Review

Highlights

It Feels Like A Robot Chicken Short

This is a comical short from the comedic president’s reaction to learning of zombies, people having sex in graveyards, and trying to sacrifice others to save themselves. One that really seems in line with what Cartoon Network’s Robot Chicken produces, just with the camera zoomed out more so you don’t get to see a notable amount of details regarding what’s going on.

Overall

Our Rating: Positive (Worth Seeing)

Night of the Mini Dead is comical, quick, and pleasing.

Who Is This For?

Those who like zombie horror.

Ratings

  • Recommended: Some of the best-seen movies we have ever watched and mentioned to friends, family, and strangers as films that need to be seen.
  • Positive (Worth Seeing): Whether you’ll have to go to the movies, download, or stream, movies of this category are worth your time and money with few, if any, qualms from us.
  • Mixed (Divisive): Due to this movie having a few quirks, of which may work for some and for others be a problem, we believe your enjoyment of this movie will depend on your taste.
  • Negative (Acquired Taste): While one or two elements kept us going until the end, unfortunately, we’re of the opinion this film never reached the potential it was marketed to have.

Special Categories/ Tags

  • Indie: By our definition, independent films are films you have to seek to find due to limited availability or lack of a marketing push.
  • Film Festival: Featured in this tag are films and shorts which were discovered thanks to various film festivals, so some of the productions may not have wide availability but still may deserve to be on your watch.
  • Shorts: Be it ten or fifteen minutes, or a half-hour, these quick teases or films get right to the point, often show the potential of filmmakers and the actors who have joined them in their journey.
  • Ending Spoilers: Trying to remember how a film ended, or want a different take on the ending, then check out the "ending spoilers" category.
