World of the Dead: The Zombie Diaries (18)

This catchily titled genre piece envisages – ho-hum – another apocalypse in which England is overrun by now-familiar legions of the living dead.

Putting up a fight is a group of Territorials, who dodge the "hostiles" across the snowbound countryside as well as the armed bandits – yet more wannabe horrors in thrall to Cormac McCarthy's The Road. The "diaries" part refers to the videocam wielded by one of the survivors, as ever an unlikely recording presence when everyone else is running and screaming.
