Reviews

The Daily Telegraph

Marc Lee

Reminders of Shaun of the Dead abound. However, an endearing cast and a satisfying mix of gore and gorblimey charm more than compensate.

Time Out

Nigel Floyd

This Zimmer-zomcom is as subtle as a brick in the gob, but it’s also a laugh riot.

Total Film

Paul Bradshaw

It might sound like a lazy idea for an iPhone game but a few fresh jokes and lashings of creative gore help it stand out from the shuffling crowd.

Empire Magazine

Ian Freer

It might feel familiar and never really reaches the heights of the films that inspired it, but amid the steady guffaws and the inventive grue, you feel it has its heart in the right place.

The Evening Standard

Charlotte O'Sullivan

All in all, the perfect complement to Julien Temple’s recent documentary, “London: The Modern Babylon”. There’s life in the capital yet.

The Observer

Philip French

It's a ragged film, indifferently acted, but not dislikable and occasionally quite amusing, as when West Ham zombies confront zombies from Millwall.

Edward Porter

It doesn’t have much of a spring in its step, either. There are a few funny bits, but mostly it just shuffles along.

The Guardian

Phelim O'Neill

Our young supposed heroes present a very tired and insulting version of cockneys – thick, aggressive and dishonest; introduced as bankrobbers, they put the viewer instantly on the side of the zombies.

The Financial Times

Nigel Andrews

The plot climaxes with the siege of an old people’s home containing what seems the entire Variety Club of Great Britain. Richard Briers, Honor Blackman, Dudley Sutton – what were you or your agents thinking of?
