was on the killing field during the war was of a waterfall. He promised his son that he would be taken to this waterfall one day and a good father would never break a promise.
On his trek, Edward ran into another drifter, Isaac. Another war veteran, the two traveled together until Edward was captured by the remaining Confederate powers. The powers were trying to work on a cure for the strange outbreak that was taking over the nation. With only one doctor running the tests on survivors, the testing was cruel and not effective at all. General Williams was at the end of his rope, he needed to bring peace back to the area, there had to be a cure and if the good doctor was not going to find it, the General would just have to relieve him of his services. Isaac was able to rescue his new companion, along with his wife, Emma before either were infected by the plague. In the process however, Edward was shot in the chest. The couple had no other alternative than to take him to the local witch to be healed up.
Exit Humanity is a zombie tale that takes place at the end of the civil war. With the Confederate Army backed down, some of their leadership still thinks that the fighting is still going on, and the zombies are a trick sent down from the north. Edward, Isaac and Emma are all able to find shelter in the witch’s cabin, but not everything is as happy as it should be. Edward and Isaac protect the grounds around the cabin, the witch and Emma keep them fed, but they are being hunted by more than the undead. Emma had been bitten while in the Confederate prison and has not changed yet. She is immune and possibly the doctor could do something with her. General Williams will do anything to get her back and save his troops.
It is fun watching movies zombie movies based in a different time period. Sometimes the filmmakers get it right with the lack of technology being presented in the film. I might have a couple complaints about the firearms that were utilized in this movie being off a couple years, but the rest of it seemed right on. With a crazed general battling against two ex-military men, it makes for a fun romp through the woods until one or the other finial gets shot. Lots of head shots in this movie, not too much gore, but there shouldn’t be because you are following highly trained men surviving and doing what they are good at, killing. Stay Scared.
