Redefining “Slowness” in the Zombie Movie: CONTRACTED (England, 2013)

Contracted is a solid zombie movie with a fresh approach. It’s now run-o’-the-mill among zombie shows and films to show a character bitten, die and then instantaneously reemerge as a “walker” or “biter” on the flip side of death. But this movie shows the transformation as a painfully gradual process whereby the female body slowly succumbs to death. In short, the concept of “slow zombie movie” doesn’t just mean slow-moving zombies; it now means slow-dying victims as well.
