Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: 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. – Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times, Feb 13, 2014

Fresh: Carballo squeezes an impressive amount of exposition into news reports and medical briefings, but Holden-Ried's and Hampshire's performances are what ground the film ... – Rob Staeger, Village Voice, Feb 11, 2014

Rotten: Pivotal scenes dive too deep into melodrama, and there's something inevitably sterile about a script that includes only scenes that propel the plot or provide obvious foreshadowing. – Tomas Hachard, NPR, Feb 13, 2014

very nice movie

I hope there will be soon “The Returned 2"

The Returned

Save your money, the trailer had more action and suspense then the entire movie. Nothing but a whole bunch of talking and crying going on.

Bored to death, do I need the serum?

The zombies are eating people, infected people are being saved from turning into zombies, society is breaking down -- and viewers are bored stiff
