BMA Magazine head honcho Allan Sko said this of zombie flick The Dead: "The Dead switches the familiar American city setting for the wide sunny plains of Africa and does away with the trend of running zombies/infected to favour the slow, shuffling kind. And to great effect. The flat sunny setting forces the Ford Brothers to be clever with creating tension, relying more on an effective slow creeping dread and less on cheap shock moments where the soundtrack is clumsily ratcheted to 11. The characters are intelligent and sympathetic thus doing away with many frustrating moments of the genre, allowing us to genuinely fear for their well-being. This is a solid zombie think piece with an apt ending that lingers in the mind afterwards. And yes vouchers for viscera; it’s not without moments of genuine gorey awesomeness.”
And he slapped a four star review on it to boot. If that sounds like your thing, we have three copies to give away. To win, email email@example.com and your plan for the zombie apocalypse.
