The Dead Next Door Review
Written by: Norrock The Zombie Eater
So when the dead come to kock on your door be sure you let them in, Cause you will not be let down at all with the gory treats they have in store for you. Yes! finely a zombie flick thats all about the zombies and gore, "The Dead Next Door" is a gorehound's wet dream come true, It is a film made by zombie fans for zombie fans, And it focuses only on one thing to take you on one hell of a gory ride and it don't hold back on anything along the way. Despite the film's low budgetness this is a one of a kind anarchy zombie flick that realy does live up to its name, And its sure to please the hell out of any hard core zombie fans. Now as i like to say on to the basics. The Acting *Much like the movie itself* does not try to take itself serious at times its even laghable, This is the kinda zombie flick that when you watch it you will not care who plays who and how well they act, Its all about the zombies munching down man! the kool shit dig what im saying?.
Now the FX are truely asskicking to be comeing from such a low budget film, The zombies remind me much of the ones in "Dawn of the Dead" & "Day of the Dead", And as for the gore wow! we get to see a head being riped in two, A toung being pulled out, Legs and arms being removed from the body, Fingers chewed off, Guts being slurped down by zombies that make funny noises, This movie is just jam packed with so much gore it is hard to name everything, As much as i hate to say this i think the gore level in "The Dead next Door" tops the kickass stuff in "Day of the Dead".
Now whith that being said im going to talk about one of the main things that concerns most folks when it comes to a low budget horror flick, And that would be the cinematography (how the film itself looked) Truth is right now i can think of about 30 low budget horror flicks that looked 10 times worse then this one did, "The Dead next Door" looks very super- 8ish, The film quality reminds me alot of "Evil Dead" Last but least the story, And much like how the Acting went the Story does not try to take itself serious, But still manages to hold itself together. "The Dead next Door" is about... A world gone bad (Over run by zombies) Humans strive to survive as the living dead eat them off one by one.
The government sends out a group of soldiers called The Zombie Squad. Their mission is to hunt down the living dead and save what human lives there is left to save. The Story is a simple one with plenty of twists and plot holes, But mostly its just a quickly sewed hand bag meant to dish out a shitload of gore. Over all i give "The Dead next Door" a 10. For any that must know "The Dead next Door" is Unrated for (Some language/ Strong Zombie Violence/ Gore/ Gore/ & More Gore!). So don't forget when the dead wants to get out your door don't let them out, Keep em traped inside your tv. Till Next Time RIP...
