    This is an inventive and refreshing change from the usual zombie flicks, and although a slow starter, the film really picks up in the second half- and for its budget it also looks great. The performances are good, minus a possibly irritating cop to some that still manages to be amusing in his own right and become much more tolerable and funny on the films second watch!).

This is definately one for fans of b-movie sci-fi and horror, a la Peter Jacksons "Brain Dead". Undead seems to have gotten a poor meta score on the whole (albeit from mainly US critics) although has received some great reviews from elsewhere such as the uk and austrailia (perhaps its the type of humour thats putting the US off)?

    I'm totally agree with Igor. 'Undead' can really renew that thing at all. And I believe (and, sure, expect) we will hear 'Spierig Brothers' name again, very soon.

    This movie is far from perfect, but still it is pretty good. Great combination of comedy and horror. But the ending was kinda awfull.

    There's just one thing to say about this movie, Absolutely Unforgettable. A Masterpiece. Zombie's new era.

  1. 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.

    Precociously inventive horror pic that combines brain-eating zombies with outer space aliens.
  3. Watching it is a smidgen like listening to the same monkey-walks-into-a-bar joke for the 105th time, but for the Spierig brothers, it is clearly a demonstration of fast-cheap capabilities and a one-way ticket straight out of Queensland.
