By THE MOVIE GUY HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on March 1 2015
Format: DVD
The teenage kids vs. zombie comedies have become popular and have boasted some success. Some are funnier than others. This is an "other."

In this film Casper (Devon Bostick) and his friends break a cursed urn belonging to his grandfather (Christopher Lloyd). The people they look at become suicidal, then turn into demonically possessed zombies called "zemons" although they weren't any different than regular zombies. They attack by giving hickies and can be controlled by giving them a French kiss, although these last two aspects were not overly utilized making this a "me too" comedy zombie film.

To give you an example of the writing, a funny one-liner from the film: "I remember my first trophy. Most improved hygiene."

This is a Canadian production, with all the spice of mayonnaise. The actors did well to deliver their lines, which were hit and miss, with too many falling into the "miss" category. The writers did better on the build up to the action than it did during the action.

Recommended as a rental.

Goofy, cheesy, funny, great to watch with a group of friends. Sept. 12 2013
By SecretAsianMann - Published on Amazon.com
Zombie Type: "Zemons" (demon zombies); basically fast-walking (they don't really sprint) undead
Outbreak/Apocalypse Phase: Initial outbreak (characters experience the outbreak as it happens)
Sub-genre: Goofy Horror, Dark Comedy

Dead Before Dawn had an awesomely cheesy late 80's/early 90's vibe right from the start that carried the fun all the way to the very end. I'm a sucker for 80's cheese (hell yeah gimme some cheddar), so throw in some zombies and it's like crack for me. I had a good time watching this movie.

The first 20 or so minutes were a bit slow, but it's all fun once the stuff hits the fan. The basic premise involves a group of college kids fighting off the zemon menace. Main character Casper Galloway (played by "Diary of a Wimpy Kid's" Devon Bostick) is the grandson of Horus Galloway (great Scott, he's played by Christopher Lloyd!), the owner of a store called "Occult Barn." When Casper agrees to watch the store while the elder Galloway steps out to grab something, his friends accidentally unleash a curse that turns its victims into "zemons" and spreads itself from person-to-person either via eye-contact with Casper and his friends after 10pm or hickeys from the already infected. But wait! The zemons can be turned into your personal slaves if you seduce them with a French kiss! Needless to say, this movie's charm comes from the fact that it doesn't take itself the least bit seriously.

That's all you need to know. Dead Before Dawn is a bit over-the-top (not insanely crazy, more slapstick and funny than anything), surprisingly funny, cheesy, and fun to watch. I'm lucky to have found so many enjoyable zombie movies over the past month after years of sifting through random crap on Netflix.

Final Verdict: Recommended. Goofy, cheesy, funny, great to watch with a group of friends. If what I just typed doesn't immediately turn you off, go watch Dead Before Dawn!

A movie I thought was very funny. Full of stupid humor so it's not for everyone. I laughed all the way through. I say B July 29 2013
By Tony Heck - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
"Everything we said at the shop is actually happening! Whoever we make eye contact with is gonna kill themselves, then come back as zemons and kill us...via hickeys" Casper Galloway (Bostick) is a teenager who is very shy and jumpy due to what happened to him as a kid. When his grandfather (Lloyd) asks him to watch his store he is very afraid. After a group of kids from school show up Casper tries to kick them out until an urn breaks, thinking the warnings are a joke they begin to come up with ideas of what a curse would be. Then they realize its not a joke at all. This is a very very funny movie, but it is mainly stupid humor. I really liked it and laughed a lot but I don't think everyone will find it as funny as I did. For example the plot of the movie involves being killed by getting a hickey from a half zombie-half demon. The writing is funny and the acting is good for a movie like this. There really isn't much else to say about this other then if you like movies with humor like Anchorman and Shaun Of The Dead then you will like this as well. Overall, very funny but not for everyone...also hearing Christopher Lloyd say "Great Scott" was amazing. I give it a B.

Horror-comedy done right Oct. 24 2013
By Matthew Scott Baker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
If you love horror-comedy like me, then you're always on the lookout for the next SHAUN OF THE DEAD or TUCKER & DALE VS. EVIL. There's just something about combining hilarity with brutality and gore that brings a smile to my face...and not just because it's funny. Obviously, I'm a huge fan of horror, but I also love to laugh. So when the fine folks at Vivendi announced the release of DEAD BEFORE DAWN, I knew it was a flick that I wanted to check out. And thankfully, it's just as funny as I hoped it would be.

Before I continue, I do have to admit: this film is not as funny as SHAUN OF THE DEAD or TUCKER & DALE VS. EVIL. But those are two iconic pieces of cinema that are hard to beat. DEAD BEFORE DAWN is a great film, though, and is filled with lots of laughs and great gore. If you're looking for entertainment, then look no further.

DEAD BEFORE DAWN is shot well and looks good from a production standpoint. I wish I could have seen it in 3D, as I understand it's pretty spectacular. But the 2D version is just as fun, I'm sure.

The acting is pretty good, with Devon Bostick heading up a great cast. I am particularly impressed to note that director April Mullen also starred alongside Bostick as one of the lead female roles. Mullen is beautiful and talented, a multi-faceted actress and director that I hope to see more of in the future.

The laughs come quick and heartily in DEAD BEFORE DAWN as well. One of my favorite scenes that made me literally laugh out loud is when the fans and players at the football game all start to kill themselves. The cheerleaders are kicking themselves in the face, while the football players impale themselves on the line markers. It is hilarious!

Although DEAD BEFORE DAWN might not be as funny as the prior two films I mentioned, it is still a great flick and one that deserves your attention. It's chocked full of goofy laughs and grisly gore, so you can't ask for much more in a horror-comedy. I recommend giving this one a shot. It is available now in a variety of formats, but I suggest watching it on Blu-ray. In addition to the great picture and sound, you get a nice bunch of Special Features, including a Behind the Scenes featurette, a Making Of documentary, and a Blooper Reel.

Intelligent and funny "horror" genre. Break out of the box and check this out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Nov. 25 2013
By J. Blinn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
Hilarious and unique movie. Subtle (and overt) humor. I see this move as "Indie Awesome", the dialogue and interplay between the characters blows predictive factory produced horror movies out of the water.
I liked that it was smart and different. It kinda made me think of "Clue", "Shaun of the Dead" and "Dale and Tucker VS Evil" all together.
If you just want a silly slasher film- this is not your movie.
Looking for a unique, well written and original "horror but also hilarious" film" then do yourself a favor and check this out!!!!
I had watched it three or four times before I even learned about the special 3D filming.
