It’s never a good sign when you’re an hour into the movie and still wondering when the plot described on the back of the DVD case is going to kick in. According to the synopsis, The Collapsed is about a family that “takes to the forest, only to discover the danger posed by other survivors may be the least of their worries”. Sounds cool, right? An inverse of the usual zombie movie motif of having a bunch of folks hole up somewhere and realize that the zombies weren’t as bad as the human element! But no, that movie never happens, and it’s not until the final 5 minutes (I’m rounding up) that anything but other survivors comes into play.
