Dead Alive(Review)(Splattery September #5)[Terrifying Theatrical Tuesday]
So we end my fun little segment with the most splatastic film of all...Dead Alive aka Braindead. Where do I even begin with this one?
I guess I'll start with the premise. The movie is about doomed star crossed lovers Leonard and Paquita as they contend with his overbearing mother. She gets bit by a rare Sumatran Rat-Monkey that infects her when following them on a date in the zoo, and soon they must face down a zombie hoard as chaos ensues. And oh boy does chaos ensues.
Make no bones about it..this is a balls to the wall bloody and insane movie. There are so many scenes that I could point out. Let's see, there is the pudding scene. The cemetery scene with the priest that knows kung fu..."I kick ass for the Lord!!" The zombie baby sequences. And it culminates to the most disgusting vomit-inducing most bloody finale I ever seen in a horror film.
Oh, just to give a preview of the insanity of the movie, here is the aforementioned cemetery scene:
This is a film I admit I have to prepare myself to watch, but damn it is a fun film to see once you get into it. I will warn you...if you don't like the sight of blood or any other bodily fluids...if you have a weak stomach...proceed with caution. Or at least have a barf bag at the ready. I'm not just saying this either. If you have seen Dead Alive already, feel free to leave your thoughts below.
So that wraps up Splattery September..I quite enjoyed this...I might bring it back in the future. Next month...we move on to my favorite time of year, Halloween, and once again that will be my theme for October!
Till next time, stay safe and stay scared!! -Tha Thrilla-
