What to Know

Critics Consensus

This low-budget homage to the zombie genre borrows heavily from superior predecessors and revels in a pile of its own campiness -- neither original nor watchable enough to entertain.

Empire Magazine Rated: 2/5 Apr 1, 2006 Full Review Nick Schager Lessons of Darkness There's barely a brainwave in Undead. Rated: C- Sep 10, 2005 Full Review Michael Booth Denver Post No amount of Zombie Rules can explain a movie like this, or the recent filmmaker fascination with a creaky old genre. Rated: 1/4 Jul 15, 2005 Full Review Tim Brayton Alternate Ending In its zeal to be more than just a zombie film, it loses sight of what makes a zombie film work in the first place. Rated: 1.5/5 Jul 20, 2020 Full Review Debbie Lynn Elias Behind The Lens [A]n admirable job of providing almost every zombie effect known to mankind, yet fall[s] short when it comes to deciding if the film is to be interpreted as a parody or to be taken for the seriousness of the zombie situation. Nov 3, 2019 Full Review Adele Hartley The List The Spierig brothers aim high, and have managed to create (on a criminally low budget) an exuberant, absurd wake. Rated: 4/5 Apr 23, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews

Chris S Loved This Movie Very Original And Better Then So MANY American Zombie Movies,Great Splatter And Gore Good Story And For Me The Australian Humour Had Me In Stiches,Must See Movie Very Well Done One A Shoe String Budget! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 10/21/22 Full Review justin t The gore is joyful in its entirety but tragically that is all that this film has going for it. The story is a bit confusing and boring. The acting is fine and there are some funny moments as well as some violent moments. This sadly fails to capture even half the spirit of Peter Jackson's early frolics in black comedy. Impressive considering the roots and background of this but otherwise mildly disappointing. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Joel C This film is a bit tough to get through, the characters are pretty unlikeable and not the best acting. The directors seem to be going for some sort of quirky comedy type world which isn't executed very well. The action and gore scenes just never seem to be what their trying to achieve (why don't they shoot for the head?), and that three barrel shotgun just seems to be a waste of ammo. I read somewhere that they did the FX themselves, and for that I give them props because some of it looks really cool and continues to build til the end. I liked the look of the alien and the sky scenes. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 05/07/21 Full Review Audience Member Campy zombie/alien invasion pic tries really, really hard. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member mala y pendeja y aburridora. No la terminé de ver Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Lol What a wacky fuckin movie! So ridiculous and out there, but loads of Zombie fun.
