"It has been 38 years since anything has shaken up the genre quite like Herd."
- Eye for Film
"A same sex couple trapped in a gun-toting Southern American state is the perfect environment for tension even before throwing warring factions and zombie apocalypses into the mix."
- The Hollywood News
"It's a fresh approach that brings new ideas to the genre, highlighting the drama and grisliness while making pointed commentary about people who would rather fight than help each other."
- Shadows On The Wall
"In a cinematic landscape saturated with zombie films that tend to look too much alike, Herd is a bold, introspective addition that raises pertinent questions about human nature, relationships and societal norms."
"Herd proffers commentary on recent and current social issues including pandemic-related and political ones while delivering relationship drama and zombie suspense."
"With stellar performances by Corbin Bernsen, Ellen Adair, and Jeremy Holm, Herd offers itself up as another great example of the “new breed” of zombie fare."
- Scariest Things
"Herd is much like the early Romero work, as it’s actually trying to bring something new to the table as it dives into trauma and homophobia."
- Set the Tape
"If you're reading between the lines, there’s a clear message: Steven Pierce is a rising director to keep an eye on. His feature debut offers a hint of the brilliance to come, and while Herd may not be the final word in zombie narratives, it’s a sure sign that Pierce is a name to remember in the cinematic universe."
- Overly Honest Movie Reviews
"Herd maybe classed as a zombie movie, but it is much more complex and more entertaining than your standard survival thriller."
"Herd mixes the formula up in a number of interesting ways."
