I bet that when you think of Peter Jackson that the over-the-top, New Zealand zombie gorefest that is Dead Alive, which Jackson co-wrote and directed, isn’t the first thing that pops into your head. And that makes me kind of sad. Not only is this one of my all time favourites because of its excess blood and violence, but also because its somehow endearing characters and its campy undertone manage to pull this movie off in a way that makes it just plain fun to watch every time. I do think of this as a funny movie, but that could just be because I find a lot of things hilarious that I shouldn’t. Either way, I’ve never watched this one without laughing out loud, being entertained as hell from start to finish, and letting out many an “Ugh, that’s disguuuuusting!” And really, what more could anyone want from a horror flick?
