A contemplative off-beat drama taking a very original look at how society copes with death.

October 6, 2004
A creative and intelligent recycling of the dead returning for non-horror purposes, but it runs into pacing problems toward the middle.

Leave it to the French to take all the fun out of a Zombie flick, overly intellectualizing even the most base of cinema forms.

Christopher Null
June 30, 2005
a kind of aborted film that's mostly about how paranoid people are, and not the mind-f*** that it really ought to have been
| Original Score: 3/5
