Fido (2006) Review:

Fido is a “horror-comedy” for it really combines greatly psychological horror, zombie-themed horror, as well as great humor and sarcasm. The first thing that really stroked me is the film’s similarity with Tim Burton’s Edward Scissorhands: the perfect American neighborhood, the strange creature being widely accepted then later rejected, the critic of American society hidden behind it, etc.

The film starts as a harmless children-oriented movie, but quickly develops an extra badass touch that makes it unforgettable. Behind its comedy cover, this film is way more clever and deep than it first seems. A lot of the scenes and quotes are actually extremely meaningful, cleverly hiding complex critics of modern society…like, for example, this all story with the dad spending all his money for his funeral. Thereee are also some really interesting science-fiction elements in that film, with an interesting back-story about the “zombie war” and how Zomcom domesticated the zombie’s thanks to a collar.

Overall, Fido is a wonderful and really clever film that totally surprised me since I was expecting a dumb comedy. I recommend to anyone for it makes you think about what really counts in life.
