No amount of Zombie Rules can explain a movie like this, or the recent filmmaker fascination with a creaky old genre.

A low-budget, mildly enjoyable oddity.

Rigor mortis has set in.

Terry Lawson

Top Critic IconTop Critic

The film's genre-merging cleverness works against it, and releasing it in the wake of George Romero's zombie knockout Land of the Dead invites comparisons that may be unfair but inevitable.

There are about 2,000 hard-core Fangoria readers in the Bay Area who are going to absolutely love this film. But the 6,698,000 other residents will find it at best a little boring and at worst stomach-churningly offensive.

The plot's standard-issue, owing much to zombie movies that have staggered before this one.

Seeing people die in funny ways loses interest after a bit.

However visually striking, this Australian film is ultimately as tedious as it is derivative.

The storyline becomes pretty tedious, thanks to an incredibly slow beginning and a scenario based entirely on running around in circles to get away from the undead.

The film will frighten only those with phobias about boredom and amuse only viewers with expectations lower than the filmmaker's miniscule budget.

Away from the killing field, the Spierigs' actors prove themselves to be the most zombie-like, devolving into a din of screechy bickering that'll leave you running for the exits.

The kind of movie that would be so bad it's good, except it's not bad enough to be good enough.

Despite its clever low-budget visual style and campy sensibility, Undead is just too derivative to go on as long as it does.

While the low-budget film serves up a remarkably cost-effective arsenal of wild visual effects, the over-the-top tone gets stale awfully quickly.

Lou Lumenick

A campy, low-budget Romero homage that's badly in need of editing.

It's downright boring for an hour, then picks up, at least visually, when the zombified are hauled into space and hung there as if in a cosmic closet.

A stale, derivative mess that borrows heavily from every zombie and alien movie worthy of imitation, to only ho-hum effect.

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

Flesh-eating fish notwithstanding, Peter and Michael Spierig's low-budget schlock-horror parody brings precious little new to the undead genre.

Watching it is a smidgen like listening to the same monkey-walks- into-a-bar joke for the 105th time, but for the Spierig brothers, it is clearly a demonstration of fast-cheap capabilities and a one-way ticket straight out of Queensland.
