The 100




Braindead

Rating: 10 Beans

isgustingly awful... I enjoyed it no end.

The version I saw was the unrated director's cut, and according to the maniac I saw it with, this version is much better than the R-rated one.

Anyway, the plot of this mess goes something like this...

A couple of explorers find a creature that looks like a plastic Halloween rat that's been buried in a septic tank. Being the brilliant scientists they are, they decide to bring the disgusting little beggar home, although not before at least one of them gets rather unpleasantly killed. Now why they don't just cut their losses and squash the little Zombie-maker right there, I cannot imagine.

One way or another, despite being horrendously dangerous and killing people the "rat-monkey" ends up in a petting zoo, presumably in New Zealand where the movie was filmed. Also living presumably in New Zealand are our hero Lionel(Timothy Balme), his would-be girlfriend Paquita(Diana Penalver) and Lionel's mother from Hell(Elizabeth Moody). Is there anyone who can't guess which one of these three is zombie-bait?

Once Mom gets hers, the fun begins in earnest. Poor old Lionel can't kill Zombie-mom 'cause she's, well, his Mom. Instead he has the relatives over for dinner and they enjoy a pleasant meal despite body parts and puss dripping into the food. Mom also eats Paquita's dog whole. Ick.

If one zombie is good then about a zillion of 'em are even better and they do multiply rather rapidly. Soon Mom's nurse is batting her Zombie eyes at the Zombie priest (his best line:"I kick ass for the Lord") and next thing you know there's a Zombie baby. Lionel is left to care for the undead crew which he keeps locked in his basement. Of course we all know that won't last...

All it takes is one wild little house party to create Zombie central. The exciting denoument involves fire, a lawnmower, and a set of intestines that appears to have become detached from its owner and decided to go on a rampage. I'd describe it, but the english language has yet to develop strong enough expletives for it.

Sick, disgusting, god-awful and highly reccomended. It deserves ten beans, but trust me, this thing is so bad it feels good.
