Fido (2007)
Movie Review by The Gravedigger
12.11.07

Fido (2007) Just when you think this sub-genre of horror movie is dead, along comes one of the most original zombie movies ever made - FIDO.

The film takes place in an alternate 1950's, in which the survivors of the zombie wars live in small, fenced in towns, pretending life is normal. Although the zombies are flesh-eaters a company called Zomcon has created these collars which render them harmless and enable people to have them as servants. As long as they are wearing the collar and the light on it is red the zombies are safe. The Robinson family finally gets a zombie, which the boy names Fido, and things soon fall apart. The husband (Dylan Baker) is afraid of the creature, as it's revealed he had to kill his father, who turned into a zombie, when he was a kid and he takes out his frustration on it by pressing the pain button the collar control. The wife (Carrie Anne Moss of THE MATRIX movies) starts liking Fido better than she does her husband and the boy treats him as his best friend. In fact, the several times that Fido's collar malfunctions and he becomes a rampaging killer, he does not harm the child.

A lot of the credit has to be given to the performance of actor Billy Connolly as FIDO, who doesn't talk in the entire film, as well as Dylan Baker and Carrie Anne Moss.

The film is billed as a comedy, but the humor comes from the incongruity of the premise.
