Film Fest: Undead

By Peter Hemminger

Undead is an over-the-top, ridiculously silly, very Australian horror-sci-fi-comedy hybrid well aware of its audience and how to cater to it. Written, produced, edited and directed with oodles of style and confidence by brothers Michael and Peter Spierig, it’s a kindred spirit of Peter Jackson’s Dead Alive, all extraneous gore and nonsensically badass characters. Characters are nothing more than cliches in the best way possible. At one point, zen warrior Marion does a back-flip, digs his spurs into the wall and proceeds to shoot down a flock of zombies while suspended upside down by his boots. Essential viewing for those who feel a fist-fight against zombie fish constitutes true entertainment.
