Shocktober: Braindead (Dead Alive)

Hello, Creepypasta Wiki community, and welcome to Shocktober. It wouldn't be October without buckets of blood, so I've brought you the film which held the bloodiest film ever award, at 1,000 gallons of fake blood. That is a very, very large sum of blood and gore, so I see no reason to put it off any further.


This 1992 horror/comedy zombie film from living legend Peter Jackson (LoTR, King Kong) was originally a commercial failure upon release, but after he himself became the legendary household name he is today, the film gathered a massive cult following.

The infection starts from a creature called the Sumatran Rat-Monkey, a hybrid caused by Tree Monkeys being raped by plague carrying rats. The film follows Lionel Cosgrove, as his mother Vera, is bitten by the Rat-Monkey, starting the infection. Your typical ultra-gore zombie comedy begins, as the infection spreads based upon this one progenitor.

With many memorable scenes, such as the weaponization of a lawn mower, I would not recommend this film to anyone whom can not stomach dark humor and gore. This film is not for those people. You will see a zombie baby be put inside of a blender at one point, and living intestines at another. This is a film that captures all nonsensical wonders in one place.

As for references, the Sumatran Rat-Monkey was from Skull Island. Yes, the same Skull Island King Kong takes place on. Funny enough, Peter Jackson would later direct his own version of King Kong. You even get to see the natives of Skull Island, which the King Kong films have made us very familiar with.

The effects in this movie are completely practical. They look nice, and the film's 3 million dollar budget was certainly put to use. Of course, you have your 90's flare, such as prosthetic arms being cut off, and rubber, and otherwise gummy organs, but that's part of the fun.

This film is not meant to be taken seriously, and that is it's strong point.

Watch this movie, just don't go brain dead in all the fun you'll be having.
