group of low budget filmmakers have set up shop in an
abandon hospital with hopes of making a zombie flick. Lifelong fans,
director David Poe (Eric Clawson) and his bumbling special effects
sidekick Paul (Brett Beardslee) are living the dream of a lifetime when
they stumble upon a real dead body. Although a bit spooked at first,
the crew decides that their newest addition would be perfect for the
film. Little do they know that filmmakers shouldn't play with dead
When they accidentally
resurrect the corpse (Matt Stephen), they unexpectedly open the
doorway to death. Spewing out from the darkness, Eibon
unleashes his army of the dead on the land of the living. The blood
flows freely as the cast and crew falls prey to
this undead legion and no one is spared from Eibon's thirst for
revenge. The few remaining survivors realize that they must close
this gate, before it is too late.
has been a longtime since Full Moon Pictures has made a decent film. Over
the last few years, the quality of their product has fallen immensely.
I remember doing a review of "The
Puppet Master" a little over a year ago just as Full Moon was
final gearing up for a big year of horror film making. I was kind of
psyched because I have always been a fan of Full Moon's (i.e. "Subspieces",
"Trancers", and "The
Puppet Master"), but as the year progressed it seems like
they had lost their touch. Well, that may have all finally
changed with "The Dead Hate The Living" directed
by longtime fan and first time feature director, Dave Parker. The
story, effects, soundtrack, and style are all reminiscent of Fulci's
vision. Hardcore fans will just eat up all the references to their
favorite horror films and director and with zombie flicks few and
far between, this is definitely one of the better in recent memory.
Even a bullet to the head couldn't stop this rip-roaring zombie-fest. Rent
this film immediately !!!!!!
