Some dead are better left dead..., 20 July 2013
Author: Paul Magne Haakonsen from Denmark

"Knight of the Dead" was bad, no doubt about it. And you have that sense of impending boredom and doom lurking about you right from the very start.

The storyline in the movie was next to non-existing, and it was weak at best. And the movie wasn't really helped much along by having one-dimensional characters that lacked personalities and any level of worth to make you care the least bit about them.

"Knight of the Dead" is filmed in very dull and earth-tone colors, which was kind of interesting enough, as it did help to paste the image of a bleak and gloomy world set in the middle ages where zombies roam around the countryside. However, it just got to much in overall, because you sit there and want to see more colors in the movie eventually.

One of the better things in the movie was the the costumes. They looked nice enough and had some fairly interesting and nice touches to them.

The acting in the movie was adequate. Mind you, it wasn't mind-boggling, award-winning or outstanding in any memorable way. But people did good enough with the jobs they were giving. They were just fighting an uphill battle against a storyline with virtually no proper plot or meaning whatsoever.

There is a little bit of gore throughout the movie, but hardly enough to satisfy gore-hounds and fans of the zombie genre. And it is most definitely not enough to make up for the ghastly lack of storyline.

You would think that zombies in the middle ages would make for a good setting, and you would be right about it, but not everything that glitters is gold, and this movie sure wasn't that! "Knight of the Dead" is boring and rather pointless. The movie never really got up in pace, but just trotted straight ahead in a dull pace, never working up any kind of excitement or scares.
