Presently, back in New Zealand’s Wellington, the oppressed Lionel Cosgrove who lives with his despotic mother Vera, has finally found his soulmate, Paquita, but sadly, his world will rapidly change when after a stroll at the local Zoo, a live specimen of the rare species will bite Vera. Now that she’s got the “bite”, with the infection spreading and turning Vera into a festering, puss-squirting living dead ravenous for flesh, things are bound to get out of hand, as an ever-growing collection of stiffs and other stimulant-enhanced zombie misfits detained in Lionel’s house basement will demand immediate action. Poor Lionel he needs to step up and clear up the mess, but above all, summon the courage to confront his decomposing mummy and the family’s ugly secret. Will he save the day?
Plot: When a Sumatran rat-monkey bites Lionel Cosgrove’s mother, she’s transformed into a zombie and begins killing (and transforming) the entire town while Lionel races to keep things under control.

Perhaps the best horror comedy of all time
Peter Jackson’s gore-fest “Dead Alive” – AKA Braindead- is a very funny, very bloody film. The story is pretty simple, but includes some ingenious plot elements – such as a budding romance between two very likable characters (Balme and Penalver), a psychologically distressing relationship between Balme and his mother and well scripted dialog.
Balme plays Lionel – a troubled, more or less housebound young man who has been forced to spend most of his time taking care of a domineering and psychologically damaging elderly mother. Penalver plays Paquita – his romantic destiny. Paquita is a charming young woman for whom English is (perhaps) a second language. Soon after they meet, Paquita notices some odd quirks in Lionel’s behavior, and slowly begins to realize that there is something besides the usual male fear of commitment. Perhaps Lionel’s cannibalistic zombie mother is to blame? Soon enough Balme is babysitting a whole family of living dead who he has to constantly inject with animal tranquilizers, and trying to fend off a despicable uncle who is trying to muscle in on his inheritance. Then the fun really starts. It’s the Dead Alive Series with extra gore, infused with brilliant slapstick and just a pinch of Monty Python.
Balme is amazing! – an excellent physical actor with great slapstick pacing and manic anxiety. And Penalver is delightfully pretty and sincere yet gives a nice campy performance. Dead Alive is one of the films in which Jackson began to blend detailed ecstatic and fantastic elements into his plots and cinematography – later culminating in the disturbing Heavenly Creatures and the spectacular LOTR trilogy. In Dead Alive, he finds his formula and makes it work without a tremendous budget. The film is well shot and grotesque, but remarkably amusing.
I kick ass, for the Lord!
Once in a life time there comes a movie that combines two opposite genres together to make a seamless whole of a movie. Dead Alive is that movie. Perfectly combining splatter horror, and comedy this movie is sure to make you laugh and vomit at the same time.
The premise is simple, an awkward young man’s mom is bitten by a Rat Monkey that leads to her becoming a zombie. Eventually she gets out and begins to spread the disease around the neighborhood. Basically you classic zombie movie. But this has a completely different feel to it. For one I couldn’t stop laughing, whether is was the zombie baby or the heart and lungs monster, this movie made me laugh. But at the same time I completely lost my appetite. From watching a man get his legs eaten off, or a woman eat her own ear. It really takes a certain kind of person to understand the humor in this movie.
I give this movie ten out of ten, not just for the humor and story but for the practical effects. They were absolutely amazing. A few like the monkey or the baby don’t really hold up to today’s standards, but when the guy gets his legs eaten away leaving just his bones, that was unbelievable. It looked so realistic. The characters were another way that made this movie great. I really enjoyed the characters, they were all people that really acted like someone would in that type of situation making it believable.
I wouldn’t recommend this movie to just any movie watcher. It takes a special type of person to enjoy this movie to it’s full potential. But if you love movies like Shaun of the Dead or Zombieland I suggest you check this movie out. But do it on an empty stomach, I cannot stress how bloody and gory this movie is.
