#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.Read more ›
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)
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 morePublished on Nov. 14 2002 by Douglas Ratcliff
