Movie Info

A cowardly shut-in named Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg) is forced to join up with a seasoned zombie slayer named Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson) in order to survive the zombie apocalypse. As Tallahassee sets out on a mission to find the last Twinkie on Earth, the duo meets up with Wichita (Emma Stone) and Little Rock (Abigail Breslin), two young girls who have resorted to some rather unorthodox methods to survive amidst the chaos.

All Critics (233) | Top Critics (41) | Fresh (209) | Rotten (24) | DVD (8)

For rambunctious laughs, you can hardly beat Zombieland, a pedal-to-the-metal mix of ghoul gore, smartmouth humor and filmmaking savvy.

Warts, entrails and all, I had a ball at Zombieland. It's 81 minutes of my kind of stupid.

Top Critic

Woody Harrelson has a rip-roaring time in this comic splatterfest as a redneck from hell who is out to kill zombies. It's the kind of genre acting that doesn't get much notice, but it's a gleeful rampage of a performance.

Wildly implausible, slightly scary and plot-lite though Zombieland is, it stands to add a few comic bons mots to popular parlance.

Scattershot but sharp, this postapocalyptic road comedy gives Shaun of the Dead a run for its money.

Director Ruben Fleischer has his eyes trained on the comic jugular, and he attains an astronomical laugh count from Rhett Reese and Paul Wernickat's fizzing, pop-savvy script.

Zombieland is a juicy, bloody and hysterical escapade that breaks all the rules -- even when everyone in it is trying to follow them.

Salt Lake Tribune

Zombieland succeeds because it doesn't aspire to be anything more than a smart, well-produced action flick with snappy dialogue and memorable characters.

Strap in for this one kids, and remember to avoid bathroom breaks, because Zombieland has arrived and it is going to chew up your eyeballs and spit them out.

Film School Rejects

Zombieland is an hilarious jaunt through a futuristic America ravaged by a contagion that has changed all but a lucky few into flesh-chomping predators.

Full Review… | September 22, 2014
Liverpool Echo

It is never properly scary. Mostly, it is just very silly, but because the film knows it is silly, it's all rather infectious and not the big, cliché-pumped bore it might otherwise have been.

The Spectator

It's a zombie movie. It's a teen romance. It's a comedy. It's a hunt for that most elusive of snack foods, the Hostess Twinkie. Welcome to Zombieland. Watch out for marauding cannibals, and fasten your seatbelts.

Full Review… | September 22, 2014

Zany, brainy and drop-dead funny, Zombieland is a marvel that might be this year's best horror film as well as its best comedy, rolled into one ooey, gooey mess.

Tulsa World

A smart, snarky take on battling the undead, this comic horror-thriller pokes fun at pop culture and piles on the gore.

People Magazine

Zombieland falls somewhere between affectionate parody and straight-up horror movie, but it keeps getting confused about what sort of movie it wants to be.

NOW Toronto

This well-rounded lark by first-time feature director Ruben Fleischer deftly juggles violence, humor and heart for a friendly, disarming package that still delivers the horrific body count that genre fans hunger for.

Austin American-Statesman

Wants to be nothing more than (yes, bad pun straight ahead) a bloody good time, and director Ruben Fleischer delivers exactly that with gusto.

Full Review… | January 27, 2014

It's slick, glossy and engaging, if nowhere near as clever as zom-com Shaun of the Dead.

Zombieland is downright delightful.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

A fun little romp, a mashup of "coming-of-age" and "zombie movie" that has enough of the latter to make up for the relative limpness of the former.

Full Review… | June 22, 2013

The last word in zombie movies -- funny, touching and romantic.

The zombie film has never been so funny or so cool.

It's Zombieland's delightfully offbeat characters that give the movie its staying power.

Audience Reviews for Zombieland


I havent laughed like this in a while. I just had a good time w this movie!! It was just a lot of fun!! what a move experience should be.

John Manard

Super Reviewer

This movie has many things I love: it's a zombie movie, it's a road movie, it's a horror comedy, it's gory, but at the same time, it has some substance, but it's not overbearing. Mostly this movie is just really fun and hugely entertaining, which is probably the most important factor. The script is decent, and contains the right amount of wit and quirk without seeming derivative. There's sone real cleverness with the title sequence and the presentation of Columbus' "rules"-they are flashy, yet remain the punctuation, not the sentence. The performances are great. Each player is perfect for their respective roles. Jesse Eisenberg rivals only Michael Cera for the king of deadpan geeky quirk. Harrelson is having the time of his life, and Stone and Breslin prove that chicks can be pretty and kick ass, too. It isn't for me as good as Romero's stuff or Shaun of the Dead, but it takes the best from each camp, and makes it into its own little thing. The wonderful not quite a surprise cameo around the middle definitely serves as the cherry on top of a beautiful mound of ice cream, but the soundtrack kicks much ass as well- especially the usage of one of my favorite songs by one of my favorite bands during the opening credits sequence.

Obviously I recommend this movie, so do yourself a favor, and check it out. There are far worse ways to spend a night at home.

Its nice to see another Zombie/Comedy film after the success of 'Shaun of The Dead'. Featuring a superb cast of Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone and a fantastic cameo from *SPOILER REMOVED*. 'Zombieland' also features both creepy scenarios and nice humour. For those who are any form of zombie fan, this is a nice guide for surviving the undead.

One of the stand out movies of 2009, funny, violent, zombie filled and most of all original.
