A new friend on Facebook, Karishma Patel, suggested I join the group “The Sky Has Fallen – New Horror Movie.” I’m always game to learn about new horror movies, so I checked it out.
Once I did I not only joined the group but knew I’d have something to feature for Movie Monday today.
If you like zombie/apocalyptic type movies, you might like the looks of The Sky Has Fallen too, a “post-apocalyptic love story.” There’s a genre combo for you!
Here’s the premise:
In a post-apocalyptic world, a new disease wipes out almost all of mankind within a couple hours. Trying to avoid infection, people flee to remote locations, but they start seeing mysterious black figures, carrying away the dead and experimenting on them. Now, Lance and Rachel, two survivors determined to fight back, must kill the leader of these creatures before the rest of humanity disappears.
Here’s a snippet of the review written about it on Behind the Couch:
Described as a post-apocalyptic love story, The Sky Has Fallen weaves together a number of genres and conceptual motifs to create an engaging, thoughtful and highly atmospheric film. The atmosphere is enhanced by the unusually lush and poignant string based score courtesy of James Sizemore.
