Critic Reviews for The Dead

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (7)

  • A long, chemistry-free slog through the zombified countryside.

    Oct 13, 2011 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…
  • The Dead, with its vast, pitiless landscapes and moral seriousness, is Night of the Living Dead reimagined as a Sergio Leone western. It's a knockout.

  • "The Dead," evocatively filmed in grainy 35mm, might carry the cinematic vibe of an old-school, flesh-eating adventure, but as it should be with stories like this, it's not a pretty picture.

    Oct 7, 2011 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Beyond its auspicious premise -- survivors fighting a zombie outbreak against the continent's scorching vistas -- there's little else to chew on here.

    Oct 6, 2011 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Film-makers Howard J Ford and his brother Jonathan have shot the scenery well, but since the undead are everywhere the quest for safety becomes repetitive.

    Sep 2, 2011 | Rating: 2/5
  • The low-budget zombie movie market may have long since reached saturation point, but this one displays some talent, style, intelligence and imagination, proving that in the right hands there's still plenty of life in the genre yet.
