Critic Reviews for The Revenant
Ultra-gory horror comedy squanders its intriguing premise of crime-stopping vigilante zombies with its uneven execution.
About 30 minutes too long and somewhat clumsily executed, this zombie's-eye-view story still manages to evoke the comic and splattery spirit of the best '80s cult horror flicks.
This small sleeper delivers a surprising number of pleasingly putrid punch lines.
Its anti-war sentiments are trafficked in like a subterfuge that blows up with unexpected force.
Audience Reviews for The Revenant
I am so happy to have seen this! This was the best film I saw at Toronto After Dark. For all those out there that are sick to bloody death (heh) of romantic touchy-feely vampire movies (whose titles rhyme with "skylight"), this is the film for you. A guy who wakes up on the night of his funeral to find that he's some sort of articulate zombie and makes his way back to his best friend's house. From there the pair piece together thier situation and do thier best to keep Bart "alive". Chris Wylde and david Anders have such great onscreen chemistry and it's very easy to believe that they're old friends. The effects are great, the jokes land squarely and the premise itself is wonderful. My only complaint might be that it stops being a comedy at one point, becomes full-on horror and never really comes back from the dark side. The very ending is pretty funny though, and I really can't wait to see this again when it comes out in theatres. I really really hope it gets a theatrical release. This is sure to become a cult hit.
A wildly uneven movie that works for the most part, with some really well pulled gags and others which are just a big miss. Worth a shot.
