**** out of ****    Simon Rumley's "The Living and the Dead" is nearly indescribable in the elaborate, graphically striking ways that it manages to transcend typical genre classification and identification. I guess you could call it a horror film, but then again, the horror is all naturalistic; as they say, terror starts at home. But then, there is a very emotionally engaging dramatic story that draws us in and possibly away from the negative energy that the film gives off, pushing …

THE LIVING AND THE DEAD sounds like it has a decent plot, but don't be fooled. Things are so convoluted and disoriented that even when the plot begins to make sense, it doesn't matter.    Former Lord Donald Brocklebank's (Roger Lloyd-Pack) wife, Nancy (Kate Fahyl) is physically ill and is getting worse.

'The Living and the Dead' tells the story of a husband who has to go away to help pay for his wife's medical bills. The mother is left alone in the home with their adult mentally challenged son and nurse and the result is a horror movie that is just not good. If you enjoy bad movies or bad horror movies specifically this might be a good selection for you, but 90% of the movie loving world will not love this piece of work.    ** NOT RECOMMENDED

Death of a parent, impotence in the face of an unbeatable disease, the awareness of one's own dementia, the fear of being left, alone, unwanted... These are the things that Simon Rumley wants to address, and he does so with a good intensity with The Living and the Dead. Well, as much as mildly I appreciate the film, it's not one I aim to …

"The Living and the Dead"    Realistic Horror    Amos Lassen    Get ready for a descent into hell with the new horror film "The Living and the Dead". It is raw and real and very scary. It is an unusual film in that it is so bold. The cinematography is fantastic, the actors are excellent, the editing is mad and the music is amazing.   "Ex-Lord" Donald Brocklebank finds that he has to leave Longleigh House to go to London in order …
