Synopsis

Reel Zombies Reel Zombies Trailer 2008 Mike Masters YouTube

When a zombie outbreak erupts, zombie films are made illegal. Undeterred, a low budget film crew set out to create the sequel to their two previous, unsuccessful zombie films, reasoning that once zombie plague ends, there will once again be a market. The filmmakers attempt to film around the hostile zombies, while also using them as extras in their film.

    Reception

    Reel Zombies REEL ZOMBIES 2008 Movie Review YouTube

    Michael Gingold of Fangoria wrote, "Reel Zombies is a mix of big laughs and smiles of recognition, and will likely be most appreciated by anyone who’s spent time in the indie filmmaking trenches themselves." Dave Murray of JoBlo.com rated it 3/4 stars and wrote that it "couldn't be funnier". HorrorNews.Net wrote that the film is very funny and offers many surprises. Geoff Bough of Revenant Magazine wrote that the film "is honestly one of my favorite films of the year and provides an explosive dose of hilarity to the zombie subgenre." Olie Coen of DVD Talk rated it 3.5/5 stars and wrote, "If you like the genre check this out; it's a refreshing take on an old storyline that's surprisingly entertaining and smart." Gordon Sullivan of DVD Verdict wrote, "Though it has some good ideas—having actors play themselves, tying the film into the real world, making zombies slightly less threatening, and making a zombie film with "real" zombies—these additions to the formula aren't utilized effectively."
