Consensus: Making the most of its thin premise, Fido is an occasionally touching satire that provides big laughs and enough blood and guts to please gorehounds.

Chicago Reader

This indie exercise is so stultifying you might want to check your own pulse.

Fido is a one-joke movie with some good performances and a few good gross-out moments. But it's not dark enough or sick enough to be a cult favorite.

Nick Rogers

Andrew Currie's script incisively observes how taboo preferences have become policies in the reality "Fido" creates. Macabre and satirical with the brash brio of all great zombie movies, "Fido" understands that the true ghouls' hearts are still beating.

It's a one-gag movie that starts off clever and cute, but wears thin after half an hour, and ultimately is like an excruciating Enzyte commercial for an hour and a half.

Time Out New York

A zombie comedy that feels late to the bloody punch bowl. Yet the real hindrance here isn't bad timing, but the movie's tiresomely chirpy 1950s Father Knows Best setting, which wears out its welcome in seconds.

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

Surprisingly gentle in most of its humor and its gore quotient, making you wonder who exactly it was aimed at.

Ty Burr
Boston Globe

The movie's breezy, blood-flecked entertainment, with no aim other than to give you a giggle and a shriek.

In the ticklishly amusing satire Fido, the undead stagger along like stunned toddlers.

Christian Toto
Washington Times

Fido finds a new wrinkle in the nearly exhausted zombie genre.
