Zombie horror feature. A virus is taking over corpses and re-animating them to provide itself with more human food. The government respond by forming a crack Zombie Squad of soldiers to seek out and destroy the living dead, once and for all. They also have to cope with an insane religious cult, who intend to replace the living with the animated dead.

A blood drenched masterpiece to the low budget splatter gore genre. Crawling through the rotten entrails of George Romeros previous masterpieces, The Dead Next Door plays homeage to Savin's indesputable talent to melt your eyeballs away with a barrage of imaginative and stomach distubingly well executed gore. For all you splatter fans out there, this is one to own.

Great microbudget tribute to Romero's Dawn of the Dead. If you like Troma movies it's like one of those but without the sleaze. Plenty of splatter and gore of the type you'd expect in movies like this. But don't expect realistic effects or great acting.

I truly wanted to love this movie in a big way. I knew Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell were involved. I knew that it was hailed as a cult classic. But I did not know that while overall a good time, the movie has long stretches of DULL. I guess director JR Bookwalter, who shows great talent actually, couldn't pace the movie too well, and when I say that I mean that the pacing was either to fast or way too dull. The best thing about the film though were the awesome gore effects, from melting zombies to decapitated heads eating a finger and lots of blood and guts. The effects were truly what elevated this film to a higher level of entertainment.

The plot was about a scientist who has developed the ultimate virus, one that reanimates the dead and drives them on an undying quest for human flesh. Zombie among humans, living in peace... I don't think so. But there is a cool scene of human protestors (those fighting for Zombie Rights) being attacked by the zombies. The government is forced to organize a crack team of soldiers called "The Zombie Squad" charged with seeking out a cure for the virus and eliminating all the undead. The team is sent out on a mission into Akron, Ohio, where the virus originated, in search of the lost notes of the doctor who created it. They also encounter a religious cult and their leader (some weirdo wearing sunglasses), who want to kill them.

In spite of its meager budget the film managed to be very interesting. There's a lot of cool little ideas thrown here and there that I had not seen on any other zombie flick. For example before Land of the Dead ever came up with their own little zombie killing squad, this movie had already thought it up. I loved the idea of that.

well this caught be by surprise.this is one of the best c zombie horrors ever.yes c not b.why?awful camera work/bad acting/bad make up effects/a budget of about £100.the main actor played by peter ferry is actually dubbed by evil deads bruce campbell.and thats not surprising when him and sam raimi put money in to the production of the film.but putting that all aside.first time writer and director j.r.bookwalter does a decent job with his weird camera angles and adding the names.raimi/king/romero/savini in to the screenplay is genius.its very watchable because its so bad.there are some very funny moments and the film is very gory even if the special make up effects are so bad.there are 2 versions of this film.the cryptkeeper version is uncut but suffers from poor pic/sound quality but does have some very good extras.the anchor bay version has better pic/sound quality and even though its uncut it has been edited in places probaly for pace and the end music score has been changed.i absolutely love this film my advice watch it and enjoy zombie film making at its worst.

I love Cheaply made horror and Zombie movies , but this film didnt make enough sence , i know its all obviously fictional but the lack of good idea's put into the way people are killed in the story are pore and not very well thought up , why would you laze against a table with a zombie semi-strapped to it (trust me they knew the zombie was there).
loads of blood, loads of gore . the look of the zombies and the gore factor made me give this movie the 3 stars not the story or the acting they where both pore at best .if you like cheap budget horror with loads of blood and gore this is a good one time movie .
shame because money or effort where not needed to make this better . just a little common sence during filming.
3 stars from me

Format: DVD
The story's skin and bones, the acting is terrible, and the whole thing is shot with a Super-8mm camera but, bless young J.R. Bookwalter's dark little heart, there's blood and gore at every turn of this low-budget zombie film from 1989 (newly remastered in 2005). The Dead Next Door really was Bookwalter's brainchild, as he wrote, directed, and appeared in the film - all at the tender age of nineteen. Of course, this movie would never have been made without the help of Sam Raimi, who helped finance the project and, under the pseudonym "The Master Cylinder," produced it. The Raimi factor is rather obvious - e.g., you have characters named Raimi, Savini (after Tom Savini), and Carpenter (after John Carpenter); you have some characters watching Evil Dead on television at one point, and you have Bruce Campbell dubbing for a couple of characters.

This time around, the zombie menace originates in Akron, Ohio. A Dr. Bow (Lester Clark) was trying to bring dead tissue back to life or something, but he sort of goofed up, producing a virus that takes control of dead bodies and sends them out to collect further human flesh for the virus' consumption. A few years later, zombies are running amuck all over the country. The newly created Zombie Squad does its best to protect citizens from these cannibalistic undead killers (despite a group of vocal liberals who want to protect zombie rights, apparently believing they can reason with these undead brutes just by sitting down with them over a cup of tea), but the fact that the whole force seemingly consists of less than a dozen people is sort of a handicap.
