1992 / d. Peter Jackson
There’s something you should know about DEAD ALIVE: in all likelihood, you’ll never see a gorier film for the rest of your life. Peter Jackson’s splatter-comedy classic lives up to the hype in every way imagineable. You’ll laugh. You’ll cringe. You’ll be blown away. There’s enough gratuitous graphic grue to gross-out gorehounds: litres of thick, chunky intestinal muck strewn everywhere; a lawnmower massacre; festering pus-filled boils bursting at high velocity; organ removals; skeleton removals; skin removals; oh my! Better in many ways than Jackson’s other over-the-top cult classic: BAD TASTE. Put this one on your movie-menu, and your guests are sure to leave satisfied!
