Editorial Reviews

Horror icon Tony Todd (Clive Barker’s CANDYMAN series) delivers his most powerful and evil performance as SHADOW, an executed and resurrected serial killer who invades a women’s prison in search of the girl known only as Solitaire (Carla Greene)! Solitaire senses her impending doom and prepares to single-handedly take on Shadow and his army of zombies in a supernatural martial arts showdown! SHADOW: DEAD RIOT is a unique stylistic fusion of Asian-style action, zombie horror and women’s prison drama.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow, it surprised me! March 29, 2006
Well, I had watched the trailer for this film on the Anthropaphagus DVD, and to tell you the truth it looked weak. Needless to say, I went to the store today to check out the new releases. I had already four movies picked out,a nd needed one more. So I went back to the horror section and happened to see this one, the packaging caught my attention, plus it was really cheap. I looked at the cover and immediately recognized it from the trailer I had watched. I tought it was going to suck, but I bought it anyway not expecting much. I watched it tonight and man it surprised the hell out of me. It was pretty entertaining if you like horror movies. I don't think there was any boring part to it. It definetely delivered. Plenty of naked girls, plenty of blood and gore, and even some zombies. I will admit this movie surprised me and turned out a lot better than I had anticipated, I'm glad I bought it out of impulse. If you like horror movies, then give this one a try. I redeemed myself with this one after having bought Anthrapophagus, that was a let down.

5.0 out of 5 stars MISTY MUNDAE PRISON GIRL ZOMBIE FILM! August 11, 2011
The film begins with Tony Todd as Shadow in prison awaiting to be put to death for countless crimes of murder and rape. His teeth are honed into points. During his execution some supernatural stuff happens and a prison riot ensues. Todd and the corpses of his inmates are place in a mass grave....

We now flash forward 20 years to the present. It is now a woman's prison complete with a sadistic lesbian guard (Andrea Langi), shower scene, horny doctor and the new tough girl, Solitaire. Solitaire ends up in solitaire where she touches a carving in the floor made by Todd. She has visions of the ghastly images of his crimes including the torture and killing of a pregnant woman. Misty Mundae (credited as Erin Brown) plays Crystal, the prison girlfriend of Mondo, Solitaire's nemesis.

When blood is spilled on the ground where Todd is buried...all zombie hell breaks loose.

occasional f-bomb, minor sex, lesbian themes, full frontal nudity (only when tasteful and necessary for the plot), girls with tramp stamps, a baby from "It's Alive" (they wanted to make sure everything was covered) excessive blood and gore. Grindhouse cult classic. Deleted scenes include tasteful extended shower scenes. Not for everyone. A Misty Mundae prison girl zombie film, a must for discriminating collectors.

I'm straight with this one. Tony todd is in this one, he really played a damn good role in this one! Out of sight! And that fine female,"salitare", she really know how to kick butt! And on top of that, she is fine! Gotta give this one a play, five stars that is! Thanks Amazon for this movie, because i couldn't find this one at Best Buy!

3.0 out of 5 stars Sciamachy April 13, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
There are shelves full of horror films superior to this one. It is not even in the same category as 28 Days Later, for example, and barely allowable on a list including the low budget 2000 Maniacs. That said, Shadow: Dead Riot nevertheless is better than one might expect. It has a watchable mix of mayhem, sleaze, and dark humor. If much of the cast seems plucked off a Jerry Springer Show, this is appropriate for the inmates of the run-down women's prison in which nearly the entire action takes place. Carla Greene makes her rough-edged character Solitaire sympathetic enough to build suspense when she is put in danger. Most horror fans will find this movie sufficiently entertaining.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome February 10, 2011
By cejohn
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I'm a big Tony Todd and horror fan and I seen this movie when it first came out. I really enjoyed it. Especially since it is a low budget movie. Not a lot of good one but this is one. Special effect are done very well along with story line. I give it 5 zombie stars for the money.

This movie isn't too terrible. I think if anything it is a bit too cliche.

It is borderline supercheez and covers many genre movies just thrown into a blender and yeah, you have this movie...

Part Hong Kong action/martial arts - right down to the talc flying when they land a punch. Part zombie flick, Part women in prison flick... with a dash of Re-animator; especially "Beyond Re-animator".

If you enjoy exploitation action flicks, this film should suit you. It doesn't cover any really new territory, just gives you a hyper reality women in prison movie.

New from Media Blasters on BD and a decent (neo-'grindhouse'style) film. It's lmpressingly low budget, below the belt entertainment that should satisfy anyone who insists on purity of slease. Actually, better done than its production style seems, even when it gets crazy. Moments of cheesy gore will please many but confound those looking for redeeming qualities. Actually has a decent weird soundtrack and the A/V quality is great for what it is. It does what it intends to do. Your Blu-ray collection look a little too Hollywood? Go for it; your collection could use some trash.

I only watched a few minutes of this film and turned it off, as I found it unwatchable and not entertaining.

1.0 out of 5 stars Just Horrible
Tony Todd can not recreate the popularity he received from Candy Man. This movie cheapens his artistic ability. Do not purchase.
