Product Description

Violent criminals who can’t be killed are shooting up Los Angeles, and the investigation leads LAPD detectives Roger Mortis (Treat Williams) and Doug Bigelow (Joe Piscopo) to a mysterious pharmaceutical firm. But when Mortis is suddenly murdered, his coroner girlfriend and loose cannon partner discover the company’s ‘resurrection machine’ that turns Roger into the walking dead. Now the department’s most unstoppable cops must battle zombie hit men, a butcher shop gone berserk and the deceased industrialist (the legendary Vincent Price in one of his final film roles) who may hold the key to it all. But can Mortis solve his own homicide case before he completely decomposes? Darren McGavin (THE NIGHT STALKER), Lindsay Frost (THE RING) and Keye Luke (GREMLINS) co-star in this wild combination of explosive action thriller and gory zombie comedy directed by Mark Goldblatt (THE PUNISHER) and featuring grisly make-up effects and monsters by Steve Johnson (SPECIES).

Dead Heat kinda fell into obscurity right away, so I don't think it even reached cult film status. This is one of those that you may have caught late at night in the old glory days of HBO. It's not a horror film, it's more of your typical buddy action/comedy in the vein of Tango & Cash, but with a few horror elements thrown in. Zombies are roaming around robbing jewlery stores and causing other assorted mischief due to a new resurrection machine. The zombies are pretty much normal looking people who are a pain in the ass to kill. Some are a little yucky and decomposed too. Treat Williams and Joe Piscopo are the cops on the case. Naturally, Williams being the straight cop and Piscopo being the wisecracking tough guy cop. I've always liked Williams, and though his performance is nothing to shout about, I enjoy his presence. Piscopo is another story. In general I do like Piscopo, but his role in this film is I guess a real love it or hate it affair. The humor of the movie is almost all set on him, yet he is probably the unfunniest wisecracking cop I have ever seen in a movie. He has absolutely no delivery and the jokes seem forced and just plain bad. It's strange coz he is so not funny that it actually becomes kinda funny. Funny for reasons other than intended. Plus, he's supposed to be a big, buff badass, yet he's always saying stuff like, "Oh, that's gross!", "That's really disgusting", and "I think I'm gonna throw up". These aren't tough guy lines, and he comes off sounding like a wuss. Steve Johnson's fx are pretty good. We have a mean looking mutant biker guy, a disintegrating woman, and a Chinese restaurant full of reanimated ducks and pigs and stuff. Williams' half melted face in the last 10 minutes looks good too.Read more ›

This is the epitome of the type of movie Anchor Bay releases on DVD, crisp, clean, clear and celestial. Dead Heat is by far a cult movie that can be seen as both an action and horror movie. Our leads, LAPD detectives Roger Mortis (Treat Williams) and Doug Bigelow (Joe Piscopo) are investigating crimes, which are being committed by people who are deceased. When Roger is killed during the investigation, he is brought back to life, by the same element that is resurrecting these criminals, to solve the mystery.

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!

Format: DVD
I had no idea this movie even existed until a few months before its release on DVD. I never saw it in theaters when it came out in 1988, and by the looks of its box office receipts I wasn't the only one that missed it (ahem). I was only 11 back then and it was an R-rated film after all, so there's my excuse. How it escaped my keen horror radar in the following 16 years is a complete mystery, however. You'd think that I would have caught it some late night on television or on video at least once in all those years, but DEAD HEAT proved as elusive for me as a successful movie career did to Joe Piscopo.

While Joe Piscopo may not have had a stellar career in movies, as soon as I found out that he was in DEAD HEAT and that the film is billed as half "buddy cop comedy" and half "zombie horror", that's all I needed to hear. I was sold. In a rare move for me, I bought the DVD without even having seen the movie. My instincts proved correct once again as I found out that zombies plus Joe Piscopo equals comedy gold! Actually, gold might be overstating it. Comedy silver? Maybe. At the very least, DEAD HEAT is pure comedy bronze!

It doesn't take long before it strays from your normal buddy cop formula in a big way. When Roger (Treat Williams) bites the big one in a doggie euthanasia room while fighting a hefty undead two-faced biker (don't ask me about the two faces, I don't get it either) and is resurrected shortly thereafter, it becomes a race against time as he and Doug (Joe Piscopo) try to find Roger's killer. Can they find his killer before his body decomposes and he turns into worm food? Can Doug keep from becoming a walking corpse himself? Who's behind this zombie crime wave? Did Joe Piscopo's career tank after SNL or what?

This is the story of two L.A. detectives Roger Mortis ( Treat Williams) and Doug Bigelow ( Joe Piscopo) who are solving crimes caused by undead criminals caused by a mysterious medical company that has a machine that resurrects the dead into zombies. Roger unfotunately gets killed, but he gets brought back to life but only for 13 hours before he can decompose into dust, he must solve his own homicide and find the mastermind behind it.
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.
