My oppinion:
Peter 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!

My rating:
