Dead 7

Dead 7 – 2000 – United States

Two meth dealers murder a deaf homeless kid by shoving him down a mineshaft. He rises as a zombie and kills the dealers and their girlfriends. Also involved is a corrupt cop (played by the director) and the homeless kid’s demented sister named Venus Equinox.

Dead 7 is tacky amateur movie with few redeeming features. The characters run around in the woods, shout, and say “fuck” way too much.  They all behave like morons and everyone is either a despicable scumbag or mentally handicapped. In an especially tasteless moment, one of the meth dealers jerks off to a gory photo of a severed head.

Dead 7 gets its title from its seven murders. The gore effects are crappy and unrealistic. In the silliest example, a character is force fed cocaine until blood pours out of his mouth and eyes. Throughout the movie, a roving handheld camera is used to irritating effect.

In Dead 7’s introduction, a punk rocker with a growling voice summarizes the movie. The movie’s dialogue makes reference to axe murderer Lizzie Borden and actress Karen Black.

Rating: 2/10 Shrunken Heads. During the credits, a song plays called “Don’t Fuck With the Dead” by some bad called The Baseball Immortals.
