Dead Alive (1992)

Peter Jackson directed Dead Alive long before he started the great Lord of the Rings franchise and his current project The Hobbit. Imagine what Jackson could have done if he had Weta Digital around back then. This zombie flick has been banned across many countries and has to be one of the goriest films ever. One scene required five gallons of fake blood per second to pull off one of these living dead scenes in which made me even appalled.

Lionel, played by Timothy Balme is the by product of an overbearing mother and when Lionel finally gets a new girlfriend, all hell breaks lose. Mom becomes a flesh eating zombie of course and what follows is a zombie infestation that Lionel must slaughter every walking dead in his path making for an entertaining zombie massacre.

No official awards were won here but Peter Jackson made a classic if you can stomach watching this gory scary movie.

Best zombie kill scene: Lionel armed with his lawnmower crashed a zombie party held at his mothers’ house. These zombies drink alcohol, make love or something like it and rock to loud music.

Synopsis:

A young man's mother is bitten by a Sumatran rat-monkey. She gets sick and dies, at which time she comes back to life, killing and eating dogs, nurses, friends, and neighbors.
