Synopsis
The feature debut of ultra-low-budget horror auteur J.R. Bookwalter, this fast-paced zombie mini-epic is very likely the most expensive movie ever shot on Super-8 film. Playing with the long-established mythos of George A. Romero's Living Dead trilogy, The Dead Next Door was produced with the help of many of the Evil Dead crew: financial backer Sam Raimi is credited as "Master Cylinder" and one of the characters is named after him; Evil Dead co-writer Scott Spiegel plays a role; and some character voices are dubbed by Bruce Campbell. The story centers on the members of the "Zombie Squad" -- an assault team trained in the hunting and extermination of the living dead -- and their mission to track down the scientists who developed a zombie-making virus and find the rumored antidote. Of the many lethal obstacles in their path, the deadliest comes in the form of a religious cult whose leader sees the zombie epidemic as a precursor of Armageddon -- and is hell-bent on expediting it. Very stylish for what is essentially an epic-scale home movie (and gushing with plentiful home-style gore effects), this remains Bookwalter's best effort and contains numerous witty homages to the Romero films which inspired it. ~ Cavett Binion, All Movie Guide

almost unbearable... by fyrekracker November 24, 2006 - 10:33 AM PST

extreme low budget here! Kudos for the effects, but there are only so many mullets that I can take in a movie. This movie may have the worst acting I have ever seen, even in low budget indie movies.Having lived in the Akron area I was amused at some of the locations used that were recognizable.

Yes it is low budget but that actually adds to the flavor. No other zombie movie has ever depicted the humans picketing for the rights to SAVE THE ZOMBIES.
Great special effects and well paced storyline make this one of my favorites
