TOP 1000 REVIEWERon 7 November 2015
This is actually pretty good with a fairly unique twist on the standard zombie flick - it works it into a male vs female battle of the sexes as a group of lads go on a boys-weekend-away to a remote village full of (mostly) sexy women who unfortunately all turn out to be suffering from some kind of zombie (STD induced!?) infection. We then have a pretty funny and eventful struggle between the sexes as the boys try to make their escape.

There is LOTS of blood and violence, some of it quite comical (as in funny moments rather than being poorly done) and enough of a story for it to be more than just a sequence of guys vs zombie vamps fight scenes as it develops the characters enough early on in the film for you to care about what happens and root for your favorite loser guy to make it home. The tone is never serious though - this is a camp, fun zombie movie with more than enough guts and gore but not much true horror or tension - more the odd jump, typically followed fairly quickly by a funny gag or something ridiculous, which works perfectly for this type of film. Danny Dyer I can take or leave depending on his role but thought he was pretty good here.

Sensitive. Deep. Emotional. These are all words that will NOT be used to describe ‘Doghouse.’ It is certainly an ‘acquired taste.’ And when I say acquired taste I mean basically a film that will primarily be enjoyed by blokes (probably after a few beers). Let’s just say that the ‘fairer sex’ doesn’t come off too well.

A group of lads (with vaguely distinctive personality traits) decide to go to an out-of-the-way little town in country England for a guys’ weekend away. Why? Does it matter? Anyway, they quickly discover that all the women there have become bloodthirsty zombies. Cue a fight for their lives (and in many cases body parts).

Yeah. It’s a B-movie, but then it never claims to be anything else. It has Danny Dyer and Noel Clarke in it. Yes, they’re about the biggest names in it. Again, it doesn’t need particularly big names in it. It’s basically an excuse to get a load of wise-cracking guys being constantly pursued by females zombies (and the inevitable sexist quips which come with it).

Basically, you’re either going to appreciate it for what it is (and cheeky little gorefest which puts men against women) or find it totally stupid and low-brow. Both arguments have their merits. I can see why some people would hate it. It’s hardly ‘high brow.’ You definitely need to be in the mood for it and know what you’re getting from the hour and a half of guys screaming and being dismembered by female monsters. Shakespeare it is not. Fun, it is. It’s got enough nice touches to be added to your collection (that statement is true possibly more if you’re a guy!). It may not be that original, but it has good gore, some nice one-liners and a cast that are just about lovable enough to root for over the insane harpies who hound them.

Please note that this review discusses details of the plot.
This film is a refreshing breath of political incorrectness.
It's quite different, and much funnier from American zombie flicks, because firearms are not readily available in UK.
These guys have been so emasculated, that they cannot even think of using kitchen knives as weapons!
Weapons of choice include golf balls, a remote-controlled toy truck, and modified squirt guns...
There are a lot of loving references to fantasy/horror/science-fiction films and gaming.
Cannibalistic female baddies include "the Bride" , an awesome Julie Strain wannabe, and a granny with a walker...
As if the situation isn't bad enough, the infected women mutate in Phase II, which is reminiscent of "Species".
Unfortunately, the Blu-ray extras are not subtitled for the Hard-of-Hearing.

Danny Dyer and some mates go on a lads weekend and end up in a village where all the women have got infected with some sort of crazy zombie plague. A slightly different take on the zombie genre adding in this battle of the sexes twist, but not enough to make it really stand out as ground breaking. It is however a good laugh with plenty of comedy gore. Not life changing by any means but good for a night in with a few mates who also like zombie movies, and a few drinks. I like it even though it is not the best film ever made, it's good fun.

Great comedy it is what it is a Shaun of the Dead type zombie comedy & nothing else should be expected of it.
It's down to earth characters have you more than half believe that this scenario could actually happen.
Danny Dyer's has made some very good & a lot of terrible films but most are slagged off by reviews & critics who influence the final classification of all of his films which is a shame, all the Nick Love films, Vendetta & this one are very good...

Is it a horror? Is it a comedy? Is it a bit of both? It's a mad mash up of too many genres. Some funny lines and genuinely gory bits. Danny Dyer plays a sexist cockney. Some good British talent in this film, not sure whether to love or hate this film.

Saw this film on TV & it cracked me up! So I got the DVD! Crazy humour! In a similar vane to Shaun Of The Dead. Danny Dyer,Noel Clarke Stephen Graham,Lee Ingleby,Emil Marwa & Keith-Lee Castle are a perfect cast! ;-)

this is a typical danny dyer humour film, the story is corny and unreal, but i haven't laughed so much watching a brit flick for a long time, women zombies and even a zombie granny with a zimmer, and when the fat bird zombie ties him up and he(danny) tries to come on to her to save his skin it cracked me up, this film is worth a watch any time but dont expect the tough guy film from danny or terry stone and the other usual suspects in these brit flick films it is a good laugh, i enjoyed it and would recommend it.
