A 666-Character Review Of ‘Here Alone’
Ann lives a solitary life in a camp, constantly working to stay alive on meager resources. The story alternates between the present and the start of the zombie plague where she, her husband, and her baby escape the city. From the beginning, Ann was willing to try to help people even when it’s more risky than ever. A hurt father and traumatized daughter collapse in the road by her camp and she cares for them. Zombies aren’t seen often, but their mark on the world is in every scene. The slow pace and quiet tone are tinged with dread even when it seems safe. The zombies are brutal and fast, so Ann is forced to have specific distractions and routes planned whenever she salvages for supplies. Here Alone focuses on relationships over zombies in an emotional journey that still has tense moments of horror.
