Impressions

 

I Am Alone uses part Found-Footage and part traditional cinematography style. The Found-Footage aspect is refreshing from many other productions that use this medium. They have brought in Mason for questioning about what happened during their expenditure. He’s forced to review found footage that may answer questions to what happened to Jacob. Meanwhile, the city is under attack by the walking dead creatures.

The story plays out great as we follow Jacob and witness the nightmare that unfolds around him and his own slow progression following infection. We get one of the most in-depth, intense transformations I have seen in a zombie film. The audience connects with Jacob on a deep emotional level.

 

The tone of this film is personal and intimate. The camera angles are subject-focused, making this production one of the most emotional of its theme. What’s also interesting is the zombies, which appear to still be semi-human. This is observing of their demeanor; like their conscience is still intact despite their state.DecayMag.com. Robert A.

In Conclusion

 

I Am Alone is an intense Found Footage film that’s filled with Drama and Suspense. Most zombie films trying to influence the audience with high violence and gore. Robert A. Palmer digs deeper into the psyche with a more intimate and emotional story.DecayMag.com. Robert A. Palmer, Michael A. Weiss, I Am Alone
