Hell of the Living Dead

Yet another rip off of George A. Romero's DAWN OF THE DEAD this 1980 Italian offering sure delivers the gore but is mighty brothy in the other departments. Famed horror director Bruno Mattei who sadly passed away just a little over a week ago due to a brain tumor, throws everything but the kitchen sink in to this baby. I'd go in to the plot details but their honestly don;t seem to be any though there is a lot of nice National Geographic stock footage of dancing natives though for the life of me I've yet to figure out why. Does it matter? Hell friggin' no it don't! This is a zombie film and as we all know it's all about the finger chompin' and there be plenty o' that action here. I must say it's a good damn thing the zombies are in make-up as you'd never be able to tell them apart from the main cast who give performances so wooden they could build a new ark! Credos as always go to GOBLIN who provide yet another fine score for this bit of splatter mayhem.
