      By all intents and purposes I think almost all people involved set out to make a hilarious movie. The problem was whoever directed this movie has a terrible sense of comedic timing and editing. Because, while the jokes seem obvious and often times funny in retrospect, their presentation leaves a lot to be desired--and somewhere somehow this film could be better. The comedic acting talent in this film is great. There's no reason why this film should be so un-funny (it's not scary either by the way). But if you brave this film despite my discouragement you'll spend most of the time puzzling over how this many funny people who have been funny before can read off jokes like they are spit balling moments for a script for another movie that they'll make when they have more time to get the timing right. Anyway, this looked good on paper and probably, to most of you, good on trailers and posters. But you might be better off with any other comedy, horror film, or horror comedy that is out there. It's not the worst film, but it's not successful at any of the things it aims for.

      Cool Zombie flick, similar style as Zombieland

      A pretty funny zom-com much like Zombieland, with crass humor and outrageously inept subject matter. *SPOILERS* Mainly that our lovable zombie horde this time, are children that have fallen ill after consuming an infected batch of chicken nuggets. *END SPOILERS* As implausible as this situation could ever be, the dynamics of poking humor at it were achieved quite well, which leads to some gory and very impractical methods of staving off the zombie horde. The movie never quite becomes frightful at any moment, but if one purchases the Bluray or DVD, there are a couple of deleted scenes, particularly with original and alternate endings that "echo" the mood from the nostalgic & creepy conclusion of NOTLD. I enjoyed the film although I did find it a notch below Zombieland, but still a recommended view for zombie enthusiasts, horror movie buffs, or even fellow fans of the Walking Dead series. 4 Stars

      Knew a bit about this film before I purchased it. One of my friends was the DP...so I knew it would look good. The cast is comprised of comedic actors so I knew they'd translate the humor of the script well. Leigh Whannell, co-creator of Saw and Insidious, co-wrote it so I knew the horrific elements of the script would suit my horror needs. With all that said, I was surprised how much I laughed during this film. It's kinda reminiscent of another Elijah Wood film, The Faculty. However for Wood the shoe is on the other foot and the students are trying to eat him. If that sounds like a flick you'd enjoy, pick this up.

      Wonderful horror/comedy. It’s an almost perfect combination of both. The characters are all so very unique and identifiable, the script is equal hilarious and scary, and the gore is perfect. It’s The Faculty, but flipped and a comedy. I wish it was 20 minutes longer, there’s so much more this movie could have dine, but instead they got in, told their story, and got out in a very neat 90 minutes. Horror fans, this is a must watch!

      Based on the trailer I was executing a horror movie with zombie kids, this was not really that. This was the story of a teacher who wants to be a writer that moves home to teach just when the bad chicken nuggets come along and zombify kids. Few gross scenes, few funny scenes but overall not enough of either, renting would be the better choice. Also the ending was unsatisfying.

      Its not perfect but at least delivers what it promises (gore, comedy and fun). Elijah Wood and Alison Pill are very good in their performances but the best part is Rainn Wilson by far. If you like the genre of zombies or infected give this movie a chance.

      Great Moments but Not a Great Movie

      Anyone interested in the premise of this film should check it out, but keep in mind that it only contains about an hour's worth of solid horror-comedy. There are several excellent gags and the characters are likeable for the most part. The film simply continues to run out of steam as it goes along.

      I heard a lot of negative things about this movie, so I went into it with low expectations. This movie far exceeded the low expectations I had set! It's hilarious. It has a perfect balance of comedy and gore, and is very entertaining. Elijah Wood has become one of my favorite horror actors lately!
