Subtle? No, but it's clever and funny in a thoroughly reimagined alternate universe, where the paternal smiles of authority figures hide an unchecked police state keeping the gated communities white, middle class, and compliant.

Pretty funny, surprisingly smart, pleasant to look at, and often quite sick.

Andrew Currie's script incisively observes how taboo preferences have become policies in the reality "Fido" creates. Macabre and satirical with the brash brio of all great zombie movies, "Fido" understands that the true ghouls' hearts are still beating.

Surprisingly gentle in most of its humor and its gore quotient, making you wonder who exactly it was aimed at.

This set-up sounds like an amusing premise for a mild little low-budget spoof, but Fido is much more than that: it's a full-blown social satire with zombies at its center.

Fido is a fetching comedy with tongue-in-cheek social commentary and a quick wit.
September 27, 2007
One senses that zombie film kingpin George A. Romero, who satirized consumerism in "Dawn of the Dead," would smile like a proud papa if he saw it.

If this movie's concept appeals to you at all, I urge you to reward the filmmakers by seeing in the theatre if at all possible. It's so small but so special. For you zombie fans, it's a great dessert after all the carnage, but it still delivers what we

Fido's humor comes from the clash of genres: bright cheery Americana butting up against the death and destruction of zombie horror.
July 7, 2007
Funny films have been in short supply lately. Don't miss this one.
July 6, 2007
The movie's breezy, blood-flecked entertainment, with no aim other than to give you a giggle and a shriek.

It's beautifully filmed (in the saturated primary colors of 1950s-style Technicolor), and it features a performance by the veteran Scottish actor Billy Connolly that's a small marvel of comic resourcefulness.
July 5, 2007
