"The first truly romantic flesh-eating corpse movie." -- John Landis
"Zombie Honeymoon scores simultaneously as romantic, tragic, grotesque, and screamingly funny...this strong, well-thesped pic has a real shot at becoming a cult classic." -- Variety
"Expanding the limits of what cinema can do in almost every scene, not since Blue Velvet has a film juxtaposed psychological, visual and audio elements to propel the movie forward with this kind of velocity." -- Film Festival Reporter
“Despite its exploitation title and adroit comic touches, the film is fundamentally serious and remarkably poignant…sure to become an instant cult horror classic…” -- Kevin Thomas, L.A. Times
"Zombie Honeymoon is a unique experience... I believe I can truly say that this is a perfect date movie." -- FilmThreat.com
"Zombie Honeymoon will move your heart, then tear it out!" -- Fangoria Magazine
“Gebroe has crafted a gruesome and compelling little genre-blender… unexpectedly affecting and occasionally deeply disturbing…” -- Dave Davis, www.chud.com
“Oh, and I met a man named Dave Gebroe here, who says I must see his film Zombie Honeymoon, which he describes as his response to my call for a truly romantic horror film.
