Reviews [click links to read more]:

Inmate Zero is […] well-acted and undeniably a well-shot horror film. So don’t let the “Americanized” retitle and artwork lead to you believe Russell Owen’s take on the zombie genre is a cheapjack bore fest: it’s packed with plenty of zom-action and top-notch gore effects for horror hounds who like it bloody n’ icky.” B&S About Movies

“The zombies in Inmate Zero (or Patients of a Saint) are pretty well and convincingly animated, they look bizarre and are mostly creepy. The visual component is complemented by the sound (zombie growls, squeals, and screams), so the complete atmosphere feels quite scary.” Horror Cellar

” …the gore and carnage are worth sitting through this. As zombie films have become annoying and preachy of late, Inmate Zero is action-packed and crisp. Directed by Russell Owen, Inmate Zero is a lot of fun…and maybe a little too pertinent to our current predicament.” Zisi Emporium for B Movies
