I really heard a lot of cool things about this flick. I became a huge pete jackson fan when lord of the rings came out, and the premise of a Zombie film directed by the New zealand fellow seemed like it would be worth checking out.
I was sorely mistaken.
The so called horror never really comes of as any kind of scary, and the supposed comic slapstick stuff is nowhere near as clever or enjoyable as evil dead 2, a frequent comparison. The gags, as they were, are really just long, drawn out scenes of shameless cartoon violence, and i was really turned off by the whole thing. The idiots who edited the US version basically butchered all of the violence, making almost the entire final twenty minutes nearly incomprehensible, or maybe it was due to the nothing-budget, i'm not really sure because it hardly ever shows much of anything.
The best way to describe this film is like putting a frog in a blender and then trying, through heavy, thick beer goggles of some sort, to watch the horrid thing spin around in juicy, revolting agony. It might come off as entertaining if you really stretch your imagination, or you have a tremendous amount of time on your hands.
in other words, avoid this one at all costs.

I can'not believe I went and rented (...) this movie at my local Blockbuster!! I was actually told (...) to rent this b/c is soooooooo scary and damn good. Boy was I in for a surprise. Now I notice allot of the reviewers says to get the "UNRATED VERSION",,, and I did ONLY watch the RATED version.... But I am sorry not even the UNRATED VERSION could make up for the storyline itself. This movie is straigt DEAD!!. I am sorry,,, but you all don't know what a scary movie is!!
A scary HORROR movie is a movie that will keep you INTENSE and JUMPING to see what is going to scare the hell out of your pants NEXT!! I mean these are scary movies for the 80's: Halloween, Friday the 13th, Nightmare on Elm Street, The Shinning, The Thing.
But this movie: DEAL ALIVE needs to be put DEAD,, cause its is no movie work keeping or renting. Sorry but it's very stupid. Trust me on this GUYS and GALS. I am affraid that we got dead beat reviewers on here that were probably bought off to put a good review on this movie!! All I can say is: THIS MOVIE IS STUPID"!!!!!!!!

A great over-the-top horror movie by director Peter Jackson. Unfortunately though, the DVD mastering process went horribly wrong. While the quality is actually very good, especially for a 1993 movie, you can basically only touch the remote to start playing but you better not do anything afterwards because the DVD will go out of sync, and will not restore to normal playback. If you skip ahead to a scene, you will only hear some stuttering audio but video will not come up. All the other 83 dvds I own do not expose this problem so it's definately not my player. Wait for a re-release !

You could do a lot better than Dead Alive. I can't believe more people like this film than other good splatter zombie horror-comedies like Re-Animator and The Return of the Living Dead. Dead Alive has very little wit. It wasn't that funny, either. Especially the conclusion. I didn't have a problem with the gore. In fact, I sat through most of the film without a single problem but I couldn't stand the fact that this movie wasn't funny.

this movie was by far the worst movie i have ever witnessed in my existence. the story was terrible, the concept of a 'rat monkey' starting a chain reaction was beyond stupid, and the blood was just annoying to watch. unfortunately im unable to recover the 97 minutes i killed to watch this. then again, i was led to believe that this was supposed to be a horror movie. as most are aware of, a good horror movie has not yet come to pass.

Dead Alive is nowhere near the ranks of being the funniest horror-comedy because it falls due to its own graphic and bloody violence. The only inventive scene in the movie was when the priest started fighting the zombies. Other horror-comedies such as Army of Darkness are good because of a lovable hero, a silly plot, and villains that are just as stupid as the hero. Watch Army of Darkness instead.

One word for this movie, it's great, for me one of the best horror movie ever made, and the funniest also. Peter Jackson made really great movies before "The lord of the ring", like "heavently creatures", "bad taste" and "braindead".
But this version doesn't worth any star, because it is cut (about 10 minutes), the other available version of this movie comes from England, it's uncut but it's a pan & scan version.
Also wait for a new edition, it's better
5 Stars for the movie, 0 for this edition

THIS IS THE MOST STUPIDIST MOVIE TO EVER BE MADE. I'M SUPRISED IT WAS EVEN MADE INTO A MOVIE. MOST OF THE MOVIE IS LIP TALKING AND HARD TO UNDERSTAND. THIS MOVIE HAS NO SCARES OR IS NOT EVEN FUNNY. IT DOESN'T EVEN LOOK LIKE A 1993 MOVIE, MORE LIKE A 50'S FLICK GONE BAD. THIS MOVIE DOESN'T EVEN DESERVE TO GET 1 STAR, I'D GIVE IT A BIG FAT 0 OR A F-. WHAT A TOTAL WASTE OF THIS MOVIE BEING MADE. YOU WANT A GOOD ZOMBIE FLICK SEE: RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD, RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD 2, NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD AND DAWN OF THE DEAD.
