What's more, it's WIDESCREEN in that collection -- I watched it. As for this stand-alone version, the product description says FULLSCREEN.
So you can either buy it cheap, in widescreen, with 7 other horror films. Or buy it expensive, fullscreen, with no other films.
As for OFFICE OF THE DEAD's quality -- it's NOT a horror film. Doesn't even try to be a horror film. It's an office comedy (e.g., Office Space, Downsize). There's this computer software firm, and the software turns most of the office workers into rampaging zombies. But there is NO gore, NO blood, and NO scares. Just wacky, shuffling zombies vs. snarky cubicle workers trying to survive.
I don't need blood or gore for my horror, but there are no scares or suspense either. It's just not horror. It's a comedy. That would be okay, if it were funny. It's not. No big laughs. Some weak smiles, but as a comedy, it's pretty flat and tepid.
There's one funny moment. Raj, a nerdy computer geek, tries to pick up the CEO's sexy assistant as they're crawling away from zombies. Raj nervously whispers (so the zombies can't hear them) his suggestions to take the assistant out to dinner after this is all over, but she can't hear him. She keeps saying, "What? What are you saying? What are you asking me?" But Raj keeps whispering, failing to communicate, in typical nervous nerdy fashion.Read more ›

HOWEVER, I was very very impressed with the cast of Office of the Dead. Not only was I engaged, but highly entertained at the concept of a technology that can actually make angry people happy (maybe we should bring this to my work if this technology every materializes).
The trio Ben, Raj and Liz shine together and have great on-screen chemistry (and are easy on the eyes) which is important if the audience is going to stay engaged. Definitely witty and worth your time and bucks!
