80’s cheese at it’s best! That’s the only way to describe The Video Dead!
An unlabeled crate from an unknown source is delivered to a house in the woods. The homeowner unwisely accepts the delivery, only to discover it contains a TV set that starts spewing giggling zombies all over the place. When a new family moves into the now-abandoned house, the son discovers the haunted television and is soon told what he needs to do to send the zombies back where they belong. Knowing and doing, however, are two very different things, and the zombies are not likely to go quietly.
My Rating: B-
Interesting Fact: Actor Jack Stellman would get so into his zombie role that he wouldn’t talk to his other cast members, he would instead glare at them from across the room or grunt when they spoke to him. All of the zombies in the film had to audition for their roles by grunting/growling and performing their best zombie walk which were then incorporated into the finished film. Mr. Stellman came into his audition completely silent and in character, staring at the director with his “glare” and only delivering inaudible noises when asked questions. He was cast on the spot.
Honourable Mention for the letter V: Vampires Vs. Zombies

Hmmm… somehow I managed to miss this one in the ’80s, who would have thought! LOL Definitely heading outside the box with this one… (cough, cough) 😉
Obviously I know which team you root for. My post today is in the vampire spirit if you wish to cast your vote… (that’s fascinating about the actor)
