Audience Reviews for The Dead Hate the Living

  • May 10, 2011
    I have a soft spot for Full Moon movies and I happen to know the director so I have two biases from the start. Putting both aside, this film falls into the so-bad-it's-good category. Mr. Parker should've known that when he blatantly rips off 'The Beyond' it's not such a good idea to have a Fulci reference every minute. This movie does have potential but all the money was spent on shooting on film instead of shooting digitally and casting better actors and not resorting to an atrocious display of CGI-fire effects.

    The Dead Hate The Living! is a shining example of how not to make a successful horror movie. The characters are very one dimensional, the acting is atrocious, and the premise is just a bad idea all the way around. This is a bad movie. As for the horror element this film doesn't let up with the so-called "Blood & Guts." I think in one part they actually mention horror movie icon/special effects designer Tom Savini among its many references. However that is all they do, they just mention him, the effects are nowhere near Savini quality. In fact their effects and makeup look like they were purchaced at their local Halloween store. I know that they were on a very limited budget with $150 thousand, but you would think they could do a little better here. The movie is about a group of friends, apparently brothers and sisters as well, who are filming a horror movie about a zombie with jaundice or something like that. They break into an abandoned morgue? Hospital? Lab? and start filming. Wait! They are not alone. They awaken the spirit of Rob Zombie who comes back to wreak his havoc on the living. Why dont they just leave? Well they can't. They are stuck in a different dimension now. Who cares? The movie is noted however for having the late Matthew McGrory; you might know him as Tiny in House of 1000 Corpses. It makes me feel bad knowing that he was in such a bad movie. I am sure that he has been in other bad ones but this my friends takes the cake. I am going to give this movie a 1 out of 10 and may god have mercy on its soul. "Hey, Throw this TV at the Zombies. That will distract them." S!D

    I have experienced that many Low Budget Movies depends on the "Movie Makers" and they can be very entertaining but this was a disaster.
