Zombie sex. Strange. Over the top. Funny at times. Overly long last scene.
One of my favorite bizarre terror movies <3
This movie is exactly what it looks like, a funny and gory piece of entertainment, it is just fun to watch. A must-see to all trash film lovers out there.
Rewatched it today and my opinion remained the same about it. It's highly controversial movie, because one of the most trashiest film I've ever seen on the outside, very gruesome and disgusting at many points, but I still don't feel it as a disadvantage and I don't berate it for that, becasue Braindead is simply a pure fun thanks to its slapstick elements. It didn't want to be more what it really is, which tends to be a lame excuse but sometimes it's suffiecent, becasue the audience doesn't always want watch about serious events and topics on screen.I also think in a very subtle way, but carries a message that a 20-something guy cannot stay with his mother for all eternity. He needs to conquer his angst and finally live his life. That ending scene clearly reminded me for this weird coming of age feeling when the timorous Lionel stood up against his mother once and for all, which concluded that he was reborn and his new life commenced with Paquita.
crazy mindfucking movie. don't watch. it's disturbing. only for splatter fans.
Still the unsurpassed king of splatstick comedies. Not a single drop of that fake blood has gone wasted! The proof that with passion and creativity you can achieve anything.
Usually I enjoy horror comedies and lots of gore, but I just couldn't handle this. I don't know if it was just too over the top for me or what...but I just found myself consistently asking "is it over yet?". And that zombie baby has to have the most annoying laugh I have ever heard in my entire life. I wanted to like this...I really did.
One of the worst movies I know! I have absolutely no idea how this rubbish can be hailed as a horror classic, because everything about it is so silly: the plot is laughable, the characters and actors a joke, the SFX really, really bad and there isn't a single scary moment because everything is so very predictable! DO NOT WATCH THIS, there are so many good horror flicks out there, but Braindead for sure isn't one of them.
