More Info:
  • Adam Nayman

    The Returned can’t transcend its packaging as a genre piece: It swaps out an entire set of horror-movie manoeuvres for trite, TV-style thriller tricks.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Susan Wloszczyna

    It is less of a horror flick and more of a suspense thriller with sci-fi elements that possesses both brains–some sacrificed in messy fashion, of course–and a heart, as it makes a statement about an imaginary social issue that reflects those conflicts facing our country today.

    Zombies are a versatile source for metaphor, whether they represent a deadened consumerist society, a victimized minority or a worldwide medical disaster. In The Returned, they serve best as an unseen peril, one that's growing inside Alex and threatening to undo his and Kate's enviable existence.

  • Rob Staeger

    The film suffers from a series of unsatisfying endings, but it's nonetheless refreshing to see a zombie movie with brains behind the camera instead of on the menu.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Jonathan Holland

    Though well put together -- it keeps up the interest throughout and offers much food for thought -- the film lacks the authentically unsettling note that would have made it stand out.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Kevin Jagernauth

    There is something potentially special in the elements of The Returned, with its allusions to class and social structures, and stigmas held around people with certain afflictions. But it merely nods toward them with no commentary or depth.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Robert Abele

    Though an admirable shake-up of the typically overbearing, munch-intensive undead yarn, The Returned is still a far cry from the smarts-and-shocks zombie allegories George Romero mastered.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Noel Murray

    There’s a sluggishness to The Returned throughout, attributable to generally weak acting and a plot that requires a lot of exposition.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Ed Gonzalez

    It proves that the zombie narrative is still capable of subversion, but does so with the laziest, Lifetime-grade intimations of social relevance.
