5.0 out of 5 stars "Why the long face, something eating you?" March 15 2004
By Crypt
So far most people reviewing this film are pretty much picking out its flaws, which are many indeed, so I won't bother re-listing them. I will say this though; Bruno Mattei's blatant and shameless ripping off of Goblin's Dawn of the Dead and Alien Contamination soundtracks would have certainly made Edward D. Wood Jr. proud. From reading the reviews I was prepared for the worst when I purchased this dvd. I was actually surprised that it was better than most people seem to give it credit for! Sure it has an amazingly inept "Ed Wood-ian" sort of quality... ok yes, it IS in fact a terrible film, but it does have a lot going for it. #1 - The entertainment value. Like Ed Wood's "classics" this film remains totally enjoyable and even has a certain lovable quality despite the fact that it's such an awful film. It's lots of fun and there's never a dull moment.
#2 - There are some truly effective Zombie sequences. The scenes involving the zombie priest at the mission, the zombie kid coming to life in his fathers arms, the dead native coming to life after his "funeral ceremony". Also the zombie hag with a cat inexplicably ripping out through her stomach made me laugh. It made no sense, but it was still cool. #3 - Last but not least, the gore. As the producers said, without blood and entrails, a film like this would be pointless. This film will make your stomach turn. It goes far beyond Dawn of the Dead as far as blood and guts. Even farther than Lucio Fulci's Zombie. The gore is probably not as disturbing as in Day of the Dead because Tom Savini's fx were just so realistic in that one. However the use of real raw meat and pig guts definitely helped "Hell" live up to the splatter genre and then some.

4.0 out of 5 stars Comical March 6 2004
By A Customer
This is a classic B-grade zombie movie. The dubbing into English is as bad as I've ever seen, the plot is borderline incoherent, and the actual film footage makes plan 9 from outer space look decent. The key actors comprise a commando unit who look and act more like a 70's heavy metal band. Then there are two reporters, including the female lead, (who takes her top off in order to get in sync with the natives). The movie has most of its action set in New Guinea but the location is simulated with the constant inter-splicing of safari/nature movie scenes. These cut shots are just so different from the main part of the film that they do not work at all and just seem laughable. The horror is pretty gore-filled without being over the top. The soundtrack by Goblin is somewhat of a highlight in terms of professionalism and ads value to this film. Overall this is worth a look and a laugh, but it does not have enough shock or horror value to keep you riveted. Worth having if you collect these sort of films, but not one of the top shelf examples.

3.0 out of 5 stars NIGHT OF THE ZOMBIES is a cooler name Sept. 5 2003
By Dave
Movie starts off when a factory filled with toxins is let loose and everyone in the factory is killed and turned into zombies. Meanwhile a Swat team, a chick and a camera dude go to an island to investigate bizarre stuff there, and eventually run into zombies. Later on they find out that the natives there are turning into zombies which later reveals that the factory with the toxic [stuff] polluted their water supply. So it goes on to the end with the battle between the living and the dead.
I love this movie alot, but I felt that 3 stars was a fair enough score for it for this reason. The picture was really bad. There are some scenes in the movie where you can't figure out what's going on in the movie cuz it was way too dark. The acting was a bit annoying to where one guy tells the others about a thousand times to shoot the zombies in the head and the others act dumb and don't shoot them in the head. All in all, the gore was creepy and sick and the plot is actually not that bad. If it had better picture it would of been a classic film.
(plenty of zombies)

Also known as "Night Of The Zombies", this is possibly the very worst in the countless Italian zombie films. It has many of the same concepts and ideas from a number of other zombie films and also "borrows", without shame, some of the musical score from DAWN OF THE DEAD. Bruno Mattei was clearly fascinated by the work of Romero and Lucio Fulci but sadly could not re-create the masterpiece that was DAWN or even the lesser ZOMBIE 2.
HELL OF THE LIVING DEAD involves a chemical spill that causes a zombie plague across the world. An elite but poorly-dubbed SWAT team is sent in to handle the problem. With the help of a female reporter who decides to take it all off in an attempt to communicate with a group of islanders, the team attempts to take on the walking dead. There is a whole lot of "stock footage" used for absolutely no reason, which really helps push the odd level through the roof. If that's not enough, we got random cross-dressing and some psycho SWAT guy who won't stop teasing the zombies. The memorable ending is also worth the price of admission but I won't spoil it for you.
If you're not a fan of either gore, Italian zombie films, or just all-around bad movies, you may want to avoid this one but if you are, this one sure is a treat. This one is like "Lucio Fulci meets Ed Wood". If you enjoyed it, you may want to upgrade to the similiar but superior ZOMBIE 3. It's not as entertaingly terrible but it still works.

This movie is really bad, but I found it to be very entertaining. It starts off well enough in some high tech facility that looks like a nuclear power plant but isn't. Read more
