Editorial Reviews

Note: Revenant is a 2009 Film

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.

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.

As you've read in the other reviews, this movie is a mixture of humorous and serious moments. Scenes where I wasn't laughing, but was still enthralled included the one where Bart's girlfriend cuts her arm to give him blood, and it turns erotic ; when he agonizes over cutting her head off while in her dormant sleep, to free her from a vampire future ; and his breakdown in the empty subway car after trying to fling himself in front of a subway train, and merely losing an arm. At this point, his girlfriend and his best buddy are both dead, by his hand, and he clearly wishes he was permanently dead himself. The plot dives in and out of serious and humorous sequences with a certain grace that I find pleasurable and well-done. Imagine yourself crawling out of your own casket, not knowing what the Hell is going on, and learning the ropes of being a vampire from scratch. The hunger never leaves you, but your humanity does, eventually, to make way for feeding yourself. Suicide is extremely difficult, and then the hunger overshadows even that.

As others have stated, the f-word gets used a lot in conversations between Bart and his best friend, and their friendship was an "Animal House" blend of bromance and immature squabbling that was a major vehicle for the humor. It kept things light enough to help out that porpoising in and out of seriousness, but it struck me as going a bit too far in that direction, at times. Something about the way Bart held his head in his hands as he contemplated a choice of horrors before him, or when he was wondering for the thousandth time why this was happening to him, touched me. As he is driven toward an insane, amoral, true vampire's orientation near the end , I wasn't laughing, and it was easy to forget the silliness elsewhere in the movie.

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.

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.

The cover is what you are gonna get – so truth in advertising wins one for me. Are they true vampires or blood drinking zombies – ahha – you get the notion of what the title, means. If you like films like Repo-the Genetic Opera and Deadheads then I think you’d like this one. As always (anymore) Google for the You Tube trailer and check that out – the films is as good as the trailer. I liked it and was very glad it was a purchase and the price is down so I’d say go for it ($8.65 at the time I write this). My very particular best enjoyed moments (how to say this and not plot spoil?)is the interactions with the “will work for food” people at various corners – I wish I could say more but cannot unless I give the deal away – a good quirky little film that if you like it, you will really like it. As I said for the price - I suggest getting it unless you can rent it locally off the $1 for 1 week rack at this time.

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.
