Critic Reviews for Dance of the Dead
Never forgets its audience's sensibilities and makes for some truly great Halloween festivities...
A clunky, low-budget zombie send-up, Dance has heart and a few surprises, but it swallows patience by the pound, reheating screenplay leftovers and trying to disguise the results under the forgiving blanket of the horror genre.
while this is not quite Heathers, the high school setting allows for some amiable teen satire to give all those rotting corpses a certain freshness.
It's fast and funny, sick and sweet, geeky and gory. Basically, a whole lot of fun.
Audience Reviews for Dance of the Dead
High school graduation and zombies, yay. These are the quick zombies if one cares about that differentiation. And excepting one zpmbie make-out session that's gonna need more ketchup there's little here that hasn't been done elsewhere and much better. And that is that. Save it for later if you must.
One or two nice moments, but as a whole, meh.
From the title and the premise you can't really expect much from a 21st century high-school zombie romp. But this surprisingly delivers. It's funny, crazy and fast-paced entertainment. Jared Kusnitz plays a charming lead as Jimmy the reluctant hero. For a low-budget movie it ticks all the boxes in terms of a witty script, swift direction and a dynamic cast. It's actually captures the feel of the good old zombie films of the past. Ultimately its fun - the gore is humourous, there's satisfyingly cheesy one liners ('Where y'all going?' 'To the prom to kick some zombie ass') and clever set pieces (loved the contrast of the funeral home then the prom). For £5 for the DVD, fun is all it needed to be.
