Top Customer Reviews
The movie itself isn't suppose to be taken seriously, at least that is how I watched it. Joe Piscopo provides many one liners that are really funny, and one liners can be hard to pull off. Treat Williams also provides some dry and wry humor. It's cool that Vincent Price was in this movie, which gives it the official horror stamp of approval. There are plenty of dummies, fake blood, and cheesy effects to keep you going. It also has this buddy cop vibe to it, now it isn't Lethal Weapon or anything, but still a buddy cop movie. The sour cream on the taco is it was made in the 1980s! So if you love those late night cop movies and have a taste for things that are undead, you get them both in the same eighty-four minutes!
A highly entertaining, gory and funny mixture of sci-fi, horror, action, buddy cop and comedy with great make-up and monster effects by Steve Johnson, Vincient Price and Darren Mcgavin ( A Christmas Story) co-star as the bad guys who own the medical company. There is also plenty of action, witty humor, a memorable Chinese butcher shop scene involving undead meat, gore, and a nice twist in the end. This DVD offers excellent picture and sound quality all thanks to Anchor Bay's Divamax, great extras such as deleted scenes ( Scenes that had to avoid the X rating when this movie came out in 1988), Commentary by the director and writer, Poster-and-still gallery, Original storyboard art, MIFED promo, Widescreen, theatrical trailer.
I recommend this movie to fans of zombie movies, action flicks and horror comedies.
