REVIEW: The Video Dead (1987)
Writer/director Robert Scott is a
cinematic genius. No doubt about it.
His eerily surreal feature-length debut is
chocked full of so much comedic gold
that I honestly do not think I can
accurately describe its brilliance without
completely destroying what’s left of my
brain. The film has everything: skunk
humping poodles, blue pompadour
zombies, and overzealous oral hygiene
are just a few of the kookier elements
sprinkled throughout the course of the
story. Who knew that watching a brother
and sister attempt to save the world
from bashful and emotionally unstable
zombies would yield so much pleasure?
I’m literally counting the minutes until I
can watch it again without feeling like a
total loser. Thank God for Netflix.
Written and directed by Robert Scott. Starring Michael St. Michaels, Thaddeus Golas, and Douglas Bell. 90 minutes.
Overall Score: A thick and cheesy 10 out of a possible 10.
