Brainwashed army of the dead from New Zealand.
30 July 2012 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

Teenage Michael Tucker is brainwashed by the evil Dr.Howell and after returning home he kills his mum and dad via shotgun.Michael is sent to a lunatic asylum and released after seven years.Along with three friends he returns to the remote island where Dr.Howell performs hideous brain surgeries on his patients."Death Warmed Up" by David Blyth is often regarded as the first splatter flick from New Zealand.It's pretty gory and gloomy horror flick with plenty of visceral chase scenes.The use of color lighting provides plenty of stylish atmosphere and the acting is fairly good.The gore effects are quite nasty and they include graphic impalements,brain drilling operations and exploding heads.I am fairly sure that young Peter Jackson was heavily influenced by "Death Warmed Up" whilst doing his splatter comedy "Bad Taste".8 splatter movies out of 10.
