Fido 
I want to watch it again already!
3/4 stars

To understand why Fido is so great you have to first understand the plot and setting. Fido takes place in the 1950ís after the zombie wars have turned our world into a radioactive mess. People no longer die, they turn into flesh-eating zombies. Now, zombies are part of society, in a twisted way. People have them as butlers, furniture movers, news paper boys and even girlfriends. One family didnít want to be the last one on their block not to have a zombie, so they got Fido.

The idea of the movie is funny enough, but their subtle humor throughout that really carries the film along. Everyone in the movie is emotionless and dry, so when a neighbor gets eaten by Fido the boy simply hoses the zombie off and buries the woman. No harm done.

Carrie Ann-Moss did well playing the role of the spit-fire house wife who is both the trophy wife and the head of the household. Eventually, she uses Fido to make her husband (Bill Connelly) jealous because she feels her husband doesnít show affections. Likewise, the husband doesnít want to get close or emotional to anyone because he may have to kill them when they die. His justification for being a good father and husband is the fact he hasnít tried to eat either of them.

The movie draws parallels to the post-WWII fight on communism. Communism is exemplified though the existence of ZomCon. This company provides security to each city by fencing them in and educating them that old people are dangerous and that questioning authority will only cause trouble. They create a culture of people that are almost as emotionless and obedient as the zombies themselves.

In the end, Fido was both funny and thought-provoking. I recommend this to anyone who enjoyed Shaun of the Dead.
