Editorial Reviews

This breakout horror comedy centers around a fallen soldier who somehow finds he has joined the ranks of the living dead. Bart Gregory (Anders) has just recently been laid to rest - so why is he still up and walking around? The only way he can keep himself from diminishing to dust is to supply himself with a constant supply of fresh blood. He quickly decides to do law enforcement a favor by cleaning up the streets.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kick Ass Meets The Living Dead! - (sort of) April 5, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
This is a genre splicing film from Wanko Toys Productions, and that has to be the best production name ever. It links the `Death Wish' revenge theme with the undead zombie theme. The basic synopsis is our hero Bart (David Anders) is killed on active duty in Iraq. His body is repatriated and a grieving girlfriend and best mate bury him. The preacher is one of those full on sanctimonious Bible bashers that insinuates that Bart may not have embraced the Lord enough in life to be welcomed through the Pearly gates, so we should all take note. This gets best mate Joey (Chris Wylde) thinking if his best friend may actually have gone to Hell.

Well he needn't have fretted, as later that night he gets a knock at the door and a voice from the past calls out. Yes you guessed right, Bart has returned, and after some initial scepticism Joey takes in his old mate, but he soon has to make a trip to the Emergency Room after Bart finds he can't process normal food, the penny finally drops when the Hospital goes mental at the thought of the living dead. After some inter web research Joey realises he is neither Vampire nor Zombie, so they decide he is a Revenant - from the French for one who has come back after a long time, often from the assumed dead.

Then they get mugged and after a tussle they realise that Bart can have a steady food supply and do society some good by killing criminals and homeless and drug dealers and just about anyone that they consider bad.

This is billed as a riotous comedy and it does have some very dark humour but not belly laugh stuff, the gore is pretty full on though. The actual story is the real strength, and the twists are far from obvious or sign posted.

4.0 out of 5 stars an inventive zomedy April 7, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
Bart awakes dead, post autopsy, and is quite freaked out about it so heads to his best mate Joey's
Bart is clearly dead, but clearly alive with full brain function so is not your typical zombie, he also is completely dead during daylight hours only to reanimate at sunset, wich is conveniant enough for the boys to live a party lifestyle.
While out one night they stumble into an armed robbery and bart is shot, realising being a zombie comes with the perk of being invinsible and seeing as Bart needs to drink blood to continue to servive decides to be a vigilante style superhero with Joey the happy side kick.
Great to be watched in companion with Dead Heads, great laughs and a new perspective on the zombie landscape, a much needed reinvention

5.0 out of 5 stars Not for the humorless or lite-hearted January 11, 2014
By WSKane
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Revenant is one of the best dark comedy gory action horror films of all time. Rich in intelligent dialogue, gruesome gore, a well written story line, and good acting, this flick offers top notch entertainment from start to finish. If you like twisted comedy and zombie gore, it's a must-have addition to your cult classic collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not bad at all January 2, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Don't think Zombie only! it's more like a zombie/vampire hybrid, which was quite nice to see. especially since it was unexpected....sorry. either way, the acting was suprisingly good, the effects were good and the storyline was very original. i was overall very pleased with the flick and i recommend it. the only problem i had with the movie is that i felt it should have been longer and had a more involved storyline with the original characters. but they made time for an elaborate ending which i thought was hilarious, ironic, and could possible but unlikely pose an oppurtunity for a sequel.

i won't give anything away, so buy it, rent it, borrow it, or steal it. hope this helps.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great funny gore. December 12, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This movie is so well told. The writer/director has a history in special effects makeup, and it shows here. There's plenty of gory, messy stuff for the lovers of that. The writing and the lead actors take it so much further though. It's funny. It's a great buddy comedy at times. It'll make you jump out of your seat at times. Not sure why I haven't already heard talk of it being a cult classic, because it IS a cult classic... perhaps still waiting to be found by a cult.

This is a great film with a great script. I'm not usually into zombie comedies but how is this film not more famous?

Yes its a bit rough around the edges but its got a great script with a great sense of humor. Reminds me of cult films like Repo Man and Cemetary Man. If you're into films with a built-in sense of nostalgia then please find a way to see this one.

Just go on wikipedia and check how many horror and fantasy festivals this film has played at and check out the awards its received at them. My guess is that the director/producer made it without a distributor on board and then later none of them will touch it like it has a plague.

Why do great films like this just go undistributed and unnoticed?

If you like zombie/dark comedy/buddy/gory/vigilante/military movies with a great ending...then watch this. I honestly can't see why anyone who likes zombie/dark comedy wouldn't enjoy this movie. It probably could have been slightly shorter and maybe better character development, but I thoroughly enjoyed it, ESPECIALLY the ending...I like The Walking Dead...but I'd rather watch this as a series.

***SPOILERS***

Although I thought the ending was so perfect and unbelievably if you watch the credits you will see that the last scene of the movie was actually shot in the exact place in Iran that it says in the movie!! Man they must be "dying" for that film money over there in Iran!!! BUT...how funny would it have been to have it setup for a sequel with those two in Vegas in that hearse-condo and just going nuts! If I was a cable network like FX, AMC (probably not AMC because of TWD), TNT etc I would pitch this as a series but more as a dark comedy where it follows the film script up until they get into the fight and they end up in Vegas! I would watch it! And if I'm honest I'd probably like it more than TWD! TWD has some of the most ridiculous directing, dialogue and acting (there are some GREAT actors on that show though...although bad writing and directing can make any actor look bad so I shouldn't blame the cast.) But the show has been getting better from season to season. I love when TWD super fans get pissed when it doesn't win anything at the Emmys or Golden Globes.
