    Reception

    Bloody Disgusting rated it 1.5/5 stars and wrote that film fails on every level except for the gore effects and its poster art. Melissa Bostaph of Dread Central rated it 2.5/5 stars and wrote, "[W]hile I can say the movie is bad, it's not so bad as to be unwatchable." Jon Condit, also writing for Dread Central, rated it 1.5/5 stars and wrote, "I found the first 70-minutes to be a bore to sit through and the last twenty to be quite entertaining." Ian Jane of DVD Talk rated it 1.5/5 stars and wrote, "There are plenty of times where low budget films work just fine even with obvious flaws but here, there's nothing to compensate for the cheap looking zombie effects and poorly contrived script." David Johnson of DVD Verdict called it "an enjoyable low-budget, undead comedy romp".
