3.0 out of 5 stars Not Scary But a Fun Zombie Flick, August 31, 2001
This review is from: The Dead Hate the Living [VHS] (VHS Tape)
If you are a horror movie buff you'll enjoy this, as they're are clever references to Fulci and other classic gore films. The interviews at the end of the movie pretty much say it all...they(director, writer, etc.) are horror fans and wanted to do a movie that was reminiscent of the old Italian masterpieces. The plot is better than average (at least it tries to be creative) as it goes that a group of students are trying to film a horror movie in an abandoned hospital but end of opening a portal to an alternate world of the dead though, as they soon discover, they did more than just open the doorway. As expected, the rest of the movie is the film students trying to escape a gory death. The actors themselves are amusing and give the film a corny, evil dead type feel. Had they tried to be serious... the film just wouldn't have worked. Storyline and characters have been covered and now for the all important factor: gore. The opening sequence is a mixture of gore and eroticism (little bit of undead love) that starts the flick off on the creative right foot. I'd explain it but that would take away from your experience if you ever choose to watch this movie. After that things build up for some time and then, once they open the doorway, there is some more zombie action. A good scene that comes to mind is when one of the students gets a zombie arm punched through his stomach and then his limp corpse is dragged down the hall by his intestines. Quite colorful! Overall the movie, though possessing some plot holes and the occassional bad effect, is one of the better zombie efforts to come out in recent years. Definitely worth your time if you enjoy this genre.
