American Zombie Reviews

The film satirizes well-intentioned socially conscious documentaries, examining how zombies have been integrated into the general population. It has a rewarding last half hour if the viewer can wait it out.

The best zombie movies shock us into a realization about ourselves and the world in which we live, but how much can zombies teach us when their world so closely resembles 1995?

It is essentially a one-joke premise and while it might have played beautifully as a 30-minute short subject, there just isn't enough to it to sustain itself as a 90-minute feature.

If Lee intended primarily to spoof documentary conventions, she should have chosen a theme less commercially overexposed -- and worked harder at making it more than just sorta-kinda humorous.

Performances vary widely in quality. Some of the "experts" who expound on zombie culture are portrayed by such amateurish actors that the film threatens to collapse.

A clever kind of documentary hybrid.

Proves that there's still lots of humor and insight to be found in the walking dead.

American Zombie is hands-down the best film I've seen so far this year.

A cleverly-comedic, high-concept adventure, artfully-executed, and thought-provoking, too!

American Zombie works on several levels of satire.

[Director] Lee covers all bases and when we least expect it, she also manages to sneak in a creepy zombie flick...

Lee's film proves that it's a genre as viable as ever, endlessly flexible and perpetually illuminating.

If you're looking for zombie horror, this is not the film for you (not enough gut-ripping and arm-chewing), but if you're looking for zombie fun, check it out.

Quippy send up of identity politics documentaries offers some occasionally biting moments.

Doesn't add much to the contemporary zombie genre or even the horror comedy genre but does provide light entertainment, especially if you like jokes about filmmaking.

Besides managing to be a statement on racism, a parody of a documentary, and an enjoyable character conflict between two egotistical directors, it's also a straight up zombie comedy!

Lee wants to make an up-with-dead-people portrait that shines light on how the diverse zombie community integrates into the city.

The mere fact that [director Grace] Lee can make both a media satire and, in the end, a creepy horror flick, while at least alluding to bigger social issues, suggests the breadth of her wit and intelligence.
