Editorial Reviews

In a post-zombie world, the infected live normal lives by taking a valuable retroviral drug every 24 hours. However, with supplies of the drug quickly running out, those who have returned are being targeted by violent anti-zombie protesters. Kate and her Returned husband Alex decide to flee the city, but with the zombie population rising, the government closing in on them, and their supply running out, they become more and more desperate as they search for a way for Alex to survive.

From the opening credits we are presented powerful imagery from the past of a brutal, traumatic, and even plausible domestic attack in which a wife and kids are cannibalized by a loved one-turned-zombie.

Shifting to the present, we meet Alex (Kris Holden-Ried; Underworld: Awakening, Lost Girl). He appears in every way to be a regular guy in a regular happy relationship talking about regular things…"it's time we told them," he says to Kate (Emily Hampshire; Good Neighbors, The Cradle). The kind of thing you'd say about informing your family of good news or bad; a pregnancy, an engagement, or even cancer.

Cut to a hospital and we see Kate treating people in the "Returned Unit." Patients, small talk with co-workers, kind bedside manner, "good news" from doctors…everything seems normal until a doctor's advice to parents taking their recovered child home seems just "a bit abnormal," as we are introduced to the fact that this "returned" child is being returned to his parents with instructions to give him an injection every day…an injection for which it is rumored that supply will soon fail to meet demand. Kate assures the parents that everything is fine, then secretly stockpiles the drug at home. A drug that keeps the virus at bay for no more than 24-36 hours.

"Returned" is a household term met with adversity--much like abortion. And likewise, it has it's protestor demonstrations, financial interests and political conflict. Whether "returned" or not--people are scared…people are angry…people are in denial…people are desperate…and people want to live normal lives. Eventually, some people even turn on the people they love.

During the first zombie outbreak that we don't get to see, over 100 million people died. A drug was found to control the disease. There is a catch. The drug must be injected every 36 hours or the person reverts. There is a short supply of the drug as it is derived from the spinal column of dead zombies. Kate (Emily Hampshire) is a doctor who treats "the Returned" and has a boyfriend Alex ( Kris Holden-Ried) who is a music teacher and one of them.

Kate buys treatments under the table. She has to battle against the societal prejudice against "zombies" which has become a politically incorrect word. It takes about 40 minutes to develop the plot and character.

The film has parallels to homophobia and various prejudices, after all who wants their sister to marry a zombie? There are anti-return groups and killings.

The main problem is when the movie picks up it still moves slow. I kept waiting for something to catch and hold my interest. The ending was a yawn in spite of the attempt at being a dramatic twist. Not exactly a zombie film.

Parental Guide: F-bomb. No sex or nudity

This movie has some bloody scenes but it is not the focus of the movie. The few zombie scenes that are shown are not for shock value but to make the viewer understand the emotional turmoil the characters are facing. Some of the flash back shots could have been left out since they took away from the moment rather than adding to the heightening how you felt. The story that the movie tells is one of interactions between people, how we love defines what we are. The film asks the question, when do we lose our humanity and start to give in to our baser instincts? Kris Holden-ried and Emily Hampshire make you care for their characters and their struggle. Shawn Doyle and Claudia Bassols play their roles well and have you asking yourself, What would I do? David Tompa has a very small role in the film as the father of a young returned, he does a great job making you feel his characters pain. You may be disappointed if all you are looking for blood. guts and gore; but if you are looking for a well made movie about human struggles then this is the film for you!

Modestly compelling zombie drama ('zama'? 'drombie'?) 'The Returned' (2013) will more likely appeal to fans of television's latest crop of serialized sci-fi hybrids than to those who like to sink their teeth into well crafted cinema of any particular genre. Passing attempts are made at graphic blood-and-guts vignettes, presumably to remind the viewer that amidst the various social and personal anxieties attendant to living in a zombie-ridden world there are actual flesh-eating baddies out there, though they were once somebody's parents, nephews, co-workers, spouses, etc. There is, however, too much grade-school moralizing and prolonged genuflection to maintain anything but small-scale suspense, and so we drift from platitude to dead-end analysis and back until things, predictably, unravel for our luckless yuppie heroes-- e.g., with teams of black-SUV-mounted, martial-law-happy agents closing in to round up all the infected who are provisionally cured (i.e., 'the returned') and march them off Gestapo-style to internment camps to wait out a catastrophic antivirus shortage, the protagonist scolds her targeted husband for wanting to arm himself: 'I will not have a gun in this house!' she shrills. (Characters like that, in circumstances like those, although they seem to abound in films like these, need to be beaten politically unconscious with a horsewhip constructed entirely of their own self-righteousness.) Now, on the positive side, for an inexpensive indie TR is impressively shot and reasonably well acted, and for those factors it earns 2-plus stars.

Note: I docked 2013's 'The Returned,' a Spanish-Canadian co-production, a half-star for its striking similarity in theme to 2004's French feature 'The Returned' (a.k.a., 'They Came Back'), which also has story-and-script-related problems, even though the former is arguably the better movie.
