Does ‘Another World’ Remind Anyone Else of ‘Five Characters in Search of an Exit’?’

There’s a classic Twilight Zone episode concerning five unusual people trapped in a strange space and their search for answers as to who, and where, and why they are, called ‘Five Characters in Search of an Exit’.

So when I read a synopsis of a new and apparently Anti-Zombie movie also featuring five very distinct and apparently symbolic characters trapped together, I’m getting deja vu:

There are five characters, which are still uninfected, trying to survive constant attacks by the infected. Each one of them represents in some way a different aspect of human existence, a different world-view, but most important, a different moral view about the world and his/her place in it -

The film follows the struggles of our five “heroes” as they adapt and attempt to survive not only the Undead, but each other!

Due to the precise nature of the characters, I sort of doubt that it’s the same twist ending as the Twilight Zone episode, but you never know where inspiration comes from sometimes.
