The Battery (2012)

The Battery is the story of two survivors, making their way across a decimated country. The country is overrun by the undead. Ben and Mickey have fled into the wilderness in the hopes that there will be less Zombies. Ben appears to be the more resilient, better prepared survivor. Mickey is a bit more fragile and not quite as ready to deal with the realities of the current world.

Spoilers Below

The story revolves around the two finding an old Volvo station wagon while trying to deal with each other. Nerves are raw, and they’ve been through a lot. Ben believes that the key to survival is to keep moving, but Mickey wants to settle down.

I Had To Kill The Dog

Ben and Micky are an odd couple. They knew each other pre Apocalypse, but weren’t really in the same social circle. The tension continues to grow the longer they are forced to survive together.

The Battery

The last act of The Battery has our two survivors trapped after Mickey gets to meet the woman on the other side of the radio. Sadly for him, things don’t go quite like he had imagined. I’m not going to ruin the end of the movie, because this is Worth Your Time and you should go watch it.

For such a small budget film, the actors and director did an amazing job. The whole thing was shot over the course of fifteen days for $6,000 in the wilds of Connecticut. Does that make it a passion project? How the hell did they make this film for that amount of money?

The Battery Scoring

The Battery isn’t your standard Zombie Movie, but it hits on multiple cylinders and has a little twist at the end, earning The Battery a 74/100. This makes it Worth Your Time. Make sure you watch to the end of the first segment of credits to make sure you get the full ending.

iZombie , Season 1, Episode 9

Patriot Brains kicks off with Liv leaving Lowell’s building just as Blaine is coming. She pulls her hood up to hide from Blaine as she leaves, but she now knows that her new boy toy is eating the brains of the teens that Major has been trying to help at the youth center. It only gets worse when Liv sees Julian and has vision from the breakfast brains she just ate in Lowell’s apartment. Julian and Blaine killed her breakfast.

28 Milliseconds Later

It only gets worse as Liv tries to sneak by. She looks into the back of Julian’s car and sees what can only by meals for Zombies.

Brains Delivery

Liv is horrified and stunned. How many people have died, and are going to continue to die to keep Blaine’s Zombies?

Zombie Rat Bites

While Liv is struggling with her moral dilemma, Ravi is taking his vitals, trying to figure out if his Zombie Rat bite is going to turn him. Liv tells Ravi that she saw her meal get murdered, but this is one of the kids that Suzuki supposedly found out at the cabin. It looks like team Ravi and Liv are about to start looking for the dirty Zombie Cop in the police department.

When Ravi goes to check up on Major, Major is watching a YouTube video on guns, and has what looks like a Beretta 92. It looks like Major is about to go on a Zombie hunt.

Major Gun Fetish

Meanwhile Liv has gone back to Lowell’s so she can confront him on where he gets his meals. Lowell says he hasn’t seen the violent visions and didn’t go looking them, but Liv isn’t letting him off the hook. She wants to know where he’s getting his brains, where Blaine’s base of operations is, which is the worst time ever for Lowell to drop the “I love you.” bomb. What an idiot.

Dead Paintballer

While Liv is confronting Lowell, a group of paintballers is out in the woods, but one of the targets gets killed in both worlds. He was already dead, but they tagged him anyway because they didn’t know at first.

Paintball Dead And Real Dead

As Ravi and Liv are examining the body Ravi let’s Liv know that Major is still focused on Julian as the Candy Man, but Major thinks its some weird body builder thing. Ravi’s just glad Major doesn’t think its Zombies.

After Liv has a snack of the victim’s brains, Clive and Liv begin to chase down the case.

With soldier brains onboard Liv feels the call to go play some paintball, and she kicks some butt on the field, at least until she finds the shell casing, but it doesn’t’ quite look like it was in the right place. The shell was between the tree and the body, but it doesn’t quite make sense because the shooter would have had to have been fifteen feet tall.

Meanwhile Major is trying to figure out how Julian was so strong. He thinks Julian’s gym would be a good start, and he only sounds mildly insane as he asks the gym trainer about eating brains to get jacked. This ends up backfiring when the trainer is talking about the incident later and Julian ends up overhearing. Major might be trying to find Julian’s source, but Julian is now trying to find him.

Back on the home front Lowell comes to beg forgiveness from Liv, and love will make you do crazy things, which is how he ends up agreeing to help Liv kill Blaine.

No Cross Species Transmission

As Ravi is telling Liv the good news that the Zombie Virus can’t jump species just before Clive shows up with some armed drone footage. They know how the shot came from where it did now. With a link to the victims’ ex wife’s new husband, who works on drones, they’ve got their murderer.

Later that night we see Liv and Lowell starting to enact their plan. With Liv’s sniper soldier brains on board, what better way to take Blaine out of the picture?

Blaine In The Crosshairs

Before we get to see if Liv is going to pull the trigger or not we cut over to Ravi’s house. Major has just gotten home, and the lights don’t’ work. He walks into the kitchen to find a maul on the table, but before he can wonder why, Julian has him. Julian wants to know who Major has told about his brains.

What The F*ck

Lucky for Major he’s still got his house keys in his hand and just barely escapes Julian’s initial attack, giving him just enough time to get to his bedroom and his Beretta 92.

Back on Sniper Hill, Liv chickens out, she just can’t pull the trigger. Come on, killing a killer doesn’t ruin you. You would have been doing the world a service!!! I can’t believe Liv chickened out.

Major calls Clive, afraid to call the police, but when Clive gets there Julian is gone, and there is no blood. Clive looks right at Major asks him about meds. Poor Major.


Back on Lowell’s deck Lowell, Liv’s new love interest decides that he’s going to finish what Liv couldn’t, and things don’t turn out so well for him. Blaine’s a killer, and he’s a thug.

Patriot Brains Score

Patriot Brains was another fun episode with some good twists and turns. I was going to give it an 80 but Liv not pulling the trigger cost it points with me, resulting in an episode that is still Worth Your Time at 74/100.
