Audience Reviews for The Dead Undead


A vehicle for Luke Goss as obviously people like him as a vampire and admittedly he is good as a blood sucker. This film is clearly a low budget cheap as chips affair with not too much on offer in the effects arena accept for allot of gun porn hehe the acting is pretty bad from the unknown cast as they do their best 'Blade II Blood Pack' 'Aliens Colonial Marines' impression (badly) and don't really bring across the danger they are clearly in.

Totally unoriginal plot as vamps fight against vamp zombies and are taken down one by one by the surging horde of flesh eaters, its also been made in a way that we've all seen before really, again think 'Aliens' or any other unit of men in a last stand situation.
Basic makeup and very basic looking stunts, explosions and action, filmed mainly with hand held cams it seems which makes it more realistic but also enchances the cheapness haha and a rather blunt quick ending. Vernon Wells cameo at the very end is kinda cool but done obviously to gain that cool kudos.

A couple of young campers are attacked by a zombie/vampire horde and are rescued by mercenary vampires. Upon first reading of the script, I thought the film was going to at least be entertaining, but it falls completely flat once the horde comes out and attacks. One: they just suddenly appear without question or warning except maybe for a child vampire appearing on one of the female campers while she was asleep. The child then flees into a crawlspace in the closet and then maybe one of the most annoying scenes of the film pops up involving a mouse. Luckily, all but one female camper are killed within the first half hour and then the rest of the film involves the mercenaries in an all-out war with plenty of bullets, blood, bad lines and crappy effects. Not to mention, each actor looks like they were reading off of cue cards the entire way through, except for maybe Luke Goss. And to make it all worse, it seems there will be a second part to this film, as evident from the final scene with Vernon Wells (Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior, Weird Science, Fortress). There is nothing going on here, unless to showcase another film where Luke Goss can express his tough-guy persona to the masses. I believe he should get back into another big lead role and stay away from Made-For-TV films like this.

This starts off so bad that it almost begs you to stop/eject/frisbee. If you wait it out a bit, it gets slightly better for a while, then it actually gets watchable. At the end, my buddy and I were both hoping for a sequel. This is what I personally categorize as bad horror. It's a direct-to-DVD zombie film with a budget at just over a million dollars. While I still consider it bad horror, I thought it was pretty good bad horror. Is it three stars compared to other mainstream films I've given three? No, probably not, but for what it is, it's definitely three stars in my book. Vampires with mad cow disease indeed.
