It mostly juggles its inspirations instead, and its central conceit . . . is a trashily fun if not completely original gimmick, but it takes too long to show up.

B-Movie quality it is, which undoubtedly suits its tone. But it does beg the question, is it truly time to bury the Zombie genre?

A violent, rapid-fire, predictable-but-entertaining delve into one of my favorite sub-subgenres of horror, the Nazi zombie story.

Overlord is not only a killer genre shift film, but also a fantastic grindhouse throwback. The first half plays out like most WWII movies ... Once [one soldier] finds the lab, the horror kicks in and goes pretty much full throttle until the credits roll.

And while race isn't overtly mentioned in Overlord, it shouldn't be taken lightly that, in this era of heightened racist rhetoric, the hero in this battle against Nazi supremacy is a black man. He's Jesse Owens with a gun.

While occasionally cheesy, Overlord is an extremely solid World War II drama with a terrifying and exciting zombie twist. It'll keep you gripping the edge of your seat in suspense, and it delivers thrills in fresh and fun ways.

Overlord has everything that anyone could want from a zombie nazi film. An exhilarating yet traumatic experience that will excite your every emotion with fear, fury and fire.

Overlord is a visual and audible ecstasy for horror fans. The intense action sequences are jaw dropping and Overlord will likely be viewed as an explosive crowd-pleaser. However, the paper thin characters and stale acting leave a lot to be desired.

It's Hollywood's turn at bat with JJ Abrams producing Overlord, the latest example of this curious sub-subgenre, and one that delivers the goods and then some.

This is genre-bending at its finest when it comes to B-movies with A-quality production value, and I applaud the work done to make a killer war/action/horror flick with a pulse.

Director Avery is determined to create a horror/war movie that is unforgettable to lovers of both genres, and I think he makes it work.
