Consensus: An amateurish, unfunny and unscary British horror-comedy that could be accused of misogyny.

Nigel Floyd
Time Out

The magic ingredient here is Dan Schaffer's sly script, which constantly undercuts the film's inherently sexist premise.

Doghouse is a very entertaining time-waster and definitely one for the boys %u2013 break out the beers and just have some fun.

You could say that this is one step up from the ghastly Lesbian Vampire Killers, since it suggests they are getting what they deserve from the other sex. But that step is a short one.

Scott Weinberg

A Mad Magazine-style zombie-fest that chomps on PC sensibilities like they're made out of obnoxious male flesh.

Sunday Times (UK)

Female zombies are the perfect excuse to show women being beaten up by men. In its trashy way, the film has just enough exuberance to be classified as harmless.

Allan Hunter
Daily Express (UK)

A grotesque misogynistic romp, Doghouse is too laddish and corny to even hold a candle to the witty Shaun Of The Dead. Perhaps Lesbian Vampire Killers wasn't so bad after all.

Doghouse is in no way substantive, but it is kind of an enjoyable goof, if you're in the mood for such a thing.

Observer (UK)

A dim zombie comedy.

Matt Glasby

Like going on a stag-do with people you hate, this beta-male bilge is far too Neanderthal to do much more than drag its knuckles on the ground and sniff the rears of other, better films.

Disappointing. Starts off with a premise ripe with possibility for social and gender commentary and comedy... and then fails to do anything with it. In fact,… More

The strength is in the makeup and special effects. The weakness is in the story subtext (and often blatant dialogue) about sexgender and how the zombie… More

I hate to use descriptions like these, but this film reminded me of a mashup between The Hangover and Shaun of the Dead. Quite genuinely scary in parts and… More
