Release[edit]

A trailer was released in November 2006.[1] On March 15, 2009, Zombie Wars played at the first Paranoia Horror Film Festival.[2]

Reception[edit]

Scott Foy of Dread Central rated the film 3/5 stars and called it "a fun little piece of pulp action horror – a modern day drive-in movie, breezy and cheesy, but done so with an unmistakable enthusiasm."[3] David Walker of DVD Talk rated the film 1/5 stars and said, "Zombie Wars is not a terrible film in the sense that it is not completely unwatchable. It is, however, a terrible film in that the script is bad, the direction is lackluster, the acting is marginal and the premise, which has hints of Planet of the Apes, is laughable in its execution."[4] Peter Dendle wrote that the film is "conceptually ambitious" but dragged down by its poor writing, acting, and production values.[5]
