Flight of the Living Dead - Outbreak on a Plane (2007)

Director:  Scott Thomas
Country:  USA
Tagline:  Un-dead at 30000 Feet
Plot:  Some scientists bring an infected colleague onto a plane and all hell breaks loose, literally.
Verdict:  This is another Romero influenced spoof, originally named ‘Plane Dead’, a name they should have, in my opinion, stuck with. It’s full of gore and bad acting, and a whole load of irritating characters you can’t wait to see ripped apart by zombies. It’s in short, Snakes on a Plane with zombies; and yes, it is actually better than Snakes on a Plane, but that’s not hard, is it? It’s easy to watch (well, if you enjoy watching bloody violence, as I do) and a brilliant laugh,  definitely a cult film in the making. If you are a fan of tongue and cheek zombie flicks it’s worth a watch or if you need something to shove on while you are playing drinking games... that’s a thought... you could definitely create a drinking game around this, how about every time a zombie gets shot? Yeah so it’s not going to win awards, okay maybe a Razzie... but I sure as hell enjoyed my plane ride with the dead!
