I wasn't aware this was an early Peter Jackson film and am surprised to have learnt that to be honest, but guess you gotta start somewhere!
The film certainly rubs shoulders with 'Braindead', being both dysfunctional and comically gory (although the blood and entrails quieten down as the movie goes on). Zombie fans will enjoy picking out various sight gags and bits of speech taken from other zombie films "they're not zombies, don't call them that!" and newcomers to the genre will delight in the outrageous death scenes of the undead. It's no 'Braindead' being neither quite as funny or intense, and the plot does drag at times towards the end, but it is certainly a reasonable alternative for fans of Peter Jackson's early work and for virgin zombie viewers the first half an hour will help desensitise you for your exploration into the genre. And the elderly lady taken out by a meteorite early on will make you split your sides with laughter. Every. Single. Time...
The absolute worst thing about this film - and I could (and probably will) write about this forever - is its godawful comedy score, which sounds like it's been pryed from an old silent movie and lovelessly, haphazardly splattered over the film's soundtrack, plundering the film of any technical merit it might have had.
Fair enough, zombies aren't the most serious of subject matter, but some tension in the music or editing would have helped me stay interested. Imagine watching Braindead (which is excellent, buy that instead), cut together by college students, with the Benny Hill theme looped over the dialogue for the whole 90 minutes and you're somewhere near the experience of Undead. Only with far less interesting deaths, no good dialogue and human characters that are less developed than the zombies. Followed up by a pretentious twist that only serves to make the entire film a bit more pointless.
On the good side, the gore is suitably over the top, and there are some decent moments of improvised weaponry, but it's all very superficial and I came out of the film feeling like I needed to watch some proper zombie films to cleanse myself.
1 star seems harsh, but I really just did not enjoy this film, and I can't recommend it - it is a waste of time as far as I'm concerned. Instead, I'd say save your money and buy the excellent Braindead, Shaun of the Dead and Versus. All three are similar in various ways but infinitely better.
