Sam Raimi is responsible for a lot of great things, one of the most important being his decision to bankroll THE DEAD NEXT DOOR. Anonymously produced by Raimi under the name "The Master Cylinder" and crafted with love by gore-prodigy J.R. Bookwalter, this is the greatest zombie chunk-blower to ever be lensed with a Super-8 camera in Akron, OH. Flesh-starved puppets! More horror homages in 80 minutes than in Joe Dante's entire career! An uncredited dubbing job courtesy of Deadite-destroyer Bruce Campbell! Watching this movie is like eating fourteen bowls of Lucky Charms doused with Pepsi instead of milk and then staying up for three days while daydreaming about being a member of a mercenary team called The Zombie Squad. And you thought that Akron was only good for birthing Devo.
