Reception[edit]

Michael Storey of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette called it a sub-par zombie film that lacks humor or camp.[3] Brian Lowry of Variety called it "a brain-dead exploitation pic" that is "an almost comically amateurish effort".[4] Andrew Dowler of Now wrote, "Zombie Night brings enough energy, skill and gore to its basic Night Of The Living Dead story to provide light entertainment on a chilly night."[5]
