Editorial Reviews

A band of crusading knights escorts the Holy Grail through a plague-ridden countryside, destined for a distant land. Hunted by assassins, the knights venture into the forbidden Valley of Black Death. What they discover is even more terrifying than the plague and the ruthless killers hot on their trail; the Valley of Black Death is home to the undead. Overrun by hordes of flesh eating zombies, their only chance for survival is a mysterious maiden who can guide them out. Their final, chilling journey (to either death or success) becomes the ultimate battle of men vs. undead as they face a non-stop barrage of gruesome, murderous walking dead.

3.0 out of 5 stars I'M NOT DEAD YET. January 29, 2014
Format:DVD
In 1349 during the Black Plague in Britain a group of knights lead by a priest (Feth Greenwood) are on a secret mission, which you already know is that they carry the Holy Grail which unfortunately is not an effective zombie weapon. They travel through the valley of the cursed, one that looks like it should have a wizard named "Tim" and a killer bunny with fangs, but it doesn't, just zombies.

Finally somebody got this Black Plague thing correct, it was zombies. I really was growing tired of that rat/flea/sanitation global warming nonsense. Eventually they encounter Badriyah (Vivien Vilela) a "witch" who knows some earth magic and more importantly how to deal with zombies. Oh yeah, there are some bad guys after them too.

The film is consumed with them traveling over desolate land. You can easily skip about the first 30 minutes. The movie shows "hordes" of zombies in the distant, but it was too low budget for them to hack up more than a half dozen or so at a time. For historical cheese "Vikingdom" is better. And for zombies, just pick one.

Great historical film. Should be on the "The History Channel" right after "Noah's Ark."

Sex and nudity (Vivien Vilela). Normally I don't comment on the sex scenes, but this one had an incredible amount of slurping kissing. It was funny to listen to. 3 stars for stupidity enjoyment.

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent but low budget historical horror January 13, 2014
Format:DVD
I absolutely love when filmmakers or authors can take a few liberties with history and create an entertaining horror story out of it. Heck, I’m even willing to overlook a few historical inaccuracies here and there if the story is good enough. And if they can throw zombies in the mix? Wow…I’m definitely there. The upcoming film release KNIGHT OF THE DEAD is a decent historical horror flick that is certainly worthy of checking out, however some viewers might not enjoy the low-budget aspect of it.

Personally, I enjoyed this film overall. It does have its flaws, but they are primarily due to the lack of budget. If you can look past that and take the film for what it is, you might actually enjoy it.

KNIGHT OF THE DEAD is shot decently however I think there are too many transition shots in certain scenes; this makes for a dizzying ride when you’re trying to track the action onscreen. Thankfully, this only happens a couple of times, so it’s not too terrible of a nuisance.

The acting is not bad, but it’s not great either. I have certainly seen worse, for sure. Likewise, the special effects are just…there. There’s a lot of CG blood sprays and whatnot, which I do not like for the most part, however there are also several good practical effects shots as well. A couple of characters are disemboweled, which looks pretty good onscreen.

I am disappointed with the zombie effects, however. They’re almost nonexistent. Most of the zombies are just actors with faces painted white or green…and a few dabs of gunk or blood here and there. If I’m watching a zombie flick, I want to see rotting flesh and decay.

Several of the reviews I read for KNIGHT OF THE DEAD mentioned a lack of color in the film and how drab it looks.

Look. I’m not going to mess you. I’m going to honest right up front and tell you that I enjoyed KNIGHT OF THE DEAD. If you’d truly like to know why, as well as what I found sub-par to the whole experience, then you’re free to go ahead and read on, especially after the below disclaimer. The short story? I tend to enjoy B movies. In fact, I tend to enjoy them more than the average bloke? And do you want to know why? That’s because I can relate to the minds who conceive, pen, and complete B movies. They’re generally folks like me – folks who’d love nothing more than getting together with a bunch of friends and a camcorder and making their own tidy, little epic. It doesn’t have to be perfect. It doesn’t have to be all that inspired. The dirty little secret is there’s more heart and soul in the frames they shoot than in anything I’ve ever seen from Spike Lee.

Now, as promised, here’s my personal disclaimer …

(NOTE: The following review will contain minor spoilers necessary solely for the discussion of plot and/or characters. If you’re the kind of reader who prefers a review entirely spoiler-free, then I’d encourage you to skip down to the last three paragraphs for my final assessment. If, however, you’re accepting of a few modest hints at ‘things to come,’ then read on …)

A band of knights tasked with escorting the Holy Grail through a dark country get more than they bargained for when the earn the ire of ‘an area man’ who happens to be a bit of a local warlord. Their only escape is through the Valley of the Black Death, a zombie-infested wasteland with more nooks, crannies, and crevasses than any God-made world should have.
