1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible movie June 22 2014
By Sven
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Absolute rubbish, don't waste your time and money. Bad acting, terrible cgi fx. one of the few movies I could not get past the half hour mark. If you're thinking GoT meets the walking dead, you will be terribly disappointed.

3.0 out of 5 stars I'M NOT DEAD YET. Jan. 29 2014
By The Movie Guy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
In 1349 during the Black Plague in Britain a group of knights lead by a priest (Feth Greenwood) are on a secret mission, which you already know is that they carry the Holy Grail which unfortunately is not an effective zombie weapon. They travel through the valley of the cursed, one that looks like it should have a wizard named "Tim" and a killer bunny with fangs, but it doesn't, just zombies.

Finally somebody got this Black Plague thing correct, it was zombies. I really was growing tired of that rat/flea/sanitation global warming nonsense. Eventually they encounter Badriyah (Vivien Vilela) a "witch" who knows some earth magic and more importantly how to deal with zombies. Oh yeah, there are some bad guys after them too.

The film is consumed with them traveling over desolate land. You can easily skip about the first 30 minutes. The movie shows "hordes" of zombies in the distant, but it was too low budget for them to hack up more than a half dozen or so at a time. For historical cheese "Vikingdom" is better. And for zombies, just pick one.

Great historical film. Should be on the "The History Channel" right after "Noah's Ark."

Sex and nudity (Vivien Vilela). Normally I don't comment on the sex scenes, but this one had an incredible amount of slurping kissing. It was funny to listen to. 3 stars for stupidity enjoyment.

4.0 out of 5 stars good Popcorn movie June 27 2014
By Amanda Felix - Published on Amazon.com
No big known actors here but not bad acting. It is set during the times of the Black Plague and a Monk is given the task of transporting a church relic. With 4 knights to protect him they run afoul of a bandit and his men when they defend themselves. To elude them, the knights and priest enter a cavern that leads them into a land inhabited by the dead. They find a woman who has been exiled to this land. She is not trusted but only she knows the way out and will lead them if they take her with them. The dead and the vengeful bandits are on their trail but with the holy relic drawing the evil dead and the bandits determined to kill them they are in for the fight. The direction could have been better and the knights do things no soldier or experienced warrior would do but the story line is good. Too bad this was not a big budget movie, it would have been great.

3.0 out of 5 stars good for a low budget movie. beat my expectatiins May 10 2014
By Colin S. Crane - Published on Amazon.com
Its a B or even a C movie. I didn't have high expectations going in besides expecting on turning it off within 30 mins. Surprisingly I could sit through the whole thing. Not a bad story not poorly presented but its a low budget movie

3.0 out of 5 stars It'll do May 1 2014
By Mike V - Published on Amazon.com
If you are looking for a zombie genre movie that doesn't completely suck this is a good one. It's a B movie with a few cringe worthy spots, but the acting isn't terrible; don't get me wrong, there will be no Oscar winners out of this, but I've see much worse.

Without giving away too much, it's a nice departure from the overused urban zombie apocalypse, at least this one has some scenery. If you have any knowledge about the time period, forget it while you are watching this and you'll be fine. I'm an historian and I kept having to remind myself it was a B grade movie.

Ending is a bit cliche, but what do you expect?

3.0 out of 5 stars Where Else Are You Gonna Get Zombies, Knights, and the Holy Grail? B-Movie Heaven! That's where! Jan. 15 2014
By E. Lee Zimmerman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Look. I’m not going to mess you. I’m going to honest right up front and tell you that I enjoyed KNIGHT OF THE DEAD. If you’d truly like to know why, as well as what I found sub-par to the whole experience, then you’re free to go ahead and read on, especially after the below disclaimer. The short story? I tend to enjoy B movies. In fact, I tend to enjoy them more than the average bloke? And do you want to know why? That’s because I can relate to the minds who conceive, pen, and complete B movies. They’re generally folks like me – folks who’d love nothing more than getting together with a bunch of friends and a camcorder and making their own tidy, little epic. It doesn’t have to be perfect. It doesn’t have to be all that inspired. The dirty little secret is there’s more heart and soul in the frames they shoot than in anything I’ve ever seen from Spike Lee.

Now, as promised, here’s my personal disclaimer …

(NOTE: The following review will contain minor spoilers necessary solely for the discussion of plot and/or characters. If you’re the kind of reader who prefers a review entirely spoiler-free, then I’d encourage you to skip down to the last three paragraphs for my final assessment. If, however, you’re accepting of a few modest hints at ‘things to come,’ then read on …)

A band of knights tasked with escorting the Holy Grail through a dark country get more than they bargained for when the earn the ire of ‘an area man’ who happens to be a bit of a local warlord. Their only escape is through the Valley of the Black Death, a zombie-infested wasteland with more nooks, crannies, and crevasses than any God-made world should have. And, by the way, night is falling … so they’d best be on their way …

I won’t trouble you with the usual particulars I cite while talking about KNIGHT OF THE DEAD. This isn’t out of any disrespect to these players; rather, everyone turns in a serviceable performance in a relatively serviceable picture. Besides, these are probably a lot of faces you’ve never seen before and are unlikely to ever see again. Once more, I say that because of the craziness of this industry, not as any reflection on their work. All that truly matters is what they achieve in KNIGHT OF THE DEAD, and I found that to be an unbridled assault on the senses of the viewer.

Writer/director Mark Atkins – a man who has undoubtedly cut his teeth on B movies – knew exactly what he wanted with KNIGHT, and it’s clear to this reviewer that he no doubt achieved it. His band of brothers – each one flawed more than the last with blood lust and a bad accent – remain dedicated to one another in much the same way Spielberg’s troops did in SAVING PRIVATE RYAN, only the stakes here are a bit more medieval and – shall we say – less organic? They’re squaring their shoulders against zombies at a time when no one knew what a zombie was which only serves to heighten the tension. Granted, it would’ve been nice if the zombie make-up would’ve appeared more – erm – zombie-like; and it also would’ve been nice if there could’ve been greater consistency to what type of zombie they are (the slow, lumbering type versus ones who can run, jump, and fight); but that’s chump change in a world whose currency was how hard you can swing an axe or how quickly you can cleave a man’s skull from his shoulders.

To Atkins’ credit, he gets terrific mileage out of these shooting locations. Everything is draped in shades of gray, and he manages to instill a lifeless countryside as yet one more zombie in the mix. Others might dismiss that a camera trickery, but, as one who takes his B movies seriously, that’s a gift, and it’s one that kept on giving through this dark and treacherous KNIGHT.

KNIGHT OF THE DEAD (2013) is produced by Paradise City Pictures and Automatic Entertainment GL. DVD distribution is being handled by Inception Media Group. As for the technical specifications … yeah, alright, you got me. The sights and sounds here? They left something to be desired. There’s some noticeable graininess throughout, and whoever held the boom mike should probably be drawn and quartered at the earliest convenience. But ask me if I feel like I honestly missed that much, and I’ll happily tell you, “No.” This was a picture a five-year-old could understand, so if that makes me a five-year-old, then so be it! Special features? Nada. Big miss ‘cause I would’ve liked to have seen something.

RECOMMENDED … but only if you’re a true purveyor of B movies. The rest of you? Hate me if you want – even vote this review ‘unhelpful’ if you must – but I actually enjoyed quite a bit of KNIGHT OF THE DEAD. Yes, yes, and yes! Of course, it wasn’t exactly smartly made. Of course, it’s occasionally grainy, and, yes, it’s very hard to hear lines of dialogue over some muddled accents and gritty sound work. But – and here’s the real trick to getting any thumbs up as a B movie – it kept my interest in spite of all of those glaring and obvious weaknesses. Truth be told, I’ve seen films from mainstream directors that have had me reaching for the fast forward button on the remote, but methinks KNIGHT’s makers knew exactly what audience they were trying to please. They found it in me. Will they find it in you?

In the interests of fairness, I’m pleased to disclose that the fine folks at Inception Media Group provided me with an advance DVD copy of KNIGHT OF THE DEAD by request for the expressed purposes of completing this review.
