Editorial Reviews

Healthy doses of blood-drenched gore, corn-fed swamp girl nudity, unrelenting excitement, and serial/western star Buster Krabbe (Flash Gordon) highlight this drive-in classic of low budget terror. Featuring restored, rarely-seen footage and newly transferred from mint, newly discovered elements, this terrifying story of zombies created by a stray meteor comes complete with alligator mayhem, damsels in distress, and a whole lot o' bloody, backwoods fun! Terror Lands... Evil Grows.

4.0 out of 5 stars ALIEN DEAD deserves more credit... January 14, 2006
I bought this dvd and was completely surprised! I was not expecting anything at all, due to the other reviews I read about this movie. This movies plot was very interesting and somewhat similar to ZOMBIE LAKE, but a lot better. Basically comes down to water zombies. I was completely surprised with the intro to the film and the really cool and subtle soundtrack. The acting lacks a lot, but that actually makes it more fun to watch. For the budget it had the zombies actually look really cool.

2.0 out of 5 stars Let Down October 14, 2004
Normally I am a big fan of cheap, cheesy 1970s horror films, especially if they take place in swamps and star aging has-beens. So you'd think I'd love this film. Nope. For one thing it is too self-conscious: it actually TRIES to be funny but isn't. For another thing, whatever redeeming qualities the first half of the film may have, by the time you get to the second half it is so repetitious that it become extremely plodding. And there is no payoff at the ending because THE FILM HAS NO ENDING! Somehow Ray forgot to give the film either any sense of resolution or some sort of shock. I'd settle for even for a poorly done shock. But no, the film just ends when it could have similarly ended after the first 25 minutes.

Even worse, the prologue Ray added to the beginning of the movie some time after he finished filming and everyone had gone home manages to make the non-ending even more of a non-ending. Now THAT was an accomplishment!

3.0 out of 5 stars For Bad Film Lovers Only! A "How-not-to"... June 7, 2004
Very bad, even for the price. I heard Fred Olen Ray spent $12,000 on this film and I'd like to audit his bookkeeping records because this does not even look like a $12,000 film. There is a lot of badly done day-for-night shooting, the edits are choppy and uneven, the FX and sound are subpar by any standard..
I am a big fan of low budget videos and Fred Olen Ray.This is not without enjoyment,though more of a learning tool than a so bad its good classic..

2.0 out of 5 stars Pretty awful but strangely atmospheric zombie movie February 10, 2007
A Kid's Review
Filmed in the swampy inland of Florida in 1980, "The Alien Dead" is a horrendously low-budget zombie movie. The premise is that a space-born disease infected a bunch of bayou rednecks and after they finished up all the alligators they start eating the locals.

The acting is utterly terrible, everyone sounds like they're reading a script at a rehearsal. The only good actor is veteran Buster Crab, who does a good Southern accent and plays the old "Pappy" pretty well. Everyone else has the most hideously affected accent, and they go right back to non-accented speech as soon as they start to get scared.

OK now, for those into zombie lore, as I am: first off, these are more like the zombies of "28 Days Later" than Romero, as they are actually still alive, just diseased. They are also able to use weapons, like axes and pitchforks. The makeup consists of Halloween masks for the male zombies and the women, interestingly, are mostly leggy hot blonds with white and black face paint. The music is one of the best parts of the movie, I think. It's that eerie 70s-80s synth music like you hear in Romero's early "Dead" movies which, even though it's cheap, is kind of spooky in an 80s horror movie way.

The zombie carnage in this film is actually not THE worst I've seen. Most of the victims just get knocked out, spit blood, and get dragged off screen to become food. There is one surprisingly good vore scene with a hot blond girl who gets knocked down, a female zombie rips her hand off and munches, while she writhes and vomits blood. Then, still alive, she dribbles more blood as her other arm is gnawed by a zombie guy and her throat is chewed.

All in all not the worst zombie movie ever, but far from the best.

1.0 out of 5 stars Pornos have better production values.... July 19, 2004
even homemade ones. I knew this was a bad movie, I didn't mind that. But the whole production makes this unwatchable. For instance, the whole opening scene on the lake looks like it was lit with a match. You cannot make out anything because it's so dark. Just because something is shot at night doesn't mean you don't light the scene!
Even if you like bad z horror movies, I say stay clear of this one. Buy something like Zombie Bloodbath or Children of the Living Dead. Those movies are horrible as well, but at least you can see what's going on.

4.0 out of 5 stars So funny! October 9, 2009
The first time I saw this old movie, I laughed all through it.It was sooo cheap. And the actors? SURPRISE there arent any! I'ts just a buch of local Yokals somebody convinced to be in their movie.The old lady with the shotgun...Or was it a pitchfork? Oh well. She was particularly Bad, but So fun to watch as she can barely keep from smiling while she's supposed to be horrified.That to me is the main reason to get a film like this. Of course it's not Romero. DUH. You want Romero, go watch Romero, this is an example of getting a movie made,when you really don't have the money to make it. But you go ahead and do it regardless! If your a spoiled kid who demads his HD, and Hollywood blockbusters, don't bother with this. This is for people who simply enjoy old, home made, low budget schlock. You like bell bottoms? You like plaid shirts, and sideburns? JACKPOT!
