The government respond by forming a crack Zombie Squad of soldiers to seek out and destroy the living dead, once and for all.

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.

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.

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.

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 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

This is THE worst film I have ever seen!!
Acting is crap-children in a school play act better than this!, the Zombies are clearly crap mechanical rubber props that move so slowly a Snail could sail past them! Typical B Grade Budget Film.
Even the picture is crap, and it's not full screen on your TV-think looking at a picture through a key hole-that's how much you'll see.
But don't worry, you're not missing anything!
I made the mistake of buying it, without bothering to read any reviews, what a mistake!
Glad I only paid £1.00 for it off a popular auction site-now I can't even get shot of it for 50p!!

A mad scientest produces a virus which turns humans into flesh-eating slaves. The Government fights back with its crack force, 'The Zombie Squad'. It's mission, to seek out and destroy the living dead.
This film has it all in abundance. Gushing blood, splattered brains, religious cults hell-bent on replacing humans with zombies...
Don't miss this one, it's a corker.
