One morning, a young man wakes to find that a small, disgusting creature has attached itself to the base of his brain stem. The creature gives him a euphoric state of happiness but demands human victims in return.
A delicious, mysterious goo that oozes from the earth is marketed as the newest dessert sensation, but the tasty treat rots more than teeth when zombie-like snackers who only want to consume more of the strange substance at any cost begin infesting the world.
A student moves into a run-down building in New York City. His bizarre neighbors make a concoction in their apartment they call wine, but when he takes some of it, he turns into a deformed, murderous monster.
An unlabelled crate from an unknown source is delivered to a house in the woods. The homeowner unwisely accepts the delivery, only to discover it contains a TV set that starts spewing giggling zombies all over the place. When a new family moves into the now-abandoned house, the son discovers the haunted televsion and is soon told what he needs to do to send the zombies back where they belong. Knowing and doing, however, are two very different things, and the zombies are not likely to go quietly. Written by

During filming, actor Jack Stellman who portrayed the undead "Jack" fell ill and the role was then filled by actor Michael St. Michaels who finished the film as the zombie. You can see a noticeable difference in Jack's appearance from the beginning of the film, compared to the end. See more »

The Video Dead is truly another classic Zombie movie. Although corny in parts, it epitomises the true Zombie culture - to devour human flesh and brains. There is no mucking around with this movie. The Zombies come straight out of the box (literally) and the residents are faced with the dilemma of how to entice the flesh eaters back into their haunted television. There is also an unexpected scene in the movie - one which surprised me when I fully expected the person to survive the Zombie encounter.
Although not recommended for those who are not Zombie lovers, it is a must for the Zombie fanatic. After all, Zombies do normally get a bad rap - bring on more Zombie movies.
