One morning a young man wakes to find a small, disgusting creature has attached itself to the base of his brain stem. The creature gives him a euphoric state of happiness but in return demands human victims.
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.
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.
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

The film was originally meant to have about 14 zombies spew from the cursed television set, all of which were developed characters that had written backgrounds that only the actors portraying them would know. Due to budget constraints and the demand of having grotesque zombies with full latex appliance pieces - the number of zombies was dwindled down to the main five but a sixth was added later in the production when more money was given.

Joshua, Jeff, and Zoe place mirrors on the front door in order to keep the zombies away from the house. Then moments after their dialogue, a camera shot from outside of the house reveals that the mirrors on the front door are now gone. Yet no zombies where ever seen removing them. See more »
But why mirrors?
The reason for the mirrors is simple, the dead can't stand to look at themselves. Same goes for when a living person comes up against one of 'em. When the living person shows fear, it all comes home again, that they're different. All they wanna do is kill the only thing they can never be: the living.
But what if a person could keep from showing fear? Wouldn't he be safe?
Keep from showing fear? Only two ways of doin' 'em in, least as far as I know. First is to, trap 'em in a ...

Everyone who says they hate this movie expected too much from it. A lot of "The Video Dead" is intentional humor that many viewers believe to be unintentional humor. Well, they're wrong.
"The Video Dead", unlike many zombie movies, doesn't try to be the next "Night of the Living Dead". It knows its limitations and doesn't try to break past them. The low budget is obvious, but just adds to the fun. The storyline contains a brand-new zombie myth complete with new methods of elimination, new motives, all that is left of the traditional zombie legend is the fact that they're dead and they walk around. The acting isn't the best, but Rosanna Augesen is excellent as the older sister who eventually has to serve the zombies dinner as they gather at her table! Not unnecessarily gory, some actually scary scenes (the zombies attack the brother as he hangs helplessly from a tree), and plenty of surprises, including a dead dog, a stripper killed by a "garbage man", and a love interest that gets squelched. Just expect anything, go into it with an open mind, and enjoy! I am serious, I love this movie, it makes my Top 5 zombie films list! It's so refreshing to see something so original after recently viewing crap like "Burial Ground" and "Night of the Zombies"!
