Dead Alive Review

Before he discovered Kate Winslet in Heavenly Creatures, Peter Jackson's work looked more like it came from Troma. Dead Alive (aka Braindead) is the often-remade story of unslayable zombies, though Balme has a field day with them during the infamous half-hour scene which involves several dozen walking corpses, hundreds of gallons of red-tinted maple syrup (aka blood), and a lawn mower.

Use your imagination.
