A terrible creation

This animation manages to make almost no sense, whilst also being too creepy for younger viewers. Avoid at all costs. This is a mistake in film making, along with its companion piece.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (11 ):

Daddy I'm a Zombie is a sometimes entertaining children's movie about friendship and appreciating life. It will appeal to kids who are curious about more grown-up horror films, without horrifying them. However, as with a lot of cartoon adventures, disbelief must be suspended not only regarding the existence of supernatural creatures, but also concerning the often illogical plot.
