Plot: No sooner has 15-year-old Lee Keegan been expelled from his private school than an apocalyptic event wipes out most of the world’s population. With his father dead and mother trapped abroad, Lee is given one instruction: go back to school. But safety and security at St. Mark’s School for Boys is in short supply. Its high walls can’t stop the local parish council from forming a militia and imposing marshal law, while inside the dorms the end of the world is having a dangerous effect on his best friend and his unrequited crush on the school nurse isn’t helping him concentrate on staying alive.

It was surprisingly quite good, but it could’ve easily been great
This is newb filmmaker Oliver Milburn’s second full length feature film as editor, writer and director, with only a few previous shorts on his resume. His main forte has been Visual Effects on some popular TV shows, and that talent was evident here.
The cinematography and his directing was very impressive, as was the score, landscape and sets. Casting and performances were all great and convincing. This story, adapted from the Schools Out novels by Scott K. Andrews, is cross between Lord Of The Flies, Shaun Of The Dead, Red Dawn and The Road. As a movie, Milburn’s screenplay certainly could’ve used some edits from a seasoned writer. It had some pacing and continuity problems, as well as some plot and technical issues. I felt some scenes were too long and/or unnecessary. I’m sure the sealed letter he held onto (no spoilers) for most of the first act was a metaphor, I think, but it wasn’t elaborated. In the 105 min runtime, “a lot” happens in the last 20 minutes, but anything prior felt too long and somewhat unnecessary. It would’ve been much better if his screenplay had more substance, and less filler, and extending (the best part) more than the 20 mins. Even cutting out much from the early parts and leaving the last 20 mins untouched but with the overall runtime no more than 85-90 mins, I would have enjoyed it much more.
Overall for a young newb filmmaker, this UK production was very well executed. Had the writing been tighter, it would have been great. Did I enjoy it enough to recommend it? Yes. Would I see it again? No.
don’t like them
Troublemaker Lee Keegan gets kicked out of an all-boys private school. Soon after, the world is hit with an apocalyptic pandemic and only those who have O neg blood type survive. He goes back to the school to rendezvous with his mother who is trying to journey home.
I have a tough time rooting for anybody other than the nurse. First, the main kid is a brat. He’s annoyingly whiney while trying to project boyish charms. His friend is a psychopath. The boys are mostly Lord-of-the-Flies proto-frat-boys. They spend their time drinking rather than preparing for the inevitable attack. Quite frankly, I’m surprised that they didn’t rape the paralyzed prisoner. The teacher is pathetic and arrogant. I don’t like most of these people. I do like the nurse’s final act. I like some of the action. It would help if Lee is a more likeable character.
