Flight of the Living Dead: Outbreak on a Plane (Plane Dead) Reviews
Enough on the plain to Eat !
After being introduced to several characters which we should feel something for, the virus is unleashed and panic ensues as passengers turn into mindless zombies eating anyone in their path.
I think this was supposed to be associated with the "Return of the Living Dead" series and not the "Night of the Living Dead" series. There were some delightfully funny moments (such as an old woman zombie trying to gnaw on a guy, but she doesn't have teeth), but there's more unintentional humor (such as having an airplane with a floor so thin that bullets can go through it and zombies can tear it up from below with ease). The characters too are equally annoying, no one is really good in it. Just a horrible mess.
The blood flows freely and the pacing is fast and furious for the last forty0five minutes. Director Scott Thomas sure knows how to keep things lively. The problem is that the first half drags and things do take some time to get started. There's a lot of plot to set up for the mayhem that follows and most of it is pretty ridiculous. I think in real life you'd be hard pressed to find a commercial airline that would transport scientific zombie experiments no matter how experienced the one guard you put in charge of it is.
There is, however, some inspired casting, most notably Richard Tyson and Raymond Barry. There are some impossibly hot stewardesses and a great villain in Erick Avari. He's pretty ordinary as a human villain, but when he's transformed into the living dead it's an impressive sight. He makes for one of the most sinister-looking zombies in movie history.
There's a lot of fun to be had in "Flight of the Living Dead". There's nothing like watching zombies being sucked out of a plane at 35, 000 feet. A little more of that during the first half of this would have really made tis a big winner. As it stands now, it's a made-for-video movie that bests most of the studio horror flicks that made it to the silver screen this year.
Can't really recommend UNLESS your a HUGE zombie nut and can't get enough of them, other wise chances are you've seen it all before.
