No one cared thus far. Do you?

About the Two Cuts:
1. Braindead/Dead Alive has many versions and cuts. The first one here (Option 1 & Option 2) is the Unrated Cut at 01:37:13.

2. The other available cut is the longest cut available at 01:43:11 and includes material from a bootlegged copy. These extra scenes are more plot-related and not really censorship-related. As in, you really won’t get much extra gore by watching this.
Note: This version has an audio problem – a lower-volume second audio track can be heard in the background in some places.

AKA: Dead Alive
Directed by: Peter Jackson
Starring: Timothy Balme (Lionel), Diana Peñalver (Paquita), Elizabeth Moody (Mother), Ian Watkin (Uncle)
Country: New Zealand
Language: English (Eng Subs)
Genres: Gore-Splatter

Plot – Spoilers:
The big daddy of splatter-gore and comedy-gore, Braindead shoved in as much of it as was possible at the time with existing technologies.

The story is sort of fairy-taleish – set in New Zealand, a storegirl Paquita’s grandmother prophesies that her prince-charming will lead her to everlasting love. The prince charming here is Lionel who lives in a mansion with a pompous mother who bullies him. So Lionel not only has to overcome his mother but also prove worthy in Paquita’s eyes. Help comes in the form of a mutant rat-monkey that was smuggled into the NZ zoo from Sumatra. The rat-monkey bites Lionel’s mother and she begins transforming and biting everyone possible. And so on.

    Option 2 errored out and would not play. Option one has the voice issue, but it’s not that bad. I made it through the film without too much issue. Always a favorite.

    As always, thanks to the folks at Effed Up for hosting this content. We all appreciate your willingness to preserve extreme cinema. Thank you.

    One of my all time favourites and the best line delivered but a man of the cloth – “I kick ass for the Lord!”

    Always a favorite. Horror, gore, comedy, the purfect trifecta. You can have Lord of the Rings, (to Hollywood), this is Jackson’s Masterpiece. Just plain fun.

    Probably the goriest film on this site and on par with ”Evil Dead”. If this was a serious movie it would probably be banned everywhere, but its so hilarious in parts its most likely not considered as a video nasty. Prior to this, Peter Jackson made ”Bad Taste”, another film in this genre and although its not as gory, it has some stomach churning scenes in it. Worth checking out.
