Day 22 of 31 days of horror: Dead Alive (1992)

The devil is amongst us. Stay back, boy. This calls for divine intervention!

Peter Jackson is best known for the Lord of the Rings series. Long before that came a movie called Braindead, that was released in North America under the name Dead Alive. I recognize the movie cover, but now that I’m watching it, I don’t think I’ve ever seen it before.

It is terrible. And wonderful. It has all the makings of a great horror comedy. Ridiculous premise, bad acting, eccentric characters, and more blood and gore than the average person can stomach. Several laugh out loud moments. The scene in the park where Lionel is punching the zombie baby and everyone just watches (and one guy laughs)…LMAO. And the party scene where the one guy yells “I’m sorry I called Nabokov a pedophile!” as he’s being attacked. And then later he pops off with “Some of my best friends are pedophiles!” Reminded me of this one person who posts the same couple books in all the book groups all the time. Zombie status confirmed. Anyway, if you like cheesy zombie movies where the gore flows freely, you’ll like this one.
