Fido (2007)

AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Making the most of its thin premise, Fido is an occasionally touching satire that provides big laughs and enough blood and guts to please gorehounds.

All Critics (73) | Top Critics (18)

This indie exercise is so stultifying you might want to check your own pulse.

It's a one-gag movie that starts off clever and cute, but wears thin after half an hour, and ultimately is like an excruciating Enzyte commercial for an hour and a half.

Top Critic

The movie's breezy, blood-flecked entertainment, with no aim other than to give you a giggle and a shriek.

Top Critic

Fido is a one-joke movie with some good performances and a few good gross-out moments. But it's not dark enough or sick enough to be a cult favorite.

Andrew Currie's script incisively observes how taboo preferences have become policies in the reality "Fido" creates. Macabre and satirical with the brash brio of all great zombie movies, "Fido" understands that the true ghouls' hearts are still beating.

Surprisingly gentle in most of its humor and its gore quotient, making you wonder who exactly it was aimed at.

Nothing like zombie milk men. This was one of the best zombie comedys ive seen yet. Carrie Ann Moss did a turn that i hadnt seen in her and the whole concept was just good fun.

Very funny and somewhat original zombie movie. Really enjoyed it and what a surprise, an original and entertaining movie that has nothing to do with the Hollywood crap conveyor.
