Kevin Van Hentenryck,
The writer Henry Jordan receives a mysterious TV set and soon he learns that the apparatus is a gateway through which undead come to the world of the living.

It was the year 1989 (or so), and back then renting horror videos was the coolest thing a kid could do. I remember coming across some strange, hilarious, campy, and downright offensive stuff, and I thought it was great. The Video Dead eventually crossed my path. Now this flick definitly isn't a serious entry in my personal horror hall-o-fame, but now that the years have passed I kinda miss it. True: the acting is bad, and the punch-line about the poodle screwing a skunk is unneccesary at best. (This isn't Hollywood folks. BUT WHO THE HELL NEEDS HOLLYWOOD?) These Days I have began a tedious quest to collect those campy flicks I saw as a kid, and Video Dead is one thats evaded my grasp to date. I truly recommend this film for any Zombie fan or horror enthusiast simply because it is a prime example of B-Movie Glory. Great Zombie make-up EFX... A Twilight Zone-esque story about a posesseed television set... Nostalgic 80's synthed out soundtrack... Chainsaw mayhem... Ands lets not forget about a mysterious Goth girl that seduces the teenage boy (and who almost resembles a male crossdresser)...
Sounds groovy if you ask me!
I still cant find a single copy of this film(no dvd produced to date)
