"Living Dead Lock Up" is a triumph of creativity and technology over limited resources. The video is a spooky depiction of zombies inhabiting the basement of a jail, and the chills are real. "Living Dead Lock Up" may not contain the most original of plots, but it knows how to use the latest in digital filming techniques to elicit horror through creepy effects and imaginative cinematography. The acting by the film's creators and others is quite effective for this sort of film, and there is also effective use of old-time newsreels to provide just the right historic touch. What's amazing is that all this was put together on a budget of only a few hundred dollars, and the result is anything but cheesy-looking. Give it a try if you're interested in some creative, nightmarish jolts.
