“We do get the typical characters you would expect to see in the zombie movie, leaving us waiting to see how they survive the zombie attacks. The performances don’t add too much to the film, but nobody is bad, they will play into the characters’ traits through the film […] World Ends at Camp Z is a by the book zombie outbreak movie.” Movies Review 101
” …follows in the same vein as The Walking Dead’s earlier seasons did – you know, when people were actually watching and invested in the characters – and focuses on survival instincts and relationships […] World Ends at Camp Z is a bite-sized chiller which delivers the goods from beginning to its nasty (and on point) end!” 4/5 Reel Reviews
“The characters are variations of classic stereotypes in the hands of skilled actors with a genuine delivery. The film’s set up like a slasher but foreshadows a supernatural invasion instead. See, we’re encouraged to expect zombies, from the promo to the premise, but they could’ve just as well been a surprise twist.” 3/4 Tales of Terror
