Undead (2003) Proves Unbearable

As I sat down to watch ‘Undead,’ I was at least looking forward to enjoying a bit of earthy Aussie humour, while secretly hoping that this zombie flick might turn out to be a classic like Braindead (1992). Unfortunately, Peter Jackson the Spierig brothers are not!

Things started out well enough as the rustic town of Berkeley is hit by a hail of meteorites, which subsequently unleash a plague of the walking dead on the hapless town folk. I even continued watching as a handful of survivors struggled to stay alive in the midst of all the calamitous mayhem, until a half  hour into the story when Undead succeeded in sapping the very last vestige of interest from my now pauperized body.

This was supposed to be a comedy horror but the painful acting in this movie went way beyond a joke. I then found myself groaning like a zombie who’d just been struck on the head by some cheap Aussie boomerang before finally pulling the plug on this Antipodean misadventure.

I only decided to watch ‘Undead’ after reading a few positive reviews on this so-called hidden gem of a movie but, unfortunately, Undead proved UNwatchable and doesn’t even make it onto the ‘it’s so bad its good’ list.

VERDICT

Sucks your brain out through your nose and stamps on it

    Definitely a B-horror film, but still alright with some funny one liners..Overall, UNDEAD is a pretty poor zombie movie, though.

    Really!! I thought Undead was an enjoyable horror comedy with occasional flashes of brilliance. Rent it and prepare for a roller-coaster of a ride.

      I didn’t really get into it. I was just kind of meh about it all. Poor zomebis, the most overused genre of film ever. For every good flick there’s probably ten bad ones.

    Tedious, tiresome and basically a load of old tripe.
