I love the original short, but this is a boring and kitschy mess. It does not have enough plot to fill the runtime and fills the gaps with lame references to horror classics. Sure, those old horror movies are great, but paying homage to them in a never ending parade of in-your-face, yet out of place visual gags doesn't elevate this film in any way. In the end all the far reaching references cannot paint over the fact that the movie fails to sustain itself with enough of an original plot or engaging characters, and so it just collapses; yet sadly, just like for the reanimated pets, its natural death is not the end of this film and it drags on way too long.

It started off well but then the movie becomes stretched beyond belief. A good 30 minutes is superflous.
