Format:DVD
The small Aussie burg of Berkelely receives a deadly rain of meteorites, turning people hit by the celestial stones into the walking dead. It doesn't take long for our main characters to assemble in the obligatory isolated farmhouse to ride out the plague of zombies.

All of our familiar friends are holed up here from the loony cops, spiteful pregnant waitress, her clueless boyfriend, misunderstood beauty queen, and badass fisherman (whose fashion taste takes after Torgo from MANOS, THE HANDS OF FATE). Our sympathies are tied to the multiple-barrel shotgun wielding fisherman Marion (Mungo McKay) and the lovely Rene (Felicity Mason). The pair carves a swath through a seemingly endless supply of reanimated corpses only to find that zombies aren't the full extent of their worries.

Comparing UNDEAD to Australia's other famous zombie film, DEAD ALIVE, is a tempting albeit simplistic temptation. It's true that both films share similarities in their use of the walking dead and barrels of fake blood but what the pair share most is their wicked sense of humour. The excessive gore, kinetic camerawork, and outlandish action mix well with the cross genre antics. Hopefully this wonderfully silly film is a sign of things to come from the Spierig brothers.

UNDEAD is slated for release by Lion's Gate Films while already on DVD in Australia.

4.0 out of 5 stars A well done zombie flick that isn't for everyone. October 12, 2005
Format:DVD
This Australian zombie import seems to be garnering a lot of love it or hate it responses on the internet.

While it is obviously a throwback to the old Evil Dead movies and Peter Jackson's early splatter horror-comedies like "Bad Taste" and "Dead Alive", Undead manages to feel like it's own movie thanks to some surprising twists in the movie that a lot of people will probably throw their hands up in disgust at.

But I found the "twist" to be very refreshing.

As a zombie film, this movie does tread some famaliar ground. Only head shots will kill them, they are just wanting to munch on some human flesh/organs and getting killed by one will eventually cause the victim to turn into one as well.

The cause of the zombie outbreak, however, is due to a meteor shower of some sort.

The characters in the film are your usual assortment of people from various backgrounds & professions, but the main character of Marion who steals the movie is a sort of backwoods Australian fisherman who just happens to handle guns like he's in a John Woo movie. (He also can do some amazing stunts and moves that leave the other character's jaws on the floor).

The gore is pretty extreme at times, though it's limited to a few isolated scenes. I would have thought that the MPAA would have butchered this film, but it appears that the film made it through uncut. You get a hand punching through a skull (with the brain in their hand), a zombie literally getting blown in half (twice), graphic head shots and numerous decapitations.

The film was made for about only 1 million Australian dollars but the filmmakers who are brothers make this look much better than a lot of major studio films with 100 million dollar budgets.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hugely Entertaining October 10, 2005
Format:DVD
This movie is hugely entertaining and the best homage to Night of the

Living Dead, Bad Taste and The Evil Dead ever made. When strange

weather phenomena occurs in a small Australian town, zombies start

appearing. A small group of people end up in a house to fight them off

but have to fight their way out as one of them needs medical attention.

The rest of the movie is spent on fighting the zombies and revealing

their origin. The gore and blood are plentiful and first rate. The

effects are mostly "real" and cgi is at a minimum. There is comedy

throughout but is more of the dry, Aussie/Brit variety so is not

overwhelming or overly stupid. It made me laugh out loud on mamy

occasions. The dialogue is pretty witty and there are many memorable

and quotable lines. There is also a nice twist towards the end of the

story and a good finish that wraps it up, while still leaving ot open

for a deserved sequel.

5.0 out of 5 stars UNDEAD IS A GREAT HORROR/ ZOMBIE/ BLACK COMEDY September 19, 2005
Format:DVD
Undead is an under rated movie out in Ausi as far as i know. I had a chance to see it and I must say,its an awesome movie (if you like the black comedy the makers added in with bloody and more bloody/brains/guts) this movie is for you!! Zombies look really cool (better than the land of the dead) and i really hate to say that but its true!! Undead is no Dawn of the dead 78 or the Dawn of the Dead remake but it does hold its own as a Zombie/Alien film and is gorry,Bloody and lots of guts falling out!! Rottentomatoes rated it kinda bad but i cant see how since its not in the U.S yet.. Look for it maybe on ebay and pick up a copy i see some people selling the ausi release and its well worth it to see...almost 5 star

4.0 out of 5 stars Zombie ate the Dingo that stole my Baby! November 30, 2005
Format:DVD
Poor Australia!

If it isn't being terrorized by post-apocalyptic cycle-punks, it's being overrun by armies of flesh-eating zombies, former loyal Australian sujects infected by spores carried by the unexpected meteor shower that kicks off the first few minutes of "Undead", the uber-low-budget gorefest by the Spierig Brothers that proves that a kind word and a sawed-off shotgun get you farther than just a kind word.

It's a gorgeous looking piece of cinema, for one: all kinds of surreal, tricky shots, some sapped of color and bled dry to a wan ocher, others filmed through a blue-filter haze that only enhances the otherworldly feel of the film.

But more to the point, there are things in "Undead" that I've never seen before---for instance, have you ever seen a movie with:

Zombified Fish? Check!

Killer meteors turning the town spinster into a growling zombie hungry for blood? Check!

Acid Rain as a nice analgesic ointment to counter nasty Zombie skin irritation? Check and check!

Blood and gore upon the floor and you without your spoon? Given the spilled viscera, split skulls, ripped-off heads, and generous splatter, I'd say check!

Look: we could talk a lot about camera-angles, and funky plot-devices involving aliens---possibly malevolent, possibly not---and the bug-eyed but dead-sexy Felicity Mason, who goes from losing her family farm to donning a gas-mask and getting proficient with a scattergun---yeah, we could talk about all that.

But the fact is, "Undead" is an unapologetic little splatter flick filmed on enough money to buy three anorexics a big breakfast at Denny's on a slow Sunday night: it's sick, it's wicked fun, and it looks astounding.

Dig in.

And I can be considered an expert at wasting time. But, this didn't even meet my low standards.
