      Joe Leydon Variety The sort of overplayed and under-written trifle that too often results when tongue-in-cheeky filmmakers purposefully set out to make a “midnight movie.” Oct 29, 2023 Full Review David Nusair Reel Film Reviews ...undoubtedly benefits from the inspired casting of Brian Posehn as a blood-thirsty zombie. Rated: 2.5/4 Jan 15, 2008 Full Review Scott Weinberg FEARnet One can't help but feel that the screenplay needed three or four more polishes before production got rolling. Rated: 2/5 Jan 8, 2008 Full Review David Cornelius DVDTalk.com If a movie has to tell you up front that it's going to be funny, it's not going to be funny.

      Richard H This is by far one of the most underrated movies in zombodies. It's funny as it is original which it very much is. Good plot, enjoy it if you can find it! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 11/24/23 Full Review Audience Member What the **** is this ****?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOLings!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member There are a few things I have to admit in this review before beginning. 1. I am watching a film Starring Chris Kattan in 2019 that isn't Undercover Brother. 2. I have seen this film more than once. Well, those are the only two things, but still, they are pretty unlikely. I mean a western with zombies in it, that's a low budget comedy...with Chris Kattan. The odds were not in favor of this watch. Joking aside, I actually don't mind this film. There are some actual funny parts, and Chris Kattan doesn't bother me for the whole film. Mind you he is basically playing the spastic down on his luck weirdo that he does in every movie, but it still kind of worked. Now, when I say worked, I mean in a b-movie low budget way. Undead or Alive is a far reach from being a good film. Entertaining for what it is...Yes, I'll go with that. The movie follows two cowboys and a Native woman, who just happens to Geronimo's niece as they try to escape an evil man in black style killer they stole from. The thing is, he was bitten by a zombie and for some reason, he and his zombie posse have kept most of their minds intact. As villains go the zombie man in black was pretty fun, as he can be shot and basically killed over and over without actually dying, leading to some fun banter later in the film. I do question what Geronimo would think about using the memory of his life to make of plot of a zombie film made with a low budget though. See, it's Geronimo's curse that has made all the zombies in the west. So it was obviously based on real movie facts. Anyways, Undead or Alive isn't a great film, or really even a good film. But I was entertained on more than one occasion, so I would recommend it for those looking for a tamer bad movie night. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member Dumb but funny if you go into it expecting nothing. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member Mildly amusing, but fairly poor as part of the zombie genre. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member Some how it's as watchable as it is. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Read all reviews
