The Revenant kind of aspires to be a horror-comedy in the vein of Shaun of the Dead but keeps tripping on its own misanthropy.
August 16, 2012
The Revenant isn't funny or scary enough overall to be great, but with some good performances and an eleventh-hour upswing in the action, it's not bad enough to ridicule, either.

What starts as funny and engaging winds up plodding and unfocused by the end.

By the middle of the second hour, you'll be wishing a zombie would just chomp off your head to end the pain.

[VIDEO ESSAY] Made in 2009, "The Revenant" finally finds its way to the big screen with a resounding thud.

September 3, 2012
Ghoulishly repetitive and gore-laden, it's a flimsy fright farce that eventually becomes the walking dud.

It just sort of hangs around, trying to find its way, fun at times but mostly kind of lost.

Since Bart's bloodlust is never matched in tenor by his righteousness, the story remains rife with unfulfilled moral inquiry.

August 24, 2012
The film is a solid 15 minutes longer than it really needs to be and more annoying, The Revenant feels as though it longs to be an American riff on Shaun of the Dead.

Ultra-gory horror comedy squanders its intriguing premise of crime-stopping vigilante zombies with its uneven execution.
September 14, 2012
The Revenant is full of life and displays magnificent story telling from both a writing and directorial sense. It is one of the smarter horror comedies created in the past few years and well worth a watch.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10

A bit of a mess, but it's a consistently fun one, and that's more than most horror/comedies can say.

The Revenant is legitimately funny, inventive, and just plain cool.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
August 24, 2012
About 30 minutes too long and somewhat clumsily executed, this zombie's-eye-view story still manages to evoke the comic and splattery spirit of the best '80s cult horror flicks.

It's the best successor to Cemetery Man out there, for sure (much better than Dylan Dog!).

one of the more unique approaches to such a story

The Revenant is a refreshing spin on the vampire/zombie genre and a true hidden gem.

This small sleeper delivers a surprising number of pleasingly putrid punch lines.
