The Dead Next Door

In Theatre : Unknown
Director(s): J.R. Bookwalter

THE DEAD NEXT DOOR is a zombie lover's dream come true! An inventive scientist has created the ultimate virus: it takes over and replaces a corpse's cells, using it as a slave to keep supplying its favorite dish...humans! When the virus goes awry, the government fights back by creating a crack team of soldiers called The Zombie Squad. Their mission: save the humans, and seek out and destroy the dead! From the streets of Washington, D.C. to the fields of Virginia and on to the suburbs of Akron, Ohio, our heroes fight a non-stop struggle for life and death, along the way stumbling onto an insane religious cult bent on keeping the dead alive and well until the day comes for their ultimate mission...to replace the living as the Earth's inhabitants! It's non-stop terror and violence when your neighbors become...THE DEAD NEXT DOOR!!


Though uncredited, cult director Sam Raimi (THE EVIL DEAD, DARKMAN) financed this effort by first-time director J.R. Bookwalter. It was initially to be shot on video for $8,000 in 1985, but the production wound up being shot on Super-8mm film over the summer of 1986 for a record-breaking budget of $125,000. The production lagged on until February, 1989 when Raimi enlisted cohort Bruce Campbell ("Ash" from the EVIL DEAD movies) to oversee the post sound in Los Angeles. The movie was first released in 1990 by Electro Video where it began to garner a cult reputation. In 1992, Electro folded and Bookwalter reclaimed the movie for release on his Tempe Video label

There's always this feeling I get when I watch a very low budget movie. Sort of a sense of connection of gratitude to the film. Since I am in the same position, trying to raise money for a LTZBFM movie (Less Than Zero Bu...
