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.

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

Ebert & Roeper

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.

Dorothy Woodend
The Tyee (British Columbia)

Fido tries very hard to keep the tone light, but it doesn't succeed in meshing hilarity and horror: the more disturbing ideas it's messing about with poke through.

Mark Rahner
Seattle Times

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.

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

Sean Axmaker

Subtle? No, but it's clever and funny in a thoroughly reimagined alternate universe, where the paternal smiles of authority figures hide an unchecked police state keeping the gated communities white, middle class, and compliant.

Ty Burr
Boston Globe

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

Fido does offer a good number of laughs, along with a healthy serving of gore to satisfy horror fans.

Scott Weinberg

Pretty funny, surprisingly smart, pleasant to look at, and often quite sick.

"Fido" is one of the only films in history to show emotion between a zombie and human. So the story we have all known about zombies is forgotten. Once… More
