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)

1001 Movies ... my own version (1990's) (127 movies items)

" Notes: 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 "

"Before Lord of the Rings Peter Jackson was a horror comedy genius. This might be the funniest movie that is also one of the bloodiest things committed to film. "
