Editorial Reviews

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.

Woke Up Dead (2010)

I like sideways takes on the Zombie experience and count this as one of them. A guy takes a drug at a party and the next morning he wakes up dead. He gathers a helper in the med student who nearly cut him open in the morgue. The pair and his totally jerky room mate try to figure out how, what and why this happened to him. I found it fun to watch.
Jon Heder plays Drex Green, the guy who “Woke Up Dead”. We know him from the very popular “Napoleon Dynamite. Krysten Ritter plays Cassie, the med student. Ritter has a long list of credits on TV and in films. She has also worked as a model and plays guitar in a band called Ex-Vivian. She has many talent. Matt, the jerk room mate, is played by Josh Gad. He also has a number of TV and film roles as a number of voice only roles as well.
While Drex and Cassie focus on finding out why Drex can function just fine even with no heartbeat, his room mate films everything. He wants to break into the film business and has no scruples what so ever. Matt encourages Drex to fall off buildings and what not to make dramatic film episodes. As a dead guy, Drex cannot suffer harm in these stunts. Matt had a previous career making up the skirt films of random women so this actually makes for a professional improvement for him.
Other cast members include Wayne Knight (Seinfeld) and Jean Smart, a long time movie and
TV actress best know from her five year stint on “Designing Women”. Israeli born Meital Dohan plays another Zombie in the confusing script.
After watching “Woke Up Dead” I discovered that rather than a movie the project was actually a 22 episode web cast. They made the DVD version by simply patching together the 22 three to seven minute episodes into a single long strip.
