Dead Alive (Movie)
February 12, 1993
Braindead (New Zealand 1992), released as Dead Alive in North America, is a zombie comedy splatstick horror film directed by Peter Jackson.
Although it starts with the capture of a zombie-creating creature on the eerie Skull Island, the movie is relatively low-key in its opening half. Only in the second part does it spiral out of control into a blood-filled zombie film.
