The Horror Section – Flight of the Living Dead
I know, it’s an incredibly stupid title. When you hear it, you’re thinking it’s a parody of some sorts, and thus the creators should be shot. You read the back of the DVD, see some of the screen shots, and it appears to be a serious film. It’s truly one of those you take a 50/50 chance on.
The premise is basically as the title states. At first, I thought how on Earth could this work? But I always have the habit of imagining planes as small. But then I realize that planes can be massive, and at sometimes two stories, such as the plane in this story. Anyways, it’s the typical “we created a virus for Government use and ah fuck…that spilled”. You don’t need much more than that. It was originally created as a film to be distributed to theaters, but got the DTD treatment instead. So, because of that everything is top notch. Great effects, the characters well done and although mostly are just fodder for the zombies, the one’s they do spend time on really work. The best of course being Kevin J. O’Connor’s character, Frank. He’s just as funny and entertaining as he was in The Mummy, and Van Helsing.
It’s not destined to be an all-time classic, but it more than deserves your respect and as well as having the honor of being placed in the zombie pantheon of great films.
Best Death: Frank being attacked by a senior citizen who tries to gum him to death.
