The contaminated pause for simply 32 seconds after every assault…

Our view: Although it’s removed from unique in idea, recalling 28 Days Later (as does Hernán González’s wonderful rating), Virus: 32 has sufficient fashion and vibrancy to maintain viewers . The deal with one location, a run-down well being membership, was in all probability required for budgetary causes however Gustavo Hernández utilises it nicely. Green hues are contrasted with orange and redness to point hazard which appears to lurk in each darkish nook. The 32 seconds respite alluded to within the title is exclusive but stays surprisingly underused by way of the general plot.
The fragmented alcoholic mom (Iris)-daughter (Tata) relationship that originally appears to be on the coronary heart of the movie shifts focus. And because the frenetic motion swiftly develops it turns into apparent that it’s not simply the contaminated to be feared. Virus: 32 is a good entry into the overdone zombie sub-genre that’s nicely price a watch. Adrian J Smith, MOVIES and MANIA
“Fear stalks the shadows and danger lurks around every corner. This is where Gustavo Hernández’s film excels. It doesn’t quite manage to carry it off though and the longer it goes on the more stretched the premise becomes. Feeling like a game adaption at times and the conceit is rather flimsy.” Backseat Mafia
“The movie is made from a small cast in a single location, yet the production feels bigger than it is. There’s a requisite amount of substance to the setup and to the characters so the plot doesn’t feel shortchanged and the script doesn’t seem skimpy even though the 89-minute runtime breezes by.” 70/100 Culture Crypt
“While it’s not quite as revolutionary as what came before it and has a nasty habit of being cruel for cruelty’s sake, it’s a genuinely frightening, pulse-pounding reminder of the zombie’s storied place in horror history.” 4/5 Dread Central
“The movie itself is relentlessly generic, but Hernandez, who’s known for the atmospheric single-shot horror film, The Silent House, has injected that level of creativity into Virus: 32, extending it beyond the easily recognizable recycled material that it is. I think there isn’t a whole lot we haven’t seen from zombie films at this point.” Horror Obsessive
“It had the potential to deliver some suitable kills and practical effects thanks to its makeup team (which did a fine job in the film). Albeit the movie holds back a little bit and shies away from pouring the buckets of crimson red onto the screen. Ultimately, Virus: 32 works in parts, not wholly, because there are segments where it achieves its true potential, and there are others in which it makes us question that stylistic or directorial decision.” Loud and Clear
“Fermin Torres’s sometimes creeping, sometimes soaring camera generates anticipation and dread in equal measure. Security footage — often a lazy gimmick in a horror movie — gets real purpose and style here. Likewise, the poorly lit passages, shadowy staircases and rooms reflecting leakage and rot create an atmosphere of decay that suits the effort.” 3.5/5 Maddwolf
Hernández offers us the concept he’ll do the surprising, and that it gained’t be fairly. But that’s not precisely true, as this can be a fantastically shot movie — gloom, smoke, smoke bombs and shadows dominate the visible palette […] The 32-second factor supplies one dandy suspenseful sequence.” 2.5/4 Movie Nation
” …a bit of too express in its influences, with a being pregnant subplot lifted straight from Snyder’s Dawn of the Dead and a soundtrack that owes a major debt to John Murphy’s propulsive rating for 28 Days Later. If it by no means lives as much as its premise, it does no less than present the occasional well-executed, economical set-piece, and its unconventional heroine gives one thing totally different.” 3/5 The Movie Waffler
“Virus: 32 is another entry into an overdone niche that gets the job done through competent storytelling with an emphasis on trauma, monster terrors and hasty pacing that sprints ahead with berserker fierceness. It’s too familiar to be outstanding, but fulfilling enough as a reliable treat.” Paste
“We do not want to diminish other moments by saying that they’re textbook thriller/horror moments, because in the small number of films Hernández has made he has proven he is good at setting up moments for tension and pacing things properly. However, apart from some tried and true thrills and chills there are also times when you have to put two and two together.” Screen Anarchy
“While it is a very familiar story, Virus: 32 does tell it quite well and manages to deliver a couple of harrowing sequences along the way. It’s a solid film…” Voices from the Balcony
” …it shares most of the problems with different completely pleasing zombie horrors, with a few of the identical unanswered questions, tolerable frustrations and budgetary constraints […] but director Gustavo Hernández has managed a good film with some good composition, an intriguing, if underplayed concept, a likeable set of leads and an affordable stability between homage and improvement.” Warped Perspective
Notes: We’re unsure why IMDb and a few web sites are referring to the movie as Virus-32 as a result of the onscreen title is clearly Virus: 32.
