Review: Nothing new in arty French zombie drama 'The Night Eats the World'

Director Dominique Rocher’s post-apocalyptic drama “The Night Eats the World” tries an unconventional approach … but not a fresh one. Anders Danielsen Lie plays Sam, who drops by his ex-girlfriend’s Paris apartment to pick up some things, then dozes off, waking up to find the city’s been struck with a run-of-the-mill “undead plague.” For the rest of the movie, Sam’s in survival mode, scavenging the building and staving off ghouls.
