Format:Blu-ray
While I have an undeniable soft spot in my heart for the flesh eating undead, the zombie genre has been a bit overworked lately with projects (whether in film, TV, or books) of varying degrees of quality. Let's face it, the walking dead are everywhere! I'm certainly not complaining, but it's becoming increasingly difficult to find entertainment that still feels fresh and vital. Brothers Howard and Jon Ford, however, have come up with a surprisingly effective survival story in "The Dead" that looks great, feels different, and yet still honors the old school traditions of the classic Romero zombie. It's a simple film, almost minimalist in fact, that doesn't utilize a lot of expository dialogue or develop a grandiose plot. It simply puts you into a realistic scenario set in the barren environment of rural Africa. The desolate country and atmospheric quiet of the film begs the question "Where do you escape to if there's nowhere to go?"

The film introduces us to Rob Freeman as the lone American survivor of an evacuation plane's crash. Crossing the war-torn country, there simply appears to be no end to the horde of undead. He meets up with a local soldier who is attempting to locate his missing son, and the two forge an unlikely friendship and alliance. The film doesn't attempt to explain why the country is overrun with zombies, and it offers little backstory or actual character development. Instead, it showcases the two men as they travel the countryside looking for any sign of hope. If you are looking for non-stop action and carnage, this film may not fulfill your expectation. This tale is much quieter, more introspective. The success of the movie relies on the unsettling mood as zombies are present in almost every background shot.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Dead January 8, 2012
Format:DVD
An evacuation flight crash lands off the coast of Africa and now an American must try and survive against a zombie outbreak in rugged foreign terrain. I've been wanting to see this for awhile so I'm glad it was finally released. The movie just looks beautiful and of course that can be attributed to the wonderful locales. And then to add some rather amazing looking zombies to the mix, it adds a wonderful dichotomy. To be honest, the story is pretty standard stuff. People trying to survive in a land overrun by the undead. But it's the way that the material is handled that makes this movie so good. Also, it's really well acted. And actually, I'm not a hundred percent sure I like the lead. At times he was great and other he kind of hammed it up. But everyone else was pretty stellar. And then there's the FX work. Right from the get-go I was blown away. The first zombie shown had some incredibly make-up and a certain injury that kind of made me wince. Plenty of blood, plenty of zombie action and plenty of humanity. A great movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dead but smells sweeeeet January 24, 2012
Format:DVD
I was too impatient to wait for the USA release so, I've had this a while under PAL version from AmazonUK. Trust me, if you will, you will enjoy this film if you harken to the Romero Zombies that move slow, are in various stages of creeping necrosis, and quietly get close to you before, you are aware they are getting in arms reach. I really have enjoyed this film and after just a few months, have watched it about 9 times so far, and it has not gotten old yet - so wait and rent first if you wish, but my advice is to NOT be afraid of purchase. AND if you want extra horror --- check out the "making of video diary" (if they add it to the USA release)and see how much garbage they had to put up with just in trying to get this made, from illness to Port Authority issues and local Police issues.

3.0 out of 5 stars 3 stars for originality but lacks character development.
It's different but it isn't the best zombie movie I've ever seen. Not much character development. Original in that it takes place in the desert.
