The Dead Next Door
The Dead Next Door is a great classic. The story is quickly told; the world is overran by zombies and the few survivors are organized with zombie squads – soldiers cleaning up and defending humans. The team the movie follows has the mission to find the original outbreak, the laboratory of Dr. Bow who created the virus, in order to find a cure.
When they arrive in the almost zombie free area, they soon find out why there aren’t many undead. A religious cult around a Reverend Jones holds the zombies in a basement, feeds them and considers it as a test of their faith. Why they also sacrifice a woman remains a mystery though.
Anyways, the zombie squad, along with 2 scientists, finds Dr. Bow’s notes and starts to work on a cure. Meanwhile, they ran into a member of Jones’ cult; Vincent. The guy attacked the squad when he heard they try to find a way to cure/kill the zombies; another member of the squad was infected earlier and its essential they find the cure before he turns into a zombie.
The real awesome part about this movie are the tiny references. Would you call it coincidence if you have a Dr. Savini, the soldiers King and Romero and a squad leader named Raimi in one and the same movie?
Famous last words: Gory, entertaining, the cult is a nice twist and the end is just awesome. Totally worth to watch!
