I will not ruin this movie for viewers as it is just coming out.
I will say that this is the quietest and most subtle take on viral/zombie outbreak films I have seen. Three quarters of the film is mostly silence, but the more quiet things become, the more you strain to hear any noise from the screen. This is a good thing as it draws you into the very quiet world inhabited by the characters as they attempt to find a safe haven.
A number of the tropes associated with these films are here, but don't expect them to be by the numbers. This film applies fine twists and turns to what we expect to see.
It is glorious.
It is French-Canadian, so the dialogue is in French, but there isn't a whole lot to deal with, and the version I saw had English subtitles, so you should be fine.
It makes for a great film in general, but it is easily one of the best horror films I have seen in years.
