Extinction is set in the forgotten snow-covered town of Harmony, nine years after an infection turned most of the humanity into rabid creatures. Patrick (Matthew Fox), Jack (Jeffrey Donovan) and Lu (Quinn McColgan), a nine-year-old girl, survive in seeming peace and there.
It’s nonetheless sensed that something terrible happened between Patrick and Jack because a deep hate keeps them apart. When the infected appear again, they will have to leave behind all rancor to protect the one being who means more to them than anything else.
And suddenly, overnight, the world came to a halt. Two men, two survivors, one kid, and hatred that separates them. A place forgotten by everyone, including the creatures that inhabit the Earth… until now.
Extinction turns into another zombie film, but it looks like enjoyable hokum, and is directed by Miguel Ángel Vivas, who also wrote the script with Alberto Marini, based on the novel “Y pese a todo…”, written by Juan de Dios Garduño.
