It isn't easy to mix horror with comedy but here it works.
16 November 2017 | by homecoming8See all my reviews

After having seen a couple of bad low budget horror films, I wasn't expecting much here but was pleasantly surprised. Yet another zombie horror/comedy in the tradition of classics like "Return of the Living Dead" and "Shaun of the Dead". We've seen quite a few of those in the last years but most aren't even worth watching. "Night Watchmen" is certainly not in the same league as the titles mentioned below but this low budget version has a lot to offer.

Besides James Remar (48 Hrs, Dexter) the cast is unknown but the leading characters are believable and funny at the same time. Well written funny dialogue. The mixture of gore and comedy is well done with a couple of hilarious scenes. If you don't like films like "Return of the living Dead" than you shouldn't even bother. Otherwise, worth checking out. Wouldn't mind a sequel..
