  1. João R's rating of the film Dead Alive

    Essentially, a bloody mess. It manages to stand out for elements other than the horror and gore; mainly, for the subversion of the drama and romance genre and for the exploration of the inability of a mother to consent that her child's love passes from her to another woman. Nonetheless, I didn't enjoy its humor.

  2. Nick Schwab's rating of the film Dead Alive

    It may be a horror-comedy splatter movie, but it's also a crazy bastard of the romantic melodrama genre. On its peripheral, it's a romance of a man falling in love, and getting out of the overbearing rule of his mother. That's why it's better than the Evil Dead films: Jackson imprints his stylish, comicbook horror with something that isn't necessarily more complex, but isn't just strictly pure gory laughs.

  3. Lana's rating of the film Dead Alive

  4. That Geek With The Clip-Ons's rating of the film Dead Alive

    One of the greatest splatter films ever, and one of the best horror comedies ever! Crazy to think that the director of this movie would go on to make Lord of the Rings and win a shit ton of awards.

  5. Paul Mallinson's rating of the film Dead Alive

    "Dead Alive" my ar*e! It's called bloody Braindead! And is quite brilliant.

  6. c@rley's rating of the film Dead Alive

  7. Jon B's rating of the film Dead Alive

    Overdoes it, but that's not enough.

  8. subtonal's rating of the film Dead Alive

  9. Gonçalo Rosas's rating of the film Dead Alive

    8 - I can take or leave most of Jackson's latter output (the major exception to this being "The Two Towers"), but seeing him work his magic on something he loves and arguably does better than anyone else, as is the case with "Dead Alive", is an absolutely nauseating delight.

  10. BernardoDiniz's rating of the film Dead Alive

  11. James Mackin's rating of the film Dead Alive

    The most fun gorefest I've ever experienced.

  12. Kelvin Thompson's rating of the film Dead Alive

    2-3. A hugely grotesque, comically inventive zombie spectacle. A wild, worthwhile ride if you're into that sort of thing.

  13. calamidades's rating of the film Dead Alive

    me sorprende que peter jackson haya pasado de esta masterpiece al señor de los anillos. smh vendido

  14. Adam Whybray's rating of the film Dead Alive

    The first two thirds gloriously set up the last third at which point we get a carnival of blood and flesh from the bowels of the basement up to the final confrontation on the roof of the house. Ludicrously inventive - it just doesn't let up in its jokes or jaw-droppingly icky prosthetics. Funny that a film with so much corn syrup viscera should be so sweet tender-hearted. Goofy and wild and perfect. Lovelovelove.

  16. Lutka's rating of the film Dead Alive

  17. Karen Callora's rating of the film Dead Alive

  18. JackButcher's rating of the film Dead Alive

    Almost slapstick in parts, even the dialogue. Very entertaining.

  19. Sin título.'s rating of the film Dead Alive

    Castración maternal extrema que no cesa hasta encontrar la unión biológica primaria entre un hijo y su madre, todo, perfectamente aderezado con comedia física y ríos de sangre con vísceras.

  20. ricardo ssj's rating of the film Dead Alive

  21. sebekk's rating of the film Dead Alive

    People in the 50s really knew how to party

  22. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film Dead Alive

    Peter Jackson nunca debió de vender su alma al Señor de los Anillos. Este filme es un gran ejemplo de un cine excéntricamente gore. Su trama tan dócil y ridícula felizmente no es tan mala ni absurda como su "Bad taste", sin embargo sus personajes siguen siendo seres grotescos. La mutilación aquí es ingeniosa. Para cuando la historia comenzaba a aburrir, sus engendros tomaron una fiesta y crearon una genial secuencia.

    Hard to believe it's from Peter Jackson!
