Time for a brainy look at brain-eating zombies, and this one delivers like molars to skull.

Although what we're given isn't anything new, and despite fizzling to a stop instead of going out with a bang, Doc of the Dead is still a fun trip down this particular road.

It's lighthearted, breezy and overall a fun piece of pop trivia.

Doc of the Dead certainly has a lot on its undead-loving mind, it just never figures out what exactly it's trying to say.

Audience Reviews for Doc Of The Dead


The Epix documentary Doc of the Dead provides a comprehensive look at the zombie infection that has taken hold in pop culture. The film begins with an overview of the zombie's evolution throughout cinema and how they became the flesh eating monsters that we know today. It also looks at some of the cultural impacts that the undead have had in comics, literature, and entertainment attractions. Featuring hosts of filmmakers and various experts discussing the influences that have contributed to the zombie phenomenon, a variety of opinions are presented. Yet as interesting as some of these discussions are, it's kind of a scattershot of disconnected topics. Additionally, the tone is largely intent on fan service rather than objective analysis. Though Doc of the Dead is a little over-congested and haphazard, it's also a fun look at one of the more fascinating subgenres of horror.
