Critic Reviews for Hail to the Deadites

All Critics (27)

The film's one-hour, 19-minute running time frequently seems ponderous because the fan conventions all look the same, regardless of where they are held. You've seen one hotel ballroom; you've seen them all.

Villeneuve captures the cheery cult vibe of the whole thing, also reinforcing just how special these delightfully goofy and grisly movies truly are.

... Hail to the Deadites is, without question, a loving tribute to the people who have enjoyed this particular bit of punk rock horror since its inception.

July 23, 2021 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

At an hour and 19 minutes long, Hail To The Deadites suffers from the typical blight of the mega-fan: loving your subject so much that you can't pick apart the good from the bad.

Steve Villeneuve's affectionate exploration of Evil Dead fandom: memorabilia, cosplay, and passion. Primarily made up of interviews with cast, crew, and fans, broken up with songs and fan-made film clips.

Hail to the Deadites is an example of what happens when someone depicts fans without questioning their fandom.
