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.

How dare give this title to this piece of crap. There was one zombie in a Santa suit and one set of Christmas lights.

You know why they LIED about the title? Because if you call it the "Oprah Oxygen Network talk about your insane feeling for extended inappropriate times while zombies at nipping at you leg" movie, no one will watch it.

Out of 1 1/2 hours, I think there was 82 hours of talking, cheating, double cross cheating, divorce gone bad, emotional sharing, bromance crap.

Then there's the insanity. A cop that shoots at zombies 10 feet away, shoots 8 times and hit "nothing but net", just swishes through the air, no zombies. They pump 20 shells into this one zombie and always miss his head. A guy is backing up an attic ladder and a zombie is below him, so maybe 4 feet away. He can't hit him once with 5 rounds? They meet a guy in an attic covering up his dead baby and they're fine with him. A group of survivalists come to rescue them, she gets in a fight, gets naked to prove she has no bite marks and the cop handcuffs on the toilet, hand out the zombie ridden window, to make sure she's clean. Guess what - they try to nibble on her.

By the end, you are so rooting for the zombies to kill these non-stop talking emotion sharing "men".

If I could, I'd give -10 stars.

If you dare to make a piece of crap like this, give it an honest titlle: "The worthless emotionally twisted feminine cops that can't shoot, but share their feelings and bromance." Oh, that's right, that would never EVER sell. So you lie. I think they added a scene or two with Christmas stuff just to try and salvage this piece of crap.

How dare you.

This is an alright zombie film in a made-for-TV way, but it doesn't live up to the premise of it's title, that it's a Christmas zombie flick. to be that, it would have had to work in a lot more Christmas decor, atmosphere and spirit into the proceedings, which it doesn't even attempt to do. Most of this was probably due to budgetary constraints. It should have been set in Connecticut or somewhere with snow but instead is set in L.A. where it;'s usually 70 degrees on Christmas Day. Snow costs too much. The Christmas decor is minimal and there's no attempt to play appropriately inappropriate Christmas music, which could have been fun. But it costs a lot to license songs for films. There's one zombie Santa, and that's about it.

What we're left with is then a basic small budget zombie movie with a few actors in a small apartment and a few outdoor shots. That's how you do a small budget film: not many actors, not many sets. but without all that you have to turn to a character plot since you can't have rampaging zombie scenes, so this becomes a fairly conventional soap opera with two men in love with the same woman. There are other developments, of course, but that's the thing the plot turns on. Uniquely, there are two kinds of zombies: the slow, lumbering kind who mostly seem to be in a trance, and the ones with red eyes who possess intelligence and are fast and limber and can even climb fences to get at you. The zombies are pretty decently bad looking for a low budget film. These are actually "infected" and recently so. The acting is also okay, on a par with a minor TV show or film.

I don't find it as bad as many people do, but don't go in expecting much.
