|On a quiet street, in a small town, pure evil has come to stay. An innocent young man forced to care for his domineering mother finds the task a whole lot more demanding after she's bitten by the cursed sumatran rat-monkey.|
Editor's NotePeter Jackson, master of subversive comedy, presents the story of a hapless young man whose overbearing mother gets him into a heap of trouble when she catches a bizarre zombie virus and starts turning innocent passersby into walking corpses. This grandiose splatterfest features loads of unforgettable, stomach-turning effects. Highlights include a ghoulish, bloodthirsty baby, zombie mutilation, progressive putrefaction, and an off-the-wall undead mating scene. Sick, twisted, and hilarious, DEAD ALIVE is unlike anything you have ever seen before--and is definitely not for the squeamish.

Customer Reviews of Dead Alive
THE MOST INCREDIBLE PIECE OF FILM CREATED. YOU AND YOURS WILL ENJOY THIS FILM OVER AND OVER!!!!!
THE MOST INCREDIBLE CINEMATIC MASTERPIECE EVER!!!!12/18/2002
This movie has everything from drama to comedy to romance to suspense. The characters are pliable and the special effects are good(pending on the time that the film was made). I give this wonderful creation a A++++-. Thank you Peter Jackson for your genius!!!!
a movie which starts out gory (the first 5 minutes turns my stomach) and goes straight downhill from there.. but man, what a ride. sure its cheesy, sure its gory, sure its funny (yep, funny) but where else will you ever hear 'your mother ate my dog'.. highly recommended!
The best bad movie you'll ever see7/24/1999
Combine all you thought you knew about bad horror movies and you'd end up with 'Dead Alive.' From gallons and gallons of fake blood and gore to the caminess of a boy who loves his mum too much, this movie covers it all: extreme gore, extreme close-ups, bad plot, and bad acting. This movie even has great cheesy quotes that you can spice up any conversations with like 'Your mom ate my dog!' and 'I kick $%^ for the Lord!' All in all; a quality flick that I never stopped laughing at.
