I Kick Ass For The Lord!

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.

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)

"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."

Elokuvapäiväkirja 2017 (315 movies items)

"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."
