It doesn't take long for the hilarity ofFido's central idea to kick in: the world is reeling from the Zombie War, and the undead are being contained in two different ways. Some of them are roaming loose in fenced-off wilderness zones. The rest are, thanks … see full wiki

The entire zombie subgenre has been so over done for so long that I was beginning to worry that there might be no coming back for it.

Understandably, a time when conformity was king, a comedy that satirizes sterility and a WASPy dominance of others has a laudable satiric message--even if the same saccharine speech is hammered throughout. Partly a parody of 'The Day of the Living Dead,' Night of the Living Dead a Zom-com executive moves into Timmy Robinson's (K Sun Ray) neighborhood to assure everyone the zombies are now harmless household figures made to be indentured servants …
