Braindead (1992) Synopsis:

An old bachelor has his mum bitten by a strange rat, causing her to dye and later, to her son astonishment, to come back to life.

Braindead (1992) Review:

If I was to run a contest of the funniest horror flicks I ever saw. Dead Alive would be competing with Shawn of the Dead, Army of Darkness and Troll Hunter as the very best one. This basically to say that it is absolutely hilarious!

It is very gory, very funny. All the scenes in this movie are really exaggerated and many grotesque moments should make you laugh your head off. There are a lot of cults scenes, the most famous being probably the famous land mower one! The actors overacting just fit perfectly with the movie bizarre ambiance. My personal favorite is the innocent (stupid) girl Pakita! The character of the crazy mum is also fantastic, especially when she transforms into a disgusting monster at the end.


This movie is the one that really started the career of Peter Jackson. It is a wonderful comedy that hasn’t aged and such a classic that they should show it at primary schools!
