Peter Jackson's Braindead is 20 years old and remains one of the goriest and most gruesome movies of all time. The passing of time has not ruined its shock value whatsoever and I regard it as one of the best comedy horror films ever made. Peter Jackson is obviously a prodigy... he was born to make movies and most importantly to his craft, he is a fanboy before he is a director. Suffice to say he leapt into Braindead with a deep affiliation for the genre. The story is about a mother's boy, Lionel, who's mum becomes a zombie after being bitten by a Sumatran Monkey Rat. As she spreads her infection the house is quickly turned into a zombie lair and its up to Lionel and his girlfriend to take down the frenzied flesh eaters. The gore is as extreme as the genre can go and its about as creative and original as you'll ever see. According to various sources Braindead holds the record for goriest film (amount of blood per frame) of all time. That is an honour I would hold in the highest regard if I were Peter Jackson. I hope he returns to this brand of horror some day... I reckon he might as there are rumours that he's keen to make a sequel to his first film, Bad Taste.
