“Writer/director Ben Samuels and company earn accolades for an inventive approach to a twice-told and then some tale, and bonus points for a spectacular practical effect of conjoined zombie piglets. But actors inexperienced for the task at hand coupled with uneventful act two interludes make 6:15 a more routine zombie film than its premise promises.” Ian Sedensky, Culture Crypt
“On a positive note, the gore effects are frankly pretty spectacular […] You will find a few good scares, but certainly nothing to keep you up at night. Initially, I will say that the filmmakers eked out a bit of unease and dread (in the cornfields), but the terrible depiction of the government agencies (all throughout the film) was an annoying distraction.” Michael Klug, Horrorfreak News
