The Zombie Dead (dvd)
Awful dubbed dialogue! Terrible acting! Unconvincing zombies! Rubbish toupees! Incest! It's all here and more in The Zombie Dead, a frankly terrible film that manages to be strangely entertaining.
I have no idea what the plot was, or if there was one. It opens with a professor investigating...something. He goes into a crypt, hammers at the wall and then attempts to make friends with a couple of shuffling corpses. This doesn't go quite according to plan. Then a bunch of friends turn up at the professor's house (I think they might have been swingers) for a weekend of...something. This mainly involves wandering around the grounds, snogging, and some of the worst dialogue/dubbing in film history. It's not long before the zombies make an appearance which is then a cue for lots of running, falling over, and some more running before the zombies act as a team (yep, you heard me) to break into the mansion.
It's complete bone of the highest order but is worth watching if only for some decent gore and a dwarf in a rubbish wig who wants more than comfort from his mum. Watch it now before, well, you think of something better to spend your money on.
