‘Special times require special needs’
My Apocalyptic Thanksgivingis a 2022 American comedy horror drama about a zombie-obsessed, special needs adult searching for his absent mom. Meanwhile, a Korean family and gang compete to become his family.

Directed and co-produced by Charles B. Unger from a screenplay written by
co-producer Richard Soriano. Also produced by Holly Soriano.


“The production values are low, and the acting is mediocre. Think of My Apocalyptic Thanksgiving as a low-budget indie horror version of a seasonal Hallmark movie. It was quite a feat to create that vibe, but Unger and Soriano have succeeded in giving us a feel-good holiday B-movie about special needs people and zombies.” 7 out of 10, Film Threat

“The film’s most disappointing element is the constant return to the fictional zombie show […] However, this is the only thorn in an otherwise lovely film. The writing is sensitive, and the actor portrayals are poignant. This is a delightful, sometimes devastating, portrait of what it means to be a family.” 3.5 out of 5, Maddwolf

“The problems come up quickly when it doesn’t feel like an authentic performance where the lead actor doesn’t have the same condition. This doesn’t help the movie because at times it feels almost insulting to anyone with the same problems. My Apocalyptic Thanksgiving tries but fails to get the bigger message across.” 2 out of 5, Movie Reviews 101

My Apocalyptic Thanksgiving may feel slightly overlong, but the core story about the importance of family is well realised on screen. With many of the cast and crew having friends and family members with special needs, this came from a place of love and I did like the many scenes from the show within the film.” 6 out of 10, The Rotting Zombie
