Fido is a fun take on the modern zombie film set in the world of the idyllic 1950’s. Scientists have discovered a way to control zombies from attacking humans by outfitting them with collars that surpress their murderous natures. As a result, zombies are used by well-to-do suburbanites as servants and pets; and for some residents of the town — slightly more perverse functions. Scottish comedian/actor Billy Connelly is exceptionally good in the role of the titular zombie, Fido. A zombie that ends up filling the role of attentive lover for the housewife, best friend for the boy, and whipping post for the husband. At points the zombies can be a little bit scary, but also appear warm and caring as well. Fido is ridiculous by it’s very nature and comes across more as a comedy than a horror film, but it’s fun and entertaining. It’s also a good little piece of Can-con which I enjoy promoting when I can.

  1. I didn’t care for this movie as much as you did. Neat concept though.

      I loved the 1950’s sensibilities played against a zombie outbreak. Not the greatest film ever, I can attest, but it was a fun romp with some fun sight gags.
