You know that incredible tagline: Some things won't stay down... Even after they die. Boy are they right! As my 100th review, I thought no other movie would qualify that was epic enough that at the same time had no one who had reviewed it. Sometimes i would even like to get hit on the head so the part in my mind which knows a great deal of the movie becomes forgotten; and i can experience it for t... read more

Be forewarned, this is grade-B all the way, so if you are a no-fun fuddy-duddy like my mom or need an Oscar pedigree for every film, you watch, you will probably find this equal parts tedious and repellent. However, for those with a subversive wit and tolerance for bad taste and a ridiculous amount of blood and gore, look no further. This is your movie.

With an exact budget and a lot of, but that great imagination, Peter Jackson leads us to an orgy of blood, guts and very much humor. With very his technology of filming (an aim in continuous movement that introduces the spectator in the work as one more observer), a few guessed right special effects and a script descabelladamente absurd, hilariously and grotesquely, this good man and better person... read more

Description: In 1957, a rare rat monkey is brought from Sumatra to a zoo in New Zeland. The local Lionel Cosgrove (Timothy Balme) is a shy young man, having a complex due to the death of his father, and is completely dominated by his evil and possessive mother Vera (Elizabeth Moody). In a small shop nearby his house, Lionel meets the very superstitious attendant Paquita Maria Sanchez (Diana Peñalver), who believes he is the man of her life. Paquita invites Lionel to go to the zoo with her, but Vera follows them and is bitten by the weird Sumatrian monkey. The monkey's bite turns her into a zombie, and every person she bites also becomes a z ... (more)

"03.11. PC/TV, 1st viewing DIRECTED BY Peter Jackson Might as well watch the remaining 5 of the 31 horror flicks now. This was creative. "

"Re-watch - Oct. 20th Do I even need to comment on Dead Alive at this point? If you haven't seen it, you need to correct that immediately. If you have then you most likely know what a creative and delightful film it is, and I don't need to go into details to back that up. I'm just glad I have it in my collection to watch whenever I please."

"17.10. Jonnekin sinne nostalgian tienoillehan tämäkin katselukokemus meni. Näyttely on kautta linjan kökköä, future filmin dvd luokatonta paskaa ja tehosteet edelleen raikkaan kekseliäitä. Lopun tehostejakso alkaa tosin jo useamman katselukerran jälkeen puuduttaa pituudellaan. Voi olla, että jos olisin tänä päivänä nähnyt Braindeadin ensimmäisen kerran, en pitäisi siitä ollenkaan."

"Katsottu: 18.1.2017, Makuunin DVD Sumatralta Uuteen-Seelantiin tuotu rotta-apina alkaa tartuttaa ihmisiä zombeiksi tässä erittäin verisessä splatter-leffassa, joka on paikoittain myös melko hauska. En ole splatter-elokuvien aivan suurin ystävä, mutta tämä oli kyllä melko hyvä pläjäys. "

A very good movie

“To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this movie but I remember it very well. Indeed, it was the first movie directed by Peter Jackson that I had the pleasure to see and I really loved the damned thing. The first time I watched it, I must have been 13-14 years old and I had definitely never seen something similar before. I mean, such a combination of horror and comedy was quite unknown to me at that point. Above all, the nastiness, the over-the-topness of the whole thing was just really impressive. I remember watching this thinking 'How could they get away with this?!?' but, then, a scene even worse would show up and it kept going on and on... Back then, I watched it many times and it became a huge cult-classic for me and my buddies. It was the last time Peter Jackson made so” read more

"3/9 The humor was notably improved from Bad Taste and Meet the Feebles. The fighting priest was childish, but the vile uncle was a decent comical appearance especially during the final mayhem, lots of gore-based or otherwise disgusting comedy worked (the dinner scene with the mom and the pudding) and the scene where the main character is chasing and beating the mutant baby in the park was good slapstick. The plot went on nicely because it was simple, but still had a lot going on, so while nothi"
