What do you get when you combine the deadly ninja with the horrific zombie? Amazing action sequences, suspense and scares, gore, violence and plenty of laughs! On the surface, Ninja Zombies is an action-comedy-horror film, or a zom-com with martial arts. At it's core, however, it's a film about friendship, growing up, and accepting responsibilities that you never wanted. Dameon, a young landlord with no real job or obligations, begins having nightmares - flashes from the life of a samurai on the run who tries to rid his world of an evil Hell Sword that could raise the dead (the Jigoku no Ken).

I thoroughly enjoyed watching "Ninja Zombies." I could tell the people who made this movie wanted to tell a fun story and even though the acting, plot, and special effects were not top notch I felt the movie had a lot of heart.
From the title I knew this would be a movie that did not take itself too seriously and I really love movies that are just for the sake of fun and entertainment.
I really got caught up in the story and was rooting for the heroes the whole way.
I was surprised how good Ninja Zombies themselves worked. It doesn't seem intuitive to combine Ninjas and Zombies, but it worked surprisingly well. I especially liked how the stunt players did Ninja moves with Zombie-like limitations and herky-jerky movements. Excellent physical acting!
I enjoyed every moment as I watched "Ninja Zombies" and I hope they make "Ninja Zombies II."
