When deadly meteorites start striking the calm, peaceful community of Berkeley, Australia, a ragtag group of strangers fight for their lives against a hoard of red-blooded zombies that have mysteriously infected the residents. Headed by the town's ex-beauty queen Rene (Felicity Mason) and the village kook, Marion (Mungo McKay), the clan of survivors battle their way through farmhouses, bomb shelters, and back roads until they are faced with a much bigger problem than just the gut-munchers on their trail.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"No amount of Zombie Rules can explain a movie like this, or the recent filmmaker fascination with a creaky old genre."
‑ Michael Booth, Denver Post
"Rigor mortis has set in."
‑ Ty Burr, Boston Globe
"In fits and starts it's faintly cool, though the tone is all over the place."
‑ Rob Gonsalves, eFilmCritic.com
"Undead isn't a joke - it's a punchline. Where's the setup?"
‑ Rob Humanick, Projection Booth
"...we need more quality zombie films like this to show Hollywood how it should be done."
‑ Johnny Butane, Dread Central
"I'm definitely zombied out."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"The film's genre-merging cleverness works against it, and releasing it in the wake of George Romero's zombie knockout Land of the Dead invites comparisons that may be unfair but inevitable."
‑ Terry Lawson, Detroit Free Press
"A fun and often creepy little zombie entry into the genre..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Zombies galore, buckets of blood, and a non-stop action flick with quirky characters."
‑ Jason Gorber, Film Scouts
"If the undead in this movie weren't so physically hideous, they'd be perfect for next year's season of "The Apprentice.""
‑ Christopher Smith, Bangor Daily News (Maine)
"A low-budget, mildly enjoyable oddity."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"There are about 2,000 hard-core Fangoria readers in the Bay Area who are going to absolutely love this film. But the 6,698,000 other residents will find it at best a little boring and at worst stomach-churningly offensive."
‑ Peter Hartlaub, San Francisco Chronicle
"An amusingly outrageous Australian variation on the familiar zombie theme, played mostly for laughs."
‑ Steve Biodrowski, ESplatter
"Unlikely to satisfy horror fans...but the Spierigs might have a future in this genre if they put more effort and imagination into their scripts."
‑ Ethan Alter, Film Journal International
"Une comédie d'horreur faite de peu de moyens et sans prétention, mais de manière un peu fade vu le scénario grandiloquent que le duo tente de nous faire gober."
‑ Jean-François Vandeuren, Panorama
