5.0 out of 5 stars Lord of the Gore..!, 29 Mar. 2005
This review is from: Braindead [DVD] [1993] (DVD)
Watch this movie and you will know why Peter Jackson deserves to be called one of the best directors of all time.
The film is original, very very funny, and very very gory from start to finish! Trust me on this.
Every character is funny. There is dialogue you will never forget. And there are gory scenes you will remember forever!
I'd hate to spoil the film for you by revealing what happens but will tell you that Lionel's mum gets bitten by a Rat Monkey and all hell breaks loose.
Top marks to Peter and crew for giving us a right laugh and a right scare and I hope one day we'll have a Braindead Special Edition on DVD as well as a sequel to an amazingly funny, original, horror flick.

5.0 out of 5 stars Day of the Dead, 8 Dec. 2004
This review is from: Day Of The Dead [DVD] [1986] (DVD)
What a film!!!!! The first scene where we get the first taste of the claustrophobic atmosphere that surrounds the film is brilliant. The scene makes you jump out of your seat and you know you're in for a movie that'll be full of surprises.
The film has plenty of clever dialogue and, of course, plenty of gore (thanks to the brilliant special effects and the make-up skills of Tom Savini) . It might not be as long or have as many gore scenes compared to the classic Dawn of the Dead but is still enjoyable and terrifying at the same time.
There is dialogue that will make you laugh or get you thinking philosophically and dialogue that will keep you guessing as to what might happen to the survivors in the film. The characters are cleverly drawn together and the zombies are scary looking, bar a few who look like they having a day out in the studio!
You'll be reaching for the sick bag when you see the gory scenes like the one where one of the characters gets his "chest-flesh" bitten off by a zombie; the flesh, as it is bitten off, looks like the stretchy cheese you see on a pizza that hangs on the side of your mouth! You'll see plenty of body parts torn apart and eaten and plenty of zombies that look like they seriously need to see their dentist, as well as their dermatologist!
Romero keeps you guessing as to who are the real bad guys (only one woman not a zombie in the film and she's a goodie!) and you only find out in the last few scenes.
If you've seen the previous two Dead films and not Day then you'll love this film (If your're a real fan you'll realise that the actor who plays the Army Boss is the guy who was in Dawn of the Dead as one of the "cops" that escapes in a boat before the main characters fly off in the helicoptor)
Top marks for everything then to Romero for this third installment of the Dead Trilogy.
Buy the film! It's a true classic!
