Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Ultra-gory horror comedy squanders its intriguing premise of crime-stopping vigilante zombies with its uneven execution."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"This small sleeper delivers a surprising number of pleasingly putrid punch lines."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"one of the more unique approaches to such a story"
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"It's the best successor to Cemetery Man out there, for sure (much better than Dylan Dog!)."
‑ Staci Layne Wilson,
"[VIDEO ESSAY] Made in 2009, "The Revenant" finally finds its way to the big screen with a resounding thud."
‑ Cole Smithey,
"It's not hard to imagine this becoming a cult favorite."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"Its anti-war sentiments are trafficked in like a subterfuge that blows up with unexpected force."
‑ Scott Tobias, NPR
"The Revenant is a refreshing spin on the vampire/zombie genre and a true hidden gem."
‑ R. L. Shaffer, IGN DVD
"Ghoulishly repetitive and gore-laden, it's a flimsy fright farce that eventually becomes the walking dud."
‑ Susan Granger, SSG Syndicate
"What starts as funny and engaging winds up plodding and unfocused by the end."
‑ Josh Bell, Las Vegas Weekly
"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."
‑ Sara Stewart, New York Post
"By the middle of the second hour, you'll be wishing a zombie would just chomp off your head to end the pain."
‑ Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News
"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."
‑ Matt Donato, We Got This Covered
"A bit of a mess, but it's a consistently fun one, and that's more than most horror/comedies can say."
‑ Scott Weinberg, FEARnet
"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."
‑ Marc Savlov, Austin Chronicle
