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

A sequel was written for the film, but never materialized. It was to do with a victim instead being pulled into the television set, rather than the zombies coming out, and having to find a way out before the film ended. Director Robert Scott wanted a lot more zombie action, and far more zombies than in his original film but was offered the same budget as the first to make the sequel - he declined and a sequel has yet to come to fruition.

It was the year 1989 (or so), and back then renting horror videos was the coolest thing a kid could do. I remember coming across some strange, hilarious, campy, and downright offensive stuff, and I thought it was great. The Video Dead eventually crossed my path. Now this flick definitly isn't a serious entry in my personal horror hall-o-fame, but now that the years have passed I kinda miss it. True: the acting is bad, and the punch-line about the poodle screwing a skunk is unneccesary at best. (This isn't Hollywood folks. BUT WHO THE HELL NEEDS HOLLYWOOD?) These Days I have began a tedious quest to collect those campy flicks I saw as a kid, and Video Dead is one thats evaded my grasp to date. I truly recommend this film for any Zombie fan or horror enthusiast simply because it is a prime example of B-Movie Glory. Great Zombie make-up EFX... A Twilight Zone-esque story about a posesseed television set... Nostalgic 80's synthed out soundtrack... Chainsaw mayhem... Ands lets not forget about a mysterious Goth girl that seduces the teenage boy (and who almost resembles a male crossdresser)...
Sounds groovy if you ask me!
I still cant find a single copy of this film(no dvd produced to date)
