Containing trademark Dante humour with his love for the genre, ‘Burying the Ex’ is a blast to watch and is in no doubt a must-see for anyone who wants to see ‘Shaun of the Dead’ meets ‘Death Becomes Her’ via ‘Necromantik’ and still has time to show itself as a standout in the genre. It’s dark, it’s dangerous, it’s Dante at his best! –BloodGuts

Burying the Ex finds Dante at his most playful, but with his precision and intelligence fully intact. –Filmmaker Magazine
For a composer in an long-term musical affair with one of modern horror’s most legendary directors, it’s almost insane to think that Joseph LoDuca has never hooked up with Joe Dante, a wackily colorful filmmaker who’s penchant for movie in-jokes and go-for-broke energy has certainly put him into the same movie geek-as-filmmaker league as Sam Raimi. But while it’s certainly taken a while for this meeting of the minds to happen, “Burying the Ex” delivers the cartoonish goods as Dante encourages LoDuca’s manic talents to go for broke in the service of putting an unwanted, undead girlfriend from hell firmly in the grave. -Daniel Schweiger, Film Music Magazine

Boasting incredibly clever writing and a striking visual style that celebrates its cinematic roots, “Burying the Ex” is one hell of an entertaining zom-com. The new flick from “Gremlins” director Joe Dante features a colorful ambiance that truly resembles the genre’s greatest achievements from the ‘80s, against which its gleefully gory story is made that much more amusingly idiosyncratic. –The Entertainer!
