Cockneys vs Zombies
As one might expect, the flashy UK remake of Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn’s Pusher ends up being a mostly pointless exercise, adding a tonne of shallow style but very little substance to the proceedings.

With the final slate of 2012 Toronto After Dark films upon us, we continue our coverage with looks at the zom-com Cockneys Vs. Zombies, the apocalyptic Korean sci-fi flick Doomsday Book, the country splat fest Inbred, the LARP comedy Lloyd the Conqueror, and the zombie found footage sequel REC 3: Genesis.
