Before Lord of The Rings, There Was Dead Alive
While most people associate Peter Jackson with The Lord of the Rings trilogy, any zombie fan worth his salt knew of Jackson well before his directorial adventures with Bilbo, Frodo, and Sam. Jackson was recognized early in his career for insanely gory horror films like Bad Taste and Dead Alive (also known as Braindead). Considered by many to be the one of the goriest zombie films ever made, Jackson’s imagination and flare for the unusual help separate Dead Alive from other run of the mill horror movies, and make for an unforgettable viewing experience. Don’t believe me? Check out AskMen.com’s Top Ten Zombie Movies article, where author James Bassil ranks Dead Alive at the top of the list. Also worth noting is the fact that Bassil chose the remake of Dawn of the Dead over the original, which doesn't make the list at all.
