Braindead, 1992 – ★★★ (contains spoilers)

This review may contain spoilers.

It tries really, really hard to be funny, and it succeeds more often than it fails, but good lord is this one of the grossest films I’ve ever seen. That could be a plus, in some eyes.. I … kinda tired of it after a while. Some really inventive stuff, though, like the independently mobile viscera and the end form of the mother. And I really liked the look of the light bulb zombie. I think it’s not really for me — I prefer the Evil Dead form of this kind of horror — but I admire it.
