5.0 out of 5 stars "Why the long face, something eating you?" March 15, 2004
By Crypt
Format:DVD
So far most people reviewing this film are pretty much picking out its flaws, which are many indeed, so I won't bother re-listing them. I will say this though; Bruno Mattei's blatant and shameless ripping off of Goblin's Dawn of the Dead and Alien Contamination soundtracks would have certainly made Edward D. Wood Jr. proud. From reading the reviews I was prepared for the worst when I purchased this dvd. I was actually surprised that it was better than most people seem to give it credit for! Sure it has an amazingly inept "Ed Wood-ian" sort of quality... ok yes, it IS in fact a terrible film, but it does have a lot going for it. #1 - The entertainment value. Like Ed Wood's "classics" this film remains totally enjoyable and even has a certain lovable quality despite the fact that it's such an awful film. It's lots of fun and there's never a dull moment.
#2 - There are some truly effective Zombie sequences. The scenes involving the zombie priest at the mission, the zombie kid coming to life in his fathers arms, the dead native coming to life after his "funeral ceremony". Also the zombie hag with a cat inexplicably ripping out through her stomach made me laugh. It made no sense, but it was still cool. #3 - Last but not least, the gore. As the producers said, without blood and entrails, a film like this would be pointless. This film will make your stomach turn. It goes far beyond Dawn of the Dead as far as blood and guts. Even farther than Lucio Fulci's Zombie. The gore is probably not as disturbing as in Day of the Dead because Tom Savini's fx were just so realistic in that one. However the use of real raw meat and pig guts definitely helped "Hell" live up to the splatter genre and then some.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Hudson Hawk of zombie films November 30, 2002
Format:DVD
This is the zombie film you get when you've already got all of the decent ones, and just need a complete zombie dvd collection. Where does one go when you've managed to buy the whole Romero and Fulci catalog? Well, you can get some good runners up like Burial Ground, Dead Alive, Let Sleeping Corpses Lie, Return Of The Living Dead and Zombie Holocaust, but then what? You can stoop to getting Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things, and if you're able to still live with yourself, you can pick up this and Zombi 3(both associated with Bruno Mattei!). This is for the hardcore zombie movie collector, no doubt about it. That's why I got it. I was also curious, coz for years I had the cruddy VHS copy under the title Night Of The Zombies. In that VHS copy, I could barely see what was going on, the quality was so bad. I basically got this just to SEE it. I'll admit, I watch it once and awhile, but I do warn you-This is pretty bad, even by the low standards of the genre. I know alot of Italian horror fans who disown this film. There's no point in explaining the plot, coz it's not that important or original. The interview with the director is pretty funny. He says himself that he doesn't like his films! So, with that said, buy at your own risk.

5.0 out of 5 stars "I don't like the sound of those drums..." July 11, 2002
By A Customer
Format:DVD
This movie is a classic! Full of wonderfully cheesy diologue, extremely gory special effects, horrible editing, terrible dubbing, and hilarious melodrama, this movie is a high-point in bad zombie film history. It's like "Dawn of the Dead" meets "The Gods Must Be Crazy", complete with out of place stock footage that doesn't even match the quality of the actual film...you've gotta love it! The poster art bears a striking resemblance to Fulci's "Gates of Hell" ( I think that might actually be the same zombie). There are 2 classic vomiting scenes which I laughed so hard at I replayed again for a second laugh. The gore in this movie is so over-the-top and some of it is actually shown in the stock footage. Even the make-up on the living dead is inconsistant. The majority of this film takes place on an island, which adds to the fun. Lots of stock footage of actual tribes dancing in their native dress (these scenes have been edited into the movie to make you actually believe that the cast is witnessing this). The two main actors look so much alike that at times it looks as though the same actor is playing 2 parts. Gratuitous nudity is also involved when the female lead sheads her clothing and dons herself with tribal art to fit in with the natives. Unfortunately, she puts it on her face so badly it makes her look almost dog-like. I'm a huge fan of zombie and cannibal movies and am giving this movie ***** for it's campy entertainment value, unintentional humor, over-the-top gore sequences, and the fact that there actually ARE zombies in this movie. I watched it alone for the first time to spare myself the embarrassment of having wasted money on such a dull film (like I did with the dreadfully boring, unfunny and zombieless "Cannibal Apocalypse"), but now I am going to have to share this one with friends. Yes, this is a bad film, but there's never a dull moment here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not as Bad as You Think! March 31, 2002
Format:DVD
For ZOMBIE MOVIE Lovers Only! Besides the bad acting, plot,
camerawork, and countless stock footage of wild animals,
HELL OF THE LIVING DEAD can be enjoyed, ecspecially if you
like watching how much Director Mattei stole the exact
same soundtrack by Goblin off of George Romero's DAWN OF THE
DEAD. But overall, I laughed and found this movie to be
quite amusing.
