Watch It Now
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.
By the middle of the second hour, you'll be wishing a zombie would just chomp off your head to end the pain.
The Revenant is a refreshing spin on the vampire/zombie genre and a true hidden gem.
The Revenant is full of life and displays magnificent story telling from both a writing and directorial sense. It is one of the smarter horror comedies created in the past few years and well worth a watch.
It's the best successor to Cemetery Man out there, for sure (much better than Dylan Dog!).
Ghoulishly repetitive and gore-laden, it's a flimsy fright farce that eventually becomes the walking dud.
A bit of a mess, but it's a consistently fun one, and that's more than most horror/comedies can say.
[VIDEO ESSAY] Made in 2009, "The Revenant" finally finds its way to the big screen with a resounding thud.
The film is a solid 15 minutes longer than it really needs to be and more annoying, The Revenant feels as though it longs to be an American riff on Shaun of the Dead.
Already a genre festival favorite, this dark comedy, in which a soldier killed in Iraq comes back from the grave a blood-drinking zombie, will appeal to horror fans looking for something a little different, but may have trouble crossing over.

- Joey: Bart, you're clearly not Bigfoot. You're way too short, you're not covered in hair, and your feet are too small.
- Joey: Is he dead... dead dead?
- Joey: He smells dead, at lest.
- Bart Gregory: I'm decomposing.
- Mathilda: Heaven's just a Christian's recruiting tactic.
