The ReturnedAfter the dead zombie virus had spread throughout the world, people had found a unique way of treatment. It is called 'protein back from the death' which could be imprisoned inside the virus’s host. When being injected daily, the 'returner' could live as never bitten, although the virus still lived in their veins. When people found that the protein reserves were diminishing, chaos immediately started.Keywords:

Critic Reviews of "The Returned"Globe and MailMarch 28, 2014
This is a serious, austere film that feels as if it's barely restraining the B-movie within. In the end, it fights itself to a draw.Toronto StarMarch 27, 2014
Carballo also fails to capitalize on the climate of paranoia the script attempts to engender throughout.RogerEbert.comFebruary 14, 2014
Carballo offsets the lack of surprise with such efficient suspense builders as propulsive music, ambient noise, realistic lighting and judicious handheld camerawork while efficiently explaining the science and politics behind what is happening.NPRFebruary 13, 2014
Pivotal scenes dive too deep into melodrama, and there's something inevitably sterile about a script that includes only scenes that propel the plot or provide obvious foreshadowing.Los Angeles TimesFebruary 13, 2014
Though an admirable shake-up of the typically overbearing, munch-intensive undead yarn, "The Returned" is still a far cry from the smarts-and-shocks zombie allegories George Romero mastered.Village VoiceFebruary 11, 2014
Carballo squeezes an impressive amount of exposition into news reports and medical briefings, but Holden-Ried's and Hampshire's performances are what ground the film ...Canada.comMarch 28, 2014
Director Manuel Carballo seems to be trying for the psychological unease of Blindness, or perhaps of something by Cronenberg, but it's never more than artificial terror wrapped in bland social commentary.Flick FilosopherFebruary 19, 2014
Cuttingly sharp and incisive SF horror; a chillingly polite film about the fascism that rises quickly up in a moment of fearful crisis.rec.arts.movies.reviewsFebruary 18, 2014
A zombie movie in which the normal people are to be feared. Modest in scope, but very effective.We Got This CoveredFebruary 17, 2014
The Returned is a zombie movie without the zombies, generating scares through social commentary and human nature, which actually makes for a welcome change of pace.NYC Movie GuruFebruary 14, 2014
Refreshingly intelligent, subversive and psychologically terrifying. It's much more than your average zombie film.The PlaylistFebruary 14, 2014
Marred by obvious plot developments...and a disappointingly lazy reliance on the very clichés the movie mostly tries to avoid...The Returned is never quite clever or confident enough to become the subversive zombie film it wants to be.
