‘Intransigent’ as reviewed by Emily Thomas

Intransigent (Tom O’Brien) is a deeply atmospheric and evocative homage to the horror films of George Romero. The stylised use of light and colour furthers the tense atmosphere throughout, and precise sound editing immerses us in this apocalyptic world of zombies and violence. O’Brien, a horror aficionado, manages to maintain a consistent tension throughout, and pulls off a difficult genre by relying on the sensory rather than dialogue. Convincing zombie acting (a talent that is hard to come by) renders the events of the film all the more believable and makes for an absorbing watch.
