Dead Heat Review
Written by: TheMeh
Let me start this off just by saying "Treat Williams" Got that? All clear? Treat Williams kicks ass. In fact I enjoy Treat Williams characters as much as Bruce Campbell. That is saying alot. Dead Heat combines two great genres, the cop flick and the zombie flick into one great big mashy goodness of b-rated love. Is it cheesey? Hell yes!! Does the story have more holes in it then Scott's underpants (my buddy who runs horror-movies.ca) why yes it sure does!
In Dead Heat. While investigating some frightening crimes that lead a pharmaceutical company, officers Roger Mortis and his partner Doug Bigelow pay a visit to Dante Laboratories.
What they find shocks them and changes the course of their lives -- a high-tech "resurrection room" that has been churning out a weird band of recycled and indestructible criminals, and which eventually transforms Mortis into the undead!
Cue the funkfastic 80's beat tunes. I just wish at this point I had a beat box, I would have somebody follow me around so I could have a cool ass theme song to. Anyrate its a B movie, but it looks great, has some hilarious lines, and just is a really fun zombie flick in the grain of Return of the Living Dead. This movie is a must buy!
