I bought The Dead Next door because I love zombie movies. Dawn of the Dead is my favorite horror film of all times and I like to hunt down other rare zombie films. If you thought Night of the Living Dead was a low budget film, wait till you get a load of The Dead Next Door. This is perhaps the most low budget film I have ever seen, yet it impressed me. I first watched it with a group of my friends, and we had a great time. The credits to the film are real cheesy, but if you can get through that, the film turns out pretty good. The story has enough plot for ten zombie films and the gore F/X are excellent for it's budget. The picture quality is a let down, but you can get past that by image controls on your television. The acting is so horrendous that it made all my friends laugh their heads off, adding to the fun of the film. Overall, it is absolutly amazing what 19 year old director J.R. Bookwalter was able to accomplish with a shoe string budget. Any zombie fan should hunt this rare title down.

This is what you expect from a guy that once worked with George A Romero on Dawn of the Dead, who then goes out and hires a film crew and cast to work on a zombie film he wrote, but they have absolutely not budget and noone gets paid until after the films release. True story, everyone that worked on this film did so on the premise that it would make a profit, how it could it not being shot on super 8 with unknown actors whose characters names parodied known horror icons. It actually turned out to be a truly good effort that has become a silent underground cult classic especially among b movie and romero zombie fans. I especially enjoy the religous who believe the zombie are their servants sent by god to bring punishment and cleansing etc. I find it funny romero used a similar less religious situation in his survival of the dead about 2 decades later. If you are someone who loves to watch bad movies or loves zombie movies, this is worht a look

The Dead Next Door actually came out much as a run-of-the-mill horror movie would & if I would have completely finished watching it, it may have been better, but I doubt it. I'm a sucker when I see a horror movie with a good write up on the cover.

So what do you do if you have about a $10 budget, a few cheap 8mm cameras, and a ton of determination to make a real horror film that can actually pass as a real movie? You do what these folks from Akron Ohio did. First let me say this film is very, very low budget. In fact it's probably the lowest budget movie I have ever seen. Yes the acting is absolutely awful, the script is even worse, the editing sucks too. So you can't judge a film like this on how good it is compared to other real films, because of the reality that there was barely any budget for this movie and no one who worked on it knew what the hell they were doing. They just did it because they had a driving passion to pull it off and believed in what they were doing. For that reason this film has some real merit. But I can't judge it compared to any other films or in the usual ways. Based on that I must say some things about this production really impressed me, particularly much of the camera work which was surprisingly good considering the limitations. Great tracking shots, some excellent pullbacks, and very imaginative angles. Also they did a good job with the lighting during sequences that took place at night. And the gore was amazing considering the next to nothing budget. Sometimes the gore was very well done. Probably the weakest link in the entire film was the acting by the doctor in the baseball hat. I mean the guy was seriously terrible. None of the actors could act worth a damned except Reverend Jones during the sermon scene. His acting was pretty good there for someone who wasn't an actor. But all in all this film is terribly weak compared to almost any real movie. But considering that this film was extremely low budget and shot in 8mm by complete novis's, it's also an amazing accomplishment.

I love this movie such a great low-budget zombie flick. Basically zombies have taken over and there are police out there called the Zombie Squad to take them out. Everything about this movie is bad but I love it. I remember going to my local video store every friday night with my friend to rent this and some other horror movie and order some pizza and watch them. Maybe that's why I like it so much because I have memories with it but I think it holds up quite well and a wonderfully cheesey zombie film that every horror fan needs to see and add to their collections while they still can. I've been hearing that this is going out of print soon so I would suggest picking it up while it's very cheap and before the price sky rockets.

I tried to like this film, I watched it twice and no luck.
It's about a group call "The Zombie Squad" killing of zombies and helping the scientist with a cure. They also come
along a religious group that want's to keep the zombies alive...so they have to fight them as well.
The action is clumsy, the characters make dumb decisions, the acting is pretty bad, but the gore and story
is well executed. I know it's low budget but it seems as if it could of been so much more. I've seen
many low budget zombie films that are better like "The Dead Pit" and "The Video Dead".
I guess it's worth a watch to the hardcore fans.
