A fun campy zombie movie.
6 August 2018 | by lord-bladeSee all my reviews

Flight of the Living Dead is exactly what you'd expect it to be. A low budget, campy, silly zombie movie that is ludicrous, violent and full of D-list actors. It's a film full of "Hey! I know that guy!" actors who play the bit roles in a thousand different shows and movies.

The special effects are pretty bad, definitely low budget. The airplane they're on is definitely built to "Hollywood standard". Having crucial control panels in places where they never would be, amazing ducts that seem to have more space in them than the plane itself, sections of the plane that are made of titanium or cardboard as the scene requires. lol

The acting is wonderfully bad, with lots of stupid one liners, completely out of place comments and just horrible decisions that only ever happen in the movies.

All in all, it's a fine example of a fun movie to waste a couple of hours with.
