Critic Reviews



Based on 20 critic reviews provided by Metacritic.com
What really grabs your attention about Undead, however, are the effects. For a movie budgeted under $1 million, the Spierigs have done an amazing job putting together believable visuals.
New York Post
A campy, low-budget Romero homage that's badly in need of editing.
There's nothing under the goofball gags and gushing gore, and its welcome is worn out well before it's over.
The Hollywood Reporter
The over-the-top tone gets stale awfully quickly -- especially once it becomes clear that it's all wacky style over any real attempt at substance.
As always, there's the combustible band of mismatched survivors.
The kind of movie that would be so bad it's good, except it's not bad enough to be good enough.
In Undead, sadly, rigor mortis has set in.
At best a little boring and at worst stomach-churningly offensive.
New York Daily News
Gore fans will dig the makeup effects and some of the tongue-in-cheek slice-&-dice.
Chicago Tribune
If only they didn't cannibalize their source material so much, then take an extreme rule reversal just before the end credits, they might have achieved something original, rather than just a fan-fiction derivation of George A. Romero's canon.
Entertainment Weekly
On the level of a no-budget student film in which the shots barely match up into sequences. It's about as much fun as watching blood dry.
