After his Mother gets infected by a bite from a deadly Sumatran Rat Monkey, Lionel has to contend with a plague of the living dead while attempting to woo the love of his life, Paquita. Peter Jackson had already been tagged with the nom de guerre, ‘The Sultan of Splatter’ by fans of his first two pictures; but in this deliriously liquid romp, he takes a Flymo to fusty 1950s New Zealand and takes cinematic gore to a whole new extreme in the process. –NZ On Screen
