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 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.Read more ›
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.
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.

Silent Night has some hits and some strikes. It's definitely lower budget and that is clear in the graphics and the story. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Jay Ward
