Gonzalo Lopez-Gallego‘s Open Grave (2013) was an okay zombie horror movie that we reviewed a couple months ago, plenty of zombies. You keep going back and forth on who the real bad guy is through fragmented memories. The cover art for the Blu-ray and DVD release on July 15, 2014 looks good but the special features looks very thin. All we get is a behind-the-scenes featurette. Open Grave stars Sharlto Copley, Thomas Kretschmann and Josie Ho.
From the Press Release:
Featuring genre favorites Sharlto Copley (District 9, Elysium) and Joseph Morgan ("The Originals," "The Vampire Diaries"), the zombie apocalypse film that takes psycho thrillers in a new direction, Open Grave, awakens on Blu-ray and DVD July 15 from Cinedigm (NASDAQ: CIDM) and Tribeca Film. Directed by Gonzalo L?pez-Gallego (Apollo 18), the dark and twisted thrill ride also stars Thomas Kretschmann (Wanted, Resident Evil: Apocalypse), Josie Ho (Contagion), Erin Richards (The Quiet Ones) and Max Wrottesley ("24: Live Another Day").
A complicated story that pits characters against each other, Open Grave examines how important memory is to a person’s identity by forcing six strangers--stripped of all recollection--to confront their inner demons. While these strangers seek to identify their past, evil demons lurk beneath them, forcing them to fight for survival, even if it means betraying their allies.

Official Synopsis: A man wakes up in a pit of dead bodies with no memory of who he is or how he got there. Fleeing the scene, he breaks into a nearby house and is met at gunpoint by a group of terrified strangers, all suffering from memory loss. Suspicion gives way to violence as the group starts to piece together clues about their identities, but when they uncover a threat that's more vicious - and hungry - than each other, they are forced to figure out what brought them all together - before it's too late.
