“It may not be THE GODFATHER, PART II, but on its own terms, it’s a worthy follow-up.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“It’s not every day that a guy can say a zombie movie lifted their spirits, but I felt really good after leaving the theater and if you are a fan of the first ZOMBIELAND, you will too.” – Bryon McNeal, NerdCaliber

“Sure it’s chaotic and over-the-top, but that is just what it needs to be to bring this second chapter of the ZOMBIELAND saga to a satisfying close. And if the final scenes leave the door open for a third ZOMBIELAND film, so be it.” – John Black, Gruesome Magazine

“If you were able to relax and enjoy the first half of PUMPKINS, the payoff of the second half is your reward. While it’s clear the film must have had budgetary constraints tighter than an Elizabethian corset, Metheringham and her cast and crew make up for it with lots of energy and shoestring cinematic ingenuity.” – John Black, Gruesome Magazine
