    Saw this last night, and must say that it is one of the most enjoyable films I have seen in a while, funny, gorey & even scarey/jumpy too a must see.

    Also much better than either of the Dawn of the dead films IMHO

    Well i saw it yesterday and wished I hadn't. Thought it was actually pretty crap. One touching bit and one joke. Save your money and go buy a Cornetto instead.

    There were six folk in the cinema I saw it in. Perhaps that was part of the problem.

    Saw this today and thought it was very funny. Well worth seeing.

    Not that swearing bothers me, but I was a bit surprised it was just a 15. For the level of gore and swearing, including the C word and many, many F words, I would have thought it should be a definite 18.

    i really enjoyed it. A very funny film, it is about 15minutes too long mind you.

    The budget or lack of it does tell in places but overall highly recommended if you fancy a good laugh

    the Zombies where far better than that of DOTD 04 even with the restricted budget though, and the 'Day of the dead' scene looked great.

    I'm with Gordon, it was an OK film but nowhere near as good as it's being made out to be.

    I went to see it on Saturday, and expected a lot. (I'm a fan of Spaced and a zombie extra) But, I was still pleasantly surprised.

    I can't remember the last time I laughed out loud so much at a cinema. And as a fan of classic zombie films (especially the original Dawn of the Dead), this definitely treats the genre with respect.

    Me and her in doors are huge spaced fans. But you dont have to have watched spaced to love this film. It has to be one of the best british films made in years.

    I haven't seen any zombie film apart from Resident Evil (sorry), and I liked SOTD a lot. Big fan of Spaced though.

    You can definitely enjoy this film without having seen the original Dawn, but there's quite a few little touches that fans of the original (and Romero's classics) will get a kick out of.

    Incredibly raving review here at AICN as well.
