Dead and Deader - 2006

Pros: most fun I've had in a long time

Cons: seriously, this doesn't apply

The Bottom Line:
“One step over the dead-line I tread,
In this graveyard of stiffs,
I am the deadest of the dead”
~Matt Harvey

Once I realized I was the most serious person involved in this movie, I went ahead and enjoyed it for the idiocy it was. Dead and Deader involved a team of Special Ops that were investigating one of their ‘out bases’ they had lost contact with. Once they arrive at the camp, they find quite a few dead bodies lying about then are attacked by some mutant army guys that bust through the door.

 After shooting a few of them and noticing they don’t exactly die, a locker suddenly opens and some captain or something jumps out and says “I won’t become one of them” and tosses a grenade into the mix. I’m thinking, damn, there goes the star of the show in the first five minutes, dead as a doornail.

Next shot is a base in California, the morgue. There lays our hero, Lt. Bobby Quinn, stretched out and ready for an autopsy. I figure we are going to get the story, starring him, via flashbacks. But, oh, no. Instead, just as the coroner pauses over his supine body with a Stryker saw, Lt. Quinn sets up and asks what the hell is going on. Ok, Army or no Army, as soon as that happens the only way they will be able to find me is to follow the brown stains on the floor.

Turns out Lt. Quinn is technically dead but not really dead. He has no pulse or heartbeat, yet here he is walking and talking … with a strange desire for raw meat. So he ends up joining forces with some unlikely people, including poor Mrs. Wisteria, to combat the tainted zombie soldiers and kill the plague infecting them.

Now I have only a couple of questions. From remembering zombies from days of old, didn’t they just stagger about with staring eyes, fetching someone for a leader? When did they become so vicious? Secondly, they say these guys were infected by some deadly beetle [government manufactured I’m sure] but all viewings of the critter is very scorpion like. Of course, I don’t know the familial history of beetles and/or scorpions … maybe they are one and the same.

Hats off to director Patrick Dinhut for giving me a hearty laugh. No awards, no rating but I’d venture a good R rating just for the people eating and beheadings alone. As far as acting, dear little Colleen Camp put forth her best efforts as the ill fated Mrs. Wisteria, Guy Torry played a humorous cook turned zombie fighter, Judson. Lt. Bobby Quinn was played by Dean Cain who was joined by terminator wannabe Susan Ward as Holly.

They didn’t miss an opportunity throughout the movie to reference some creature feature or another and had several in depth discussions on them. This was an amazingly funny, in a sad sort of way, movie with really bad make up effects on the zombies.

Thanks,
Susi
