Fido

In Theatre : June 15, 2007
Director(s): Andrew Currie

Welcome to Willard, a small town lost in the idyllic world of the 50's, where the sun shines every day, everybody knows their neighbour, and rotting zombies carry the mail. Years ago, the earth passed through a cloud of space dust, causing the dead to rise with an insatiable hunger for human flesh. Terror spread across the land, until a collar was invented that made the zombies docile, even useful. A company was born: ZomCon. Thanks to their patented domestication collarâ„¢, zombies became gardeners, milkmen, butlers, and even pets. ZomCon would like everyone to believe that they have the world under control - but do they?

Timmy Robinson doesn't think so. He thinks the world is "phony-baloney". An awkward loner, Timmy spends so much time in his room, even his own parents don't notice him. So when Mom buys a zombie to help around the house, Timmy is surprised, and even curious, when the beast wants to play catch. As the pair plays baseball in the park, the zombie saves Timmy from the local bullies. A true friendship is born and Timmy names the zombie, "Fido". But Fido's collar goes on the fritz, and Timmy's cranky old neighbor Mrs. Henderson pays the ultimate price. That night, Timmy sneaks back to the park to bury her, but discovers it's too late - she's already turned into a flesh-crazed zombie! In a fight to the finish, he chops off her head with a shovel and buries her in a flowerbed.

To complicate matters, ZomCon's notorious zombie-control specialist, Mr. Bottoms, has moved in across the street - soon becoming Timmy and Fido's worst nightmare. Lucky for Timmy, Bottoms' daughter Cindy has a crush on him, and becomes a valuable ally. Timmy causes mayhem as he fights to keep Fido a member of the family. Mom and Dad are divided on what to think of Timmy's new best friend, and it isn't long before Dad puts his foot down. So when it's discovered what really happened to Mrs. Henderson, Timmy is forced to take Fido to the only place that he'd be safe, past where the cornfields end, across the river to the mythical "Wild Zone".

But Fido is captured and enslaved at ZomCon. In a final, risk-all adventure, Timmy, Mom, and even Dad, rescue Fido from the dark forces of ZomCon. Fido returns to his place in the Robinson family, and the Robinsons, oddly enough, learn from a dead man what it really means to be alive.

Fido Review by Wild Zombie

I think that (zombie) movie lovers will not only enjoy the "classic zombie-ness" of Fido, but will appreciate the humour and original plot that Fido will provide. The cast is awesome,and I think Fido will be one of thi...
Fido Review by jmh314

Ever since Shaun of the Dead came out in 2004, the horror-comedy has been the hot style of horror film to make.  While horror-comedies are nothing new, Shaun of the Dead seemingly brought it back to the forefront.&n...
Fido Review by boogie86

Many people may not classify "Fido" as a horror movie , but I consider it to be a very witty Dark Comedy with Horror elements. The movie is set in the 1950's in a very "leave it to beaver" community. A long Zombie War...
Fido Review by Goon

Zombie films have been done to death. Almost every single type of zombie film has been done and I had seriously thought I had seen it all. That is until Fido came along. Yes Shaun of the Dead is a good zombie comedy and ...

Fido Review by Googopqp

Fido is about a collar that makes zombies nice and trainable. Zombies don't feel the need to kill or eat living flesh and they can be treated like pets basically and do work and chores. This movie kind of takes place whe...
Fido (2006) Review by jamhorner

This was like no other zombie flick that I have seen in the sense that it combined the “innocent” era of the 1950s and the grim, grittiness of a zombie outbreak. The movie is about a typical nuclear family li...

Fido is a zombie movie that plays beautifully on old tropes. It is clever, entertaining, and wonderful to to watch. It is, in many ways, perfect. It takes places just after the great zombie war and now zombies are domes...
