In fits and starts it's faintly cool, though the tone is all over the place.

A fun and often creepy little zombie entry into the genre...

July 16, 2008
An amusingly outrageous Australian variation on the familiar zombie theme, played mostly for laughs.

Zombies galore, buckets of blood, and a non-stop action flick with quirky characters.

...we need more quality zombie films like this to show Hollywood how it should be done.

If the undead in this movie weren't so physically hideous, they'd be perfect for next year's season of "The Apprentice."

A comedic horror sci-fi mixture that manages to be sly, stupid, obvious, and creative -- often all at the same time.

Aliens, zombies, meteors, viruses, flying saucers -- you truly have to appreciate how these guys mixed genres and kept up a level of humor and action ...

[T]here's... an oddly poignant attempt to redeem a hackneyed genre from pointless insensitivity.

Directors Peter and Michael Spierig have a tendency to push the performances into camp, but that energy and slapstick mayhem helps keep the film racing along.

The plot keeps you guessing and is constantly throwing the characters off track; only the camp factor prohibits you from caring quite as much as you should.
Rob Blackwelder
July 6, 2005
What the movie lacks in clarity it makes up for in gallons of campy gore. Undead sure ain't art, but it sure is fun.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
Pamela Troy
July 5, 2005
Offers both a broadly funny Australian spin and a unique attempt to make sense out of the senseless conventions of zombie films
Tim Cogshell
Boxoffice Magazine
July 5, 2005
Though it sometimes veers toward the ludicrous, at least it's never uninteresting.

A modestly budgeted but precociously inventive horror pic that combines brain-eating zombies with outer space aliens.

Say what you will about the way Undead looks, sounds and feels: it tells a good story. Someone else might have told it better, but what the hell.

That said, it's still a lot of fun and the film combines some impressively gory set-pieces with smartly-written characters and some hilarious lines

Shadows on the Wall
November 18, 2004
Absolutely unhinged in a way only Australian filmmakers can ever get right.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
Brian Mckay

While the final act may leave you scratching your head, you should get enough laughs and good, campy gore along the way to have made it worth your trip.
