Fantastic old school zombie flick,
This review is from: The Dead [DVD] (DVD)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The Dead is the best zombie horror I have seen for ages! Sure, 'The Horde' and 'survival of the dead' were good offerings, but this film wipes the floor with them!
Based in a war-torn African country, a sole survivor of an American Air Force evacuation flight must try and stay alive. With the help of a local army officer who is looking for his son, they travel through the inhospitable landscape and fight off the never ending horde of zombies roaming the land.
The zombies are old fashioned 'Night of the living dead' and 'Dawn of the dead' style with their slow walking relentless pursuit. There is a real sense of tension to the film and genuine scares, even for those seasoned horror buffs, and of course lots of gore!
The special features are fantastic. There is a extremely well informed and interesting commentary from the 2 brother directors, a thorough and comprehensive 'making of' (detailing what an awful time was had trying to make it!)' interviews from cast and crew and a deleted scene.
If you are a horror fan then you will love this film, if you are a zombie horror fan - BUY THIS FILM NOW!!!!!!!!
