Fido (2006)

Okay, first of all I have to say that this movie is nothing at all what I was told to expect. When someone tells me that it is a cross between Cujo and Bad Taste, I'm expecting Beethoven Gone Wild.

But nope. "Fido" isn't even a dog.

So once I realised that I'd been seriously misled, I could sit back and watch the film with absolutely no idea what to expect.

The film is cute. There, I said it. It's cute in a slightly disturbing way, but what can you expect from a world that exists post-zombie epidemic where mankind has figured out a way to control the reanimated corpses to do their bidding. It's zombies acting like...well, zombies.

But it can't be a perfect world. There has to be a glitch in the system that might make an otherwise well-behaved zombie eat its owner. And so the fun begins.

If I had to describe it as a hybrid, I'd say it's more along the lines of Night of the Living Dead and Pleasantville.
