"Lionel, a Mama's boy has the unwanted
honor of having to look after his overbearingly evil mother.
He ends up falling in love with a local woman who believes
that they're destined together. In a moment of intentional
sabotage of one of their dates, his mother is bitten by a
mysterious creature that ends up zombifying her. It's only
a matter of time before she rises from the dead as a powerful,
bloodthirsty zombie. Soon enough she starts infecting residents
of the town and Lionel has to stop her...and them. "

Jackson's "Braindead" is one of my all
time favourite movies, and I've probably never seen a movie
as many times as I have this one (with exception of "Crocodile
Dundee" which was the first
movie I ever had as a child..). After this many viewings,
I still find it just as funny as I did the first time I saw
it. I feel all the actors' fits in perfectly in their roles.
There are some unforgettable quotes
in this movie, and some of the characters are hilarious (like
the priest, and Lionel's mother). I don't think I've ever
seen a movie gorier then this one. They've used an enormous
amount of fake blood in it and the lawnmower scene is just
so damn great. This is how a horror/comedy should be done!
Actually, I could write several pages of praise for this movie.
If you for some reason haven't seen this one yet, you should
drop whatever you're doing and go buy it straight away, I
promise it's worth it!! Just make sure you get a UNCUT version!
