“Make no mistake – Midget Zombie Takeover is a low-budget horror comedy with cheesy dialogue, wooden acting and strange music. The more Glenn Berggoetz makes movies – the more we wish he had a bigger budget.” 4 out of 10, BZ Film
” …despite its outrageous title and incompetent cast, Midget Zombie Takeover is enjoyable, at least for forgiving fans of grassroots indie horror. It’s not scary or slick or atmospheric. Its story is wholly unoriginal […] But it has some funny jokes and, after a slow start, shambles along at a mostly decent pace.” Hollywood Investigator
” …my tolerance for lazy effort is waning. It isn’t enough to want to make a movie, as Midget Zombie Takeover proves with ineptitude to spare. One must want to create a story, a vision. That, or pile on the gore and nudity by the bucket load. Never do neither.” Horror News
“Ok, it’s silly and ridiculous and kinda cheap and lousy, but in the right mood, Midget Zombie Takeover can also be a lot of fun – check it out with your zombie buddies today!” Indie Film Cafe
“This indie horror/comedy, shot in Indiana, is just out to make you chuckle for 73 minutes as you watch some of the dumbest characters ever put on the screen deal with a rather lackluster zombie outbreak. The zombies never come off as all that threatening, but they certainly do to the teenage characters.” Life Between Frames
“Midget Zombie Takeover can be testy at times as far as pacing goes, but nonetheless, the amateurism provides a close-to-home nature, the action is kind of fun, and it’s pleasant and harmless all the more.” The Steve Pulaski Message Board
