Not what I had hoped for: so little zombie mayhem, far too much melodrama. Most of the movie deals with the relationship/triangle of three people: two police officers, and a wife they both love (while the rest of the world goes to pot). Somehow, I can't quite believe survival would be put on hold so that three people could endlessly yap about their dysfunctional friendships. I expect zombies in a zombie movie, not a handful of folks hiding in a house as they discuss a failed marriage and a partnership about to be dissolved. It also didn't help that the lead character Frank (Jack Forcinito) is thoroughly repugnant and difficult to watch. No wonder his wife and his partner want to leave him, the guy is a creep.
The tone of this movie was totally from a soap opera standpoint, with a few zombies tossed into the background. If it was meant to be funny, it failed, if it was meant to be horrific.............well, define horrific, it was pretty abysmal.
Not a keeper. I'm almost sorry I bothered watching it in the first place. I'm certainly sorry I wasted money on a frustrating viewing of a subpar movie.
Well, the Santa zombie was worth a chuckle.

Not a literal see-saw of course: a figurative one. This movie challenged my willingness to accept almost anything simply because it's a zombie movie. Therein lies the "see-saw": it was a bad movie, it was a good movie, then a bad movie, then a good, then...and so forth. I started out thinking ok, the acting really is bad; but it got better, and better, until by the end it was quite good. And the two main characters fit right in with the good movie-bad movie paradigm - they were cops, and literally one seemed like a good cop, the other like a bad cop. Unfortunately - especially for them - they ended their assignment being a couple of jerks whose bravado nearly got them killed. In fact, the absolutely absurd macho excess at the end was exactly what proved the undoing of the male heroes of "Doghouse" (another offbeat but thoroughly engaging zombie movie).

Not to fault the zombies for any of this, though. They did everything expected of zombies - with one interesting twist: there were two kinds, one the passive zombies who spend most of their time walking aimlessly about; the other attack zombies who spent all of their time stalking normal humans and even planning strategies of attack. There was even a virtual first for a zombie movie: a poignant character, who took a moment from trying to survive to lament the unfairness of the zombie assault. His son had been bitten and, instead of trying to deny the boy's growing zombification, had shot him to keep him from becoming a zombie himself.

Through it all, the heroine - the bad cop's wife, who also loved the good cop, who loved her back, which affected their primary focus - remained closer than anyone else to the central theme.

A week before Christmas, a viral outbreak turns the citizens of Los Angeles into flesh-eaters. On the brink of severing ties with both his wife and his longtime partner, an L.A.P.D. officer instead winds up trapped with them as death closes in. That's the plot to Sean Cain's Silent Night, Zombie Night.

Robin Pierce of Gorezone Magazine saying that Sean Cain has outromeroed George Romero with Silent Night, Zombie Night--I don't think so. Why? Well- there's very little zombie chaos. It centers more on the drama of a love triangle(two policemen & the wife they both love) than it does on what's going on around them. Not only that but, other than the fact it takes place during the holiday season and Santa appears as a walker, it really makes no sense to call this movie what it is called.

Course, if you can get past all the B.S. and whatnot, it was an ok & decent watch. However, like Devil's Playground, I can only recommend a rental, at best. Buying this is such a complete waste. However, if you can find it in a bargain bin somewhere for a five-spot, maybe....but I'd give it a look beforehand and then base my decision on that.

Ok but not great for a zombie movie. Plot is predictable and mundane. Wholesale slaughter of zombies. I am ready for something new.

This was a bit off-beat and the zombie santa ----- I wish they'd not have killed him right off --could have let him hang around and lurk about for a while, but the story line was good, the acting and action kept my interest so -- not bad if you can buy it in the $10 to $13 range and I liked it enough that I will re-watch, sure. So, on the shelf of keepers it goes for me -- check out the previews or get on youtube and watch them and you'll get the idea and the vibe of the film....no new groundbreaking plot here -- so the script/acting and the quirks carried it.

I watch a lot of zombie movies. I know they are not usually the highest of quality but this is the worst. The story line has nothing to it and the main characters are horrible. You actually just want them to do die almost immediately. The movie is not even so bad its funny. It is just poorly written and poorly made. Me and my husband could not even finish it. Very sad and lame movie.
