Critic Reviews for Zombie for Sale

All Critics (28) | Top Critics (1)

"Zombie for Sale" hits an agreeable median between being slick, shaggy, grotesque and warmhearted.

July 29, 2020 | Full Review…

The film riffs on a lot of previous zombie films from "Land of the Dead" to "Warm Bodies" to "Zombieland," yet director Lee Min-jae manages to somehow keep it all fresh and decidedly funny.

August 3, 2020 | Full Review…

Audiences will be so connected with the characters that by the time it becomes a horror movie, Zombie for Sale will be all the more effective.

July 28, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

This light-on-gore horror satire directed by Lee Min-jae is full of screwy, truly imaginative ideas, and delightfully acted by a terrific ensemble.

July 27, 2020 | Full Review…

When it finally does become a horror flick, the characters are so well-realized that the humor remains and the terror is that much more effective.

July 21, 2020 | Full Review…

If you're going to take the dread away from the horror, then the comedy needs to be front and center. Zombie For Sale just flounders around on dry land like an undead fish out of water.
