I chose today's film based solely on the fact that it is just over an hour and because I'm coming down with something and feel like death myself. The disc itself is from a cheap 10-film pack which is supposed to be zombie themed movies but for a $5 set I doubt anyone was quality checking the content specificity with these choices. That said, let's dig into today's film!
|Less vampire, more sadpire.|
I really liked Dead Men Walk. I thought it was going to be a very 40's matinee film but it was fun to watch. The pacing is really weird as they squeezed a lot into such a short time. It's essentially death, but I'm alive, Gayle is to be married, now she's sick, a vampire?! etc. etc.
What I appreciated the most with this film was the dialog. It felt like someone reading literature to you. It began and end with semi-poetic verse and there wasn't much in the way of filler, just advancing the story. I think that my biggest complaint with Dead Men Walk would be that there are no roads. It's constantly people running through the woods, in the dark, to get to their location. Elwyn I can write off as he is a vampire, but everyone else must have cat eyes or something.
I give Dead Men Walk 3 copies of Chuck Tingle's Vampire Night Bus Pounds My Butt out of 5:
