UNDEAD: THE LATEST ZOMBIE TRIUMPH?
Creature-Corner had a chance to watch the new aussie zombie flick, Undead and blew us away by giving it 4 1/2 stars! Check out some samples from the review........
'..... swear to you, I've only just described the first, say, half hour of the movie. To go any further into it would spoil many surprises and moments of 'huh?' (in a good way) that follow in the last hour and a half. It sucks that I can't really go too much farther into the plot for 'Undead' without dumping spoilers on you, because it's one of the coolest and more original concepts I've witnessed in a very long time.'
'Instead I will focus on the strong suits outside of the plot. The first one that should grab any viewer that knows anything about the movie (i.e. that it's an indie feature) is the amazing use of CGI. Not on a big George Lucas scale, but simply as an enhancement for what's already happening on screen and making it that much cooler. But these two brothers know what they're doing when it comes to not just CGI effects but straight-up old fashioned gore, of which there is plenty. At times a great throwback to the early days of Peter Jackson (ala 'Dead Alive', of course) and even some cool homages to Romero, I really hope we get to see more messy horror form these guys.'
