In this Shaun of the Dead style zombie comedy, Drex Greene (Napoleon Dynamite’s Jon Heder), a confused zombie who can’t be any deader, tries to solve the case of the mystery pill that left him drowned in a bathtub. With the help of his wannabe filmmaker roommate Matt (The Daily Show's Josh Gad) and the sexy med student Cassie (Breaking Bad's Krysten Ritter), who first discovers Drex as he unzips himself from his own body bag, the three begin to uncover leads about why his death didn’t stick, why a mystery online chat buddy is after him and why he’s starting to show signs of superpowers. Will they figure out why Drex is only sort of dead? Will Cassie discover ancient Zombie secrets? Will Matt get a film career out of it? Or is falling in love actually what Drex needs to do to stay alive? Woke up Dead co-stars Wayne Knight (Seinfeld) and Jean Smart (24, Frasier).

Format: DVD
Woke Up Dead has an excellent cast of actors, so I was surprised at how much of a let-down the DVD was. Woke Up Dead isn't really a traditional movie. It's a string of 22 episodes of a show that was streamed on the internet in 2009.

The webisode series followed Drex Greene (Napoleon Dynamite), a zombie who tries to discover the secret behind a mysterious pill that made him "wake up dead." He's aided by his camera-toting buddy Matt, and Cassie, an especially hot medical student.

The good news: the casting is great. Jon Heder of Napoleon Dynamite stars as Drex, Josh Gad from "21" plays his roommate, and friend, and the beautiful Krysten Ritter (Breaking Bad) is Drex's med student love interest. Add to the mix Wayne Knight (Newman from Seinfeld), Meital Dohan (Weeds), and Ellia English (Curb Your Enthusiasm), and it looks like you'd have a hit DVD.

The problem? The writing is downright boring. It's not a legit "zombie" flick, and it's just not funny. The editing gives it the feel of a Nickelodeon program, but with adult themes. The product placement for Kodak throughout the program also starts to get a little annoying after a while.

What's worse is that the "movie" ends on a cliffhanger, since it's a compilation of the first season of the webisodes. You don't get to find out what happens to Drex (in the middle of an explanation), nor how he became a zombie. Since a second season hasn't even been announced, we're at least a year away from even finding out how the story ends.

The bottom line: This was a great collection of actors, all underused because of weak writing and a low budget. A film about a guy trying to make a discovery ends mid-story with no explanations and no closure. Why this was released on DVD before a second season was even filmed is a complete mystery to me, I wouldn't even suggesting renting it.

I just rented this and I didn't hate it until the end. It's low budget but it has some charm which is why I gave it 2 stars. The problem starts towards the end of the movie where you see that they are running out of time to wrap this up (and yes it slows to a crawl making you look at the time). After 80 minutes you find out (since I'd never heard of WUD or Crackle) that this is a web-series of 4 minute episodes strung together ending in a cliffhanger. Very disappointing.

As others have mentioned if you love zombies...and who doesn't, you will be let down. If you like comedies, horror movies and/or a complete story...again you will be let down. If they think I will visit Crackle weekly for the next season of 4 minute episodes...*they* will be let down.

Lame and boring. Seemed to drag on forever. There were a few entertaining scenes but overall I was amazed how boring this interesting sounding plot became. It is done in reality tv form. I love zombies but this blows. A genuine let down.

Drex (Jon Heder) wakes up dead. His roommate (Josh Gad) is a digesting perv who films and posts everything. Drex attempts to find clues as to what has happened to him with Cassie (Krysten Ritter) a med student helping out.

In spite of being dead. Drex has acquired super human skills and speeds. There is a subplot at work and just when his mother is about to explain what has happened to Drex, the film ends. Sorry about revealing the spoiler wasn't revealed, although there are enough clues for us to make an educated guess, The film which I obtained at "Big Lots" for $5.00 is a TV series pilot or the first episode of a 24 episode series which I never watched while it was on TV. As a stand alone film, it tanks at the end. In spite of that I liked this episode, although clearly it was neither great or a classic, just some good unorthodox Jon Heder fun.

A Terrible Boring Stupid Movie. I hate to do this. I only do it when a movie is really, really, really bad.. Annoying characters, especiually the fat Jack Black clone roomate, the fat Negro female supervisor, the fat guy in the next cubicle at work, the fat secret spy, the skinny chipmunk-voiced chick med' student, and the ugly embalmed-looking mother. Absolutely nothing happens in this movie and it makes no sense at all and has no discernible plot or believability. It stinks.
