Hell of the Living Dead, also known as Night of the Zombies, is about a New Guinea chemical accident that is bringing the dead back to life. As the dead are roaming around on New Guinea, some news reporters and a SWAT team enter in hopes to see it for themselves. Soon they are attacked by the zombies and they have to fight for their lives.
I have heard so many negative reviews for this film and plenty of positive reviews, and when I heard that Anchor Bay was releaseing it on DVD for under 15 bucks I knew I had to have it. Mainly because I am a zombie fan. Well after viewing this film I found that I really enjoyed it. Sure, there are plenty of things that could make this film bad, the horrible dubbing, the cheesy acting, the part where the film becomes a cannibal film instead of a zombie film. I’m not really one who likes cannibal movies, I prefer a zombie film. There are also some good things about this movie, for instance this is one gory movie. The gore doesn’t stop until the movie is over. The zombies in this film aren’t that bad looking, even though this film was a low budget release. The zombies kind of reminded me of Tom Savini’s work with the zombies in Dawn of the Dead. So overall, if you’re a fan of zombie movies then I am sure you’ll be really glad to have this film in your collection. It’s a fun zombie film to watch. It can be slow in places, but there are other parts that’ll make up for it. I give this movie a 6 out of 10.
