Fido Reviews

Nick Rogers
Suite101.com

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.

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

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

Fido finds a new wrinkle in the nearly exhausted zombie genre.

This set-up sounds like an amusing premise for a mild little low-budget spoof, but Fido is much more than that: it's a full-blown social satire with zombies at its center.

The filmmakers get darkly amusing mileage out of the notion of tamed zombies in suburbian servitude

Cute and witty, if a bit too dependent on its delightfully goofy storyline gimmick.

Fido is a fetching comedy with tongue-in-cheek social commentary and a quick wit.

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

Capital Times (Madison, WI)

One senses that zombie film kingpin George A. Romero, who satirized consumerism in "Dawn of the Dead," would smile like a proud papa if he saw it.

Starts with an excellent idea, but doesn't carry it far enough

If this movie's concept appeals to you at all, I urge you to reward the filmmakers by seeing in the theatre if at all possible. It's so small but so special. For you zombie fans, it's a great dessert after all the carnage, but it still delivers what we

Fido's humor comes from the clash of genres: bright cheery Americana butting up against the death and destruction of zombie horror.

Funny films have been in short supply lately. Don't miss this one.

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.

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

July 6, 2007

It's beautifully filmed (in the saturated primary colors of 1950s-style Technicolor), and it features a performance by the veteran Scottish actor Billy Connolly that's a small marvel of comic resourcefulness.

[Director Currie] never lets the commentary overwhelm the humor, and the echoes of Douglas Sirk melodramas and Lassie movies just add to the fun.

This spoof of 1950s attitudes is also a witty commentary on 21st-century issues such as homeland security and illegal immigration.

The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

Boasts a premise that might make for an amusing Far Side panel -- '50s suburbia with zombie servants -- and... doesn't do much else with it, actually.
