ZOMBIE WITH A SHOTGUN (2019) Reviews and overview


Zombie with a Shotgun is a 2019 American science-fiction horror feature film and the movie adaptation of the web series and short of the same name.

Written and directed by Hilton Ariel Ruiz (6.6.66 Beyond the Halls of Paradise), the movie stars Braeden Baade, Kathryn Kuhn, Kyle Hester and Emilie Paap.


Aaron and Rachel are on the run due to the fact that Aaron is infected by what seems to be a zombie virus. As the story unfolds, they find that there is more to this infection than it seems. For some reason, Aaron has not developed the full zombie virus. He seems to be trapped in a transitional phase which grants him certain abilities.

One of them is the ability to communicate with other zombies. This makes Aaron a valuable pawn as he’s being pursued by shadowy figures with ulterior motives. Now he must stay alive (or undead) long enough to figure out the source of his infection…


“This feels like the origin story for a series of films to go with the comics. But from what I’ve seen of them that would take a fairly large budget to pull off properly. Unfortunately, given the budget Zombie With a Shotgun had, and the results it bought, the property may be better off staying on the printed page where budgets are less of an issue.” Voices from the Balcony
