Synopsis

Like a George Romero movie, or an installment of ‘The Walking Dead’ set in post-apocalyptic Qatar, ‘Qarar’ tells the suspenseful tale of a young married couple trying to survive an epidemic that has turned the population into zombies. While he battles the monsters, she hides a secret… Sparse use of CGI and a keen eye for atmosphere make this a great addition to the zombie myth.
