So tonight I would like to introduce you to my nightmare. As if flying wasnt horrible enough, Samuel L Jackson got tired of snakes being on his plane so he booted them off hardcore SLJ style. He put the wrath of god up in some snakes. Unfortunately the passanger manifest from a flight from LA to Paris did not include uncle Sam. Woe to the passangers of this ill fated flight who must now battle infected scientists and military gaurds.
Flight of the Living Dead AKA Plane Dead
GOOD LORD WHO WRITES THIS GARBAGE.
The movie was campy and slightly over the top but it came out months after snakes on a plane which makes me think someone saw the movie and thought. Hey lets do it with zombies. I mean come on people where is the originality and ingenuity anymore. The movie was every other zombie movie ever made it was just a different environment. It had nothing that was suprising or original and it was truthfully boring. usually I get some kick out of the really bad or really low budget zombie films but this one was just horrid. Now maybe it was my anger at being forced to watch snakes on a plane (because I WILL watch anything with Samuel L Jackson in it), but this film was pretty bad. I think it was the air of importance that this film had about itself that angered me. Who knows, all I know is this is NOT a Romero level film, don’t be suprised by the film being subpar.
I’m not even going to go any further with this debacle.
If you watch this movie take a bottle of your favorite liqour along for the ride.
next week a disertation on the history and social impact of important zombies and their rise to power among the film world.
