Toxic Avenger (cameo)

review by
Mike Haberfelner

After two introductions, one by Troma's Lloyd Kaufman with a little help from the Toxic Avenger, the other by Shawn C. Phillips and Kyle Rappaport playing out a zombie miniature, we're treated to a handful of stories about the undead hosted by voluptuous Dr. Boobenstein (Rebecca Rinehart):

  • District Dead: A paranormal investigator, doing a piece about a haunted wood that once has been the body dumping ground for the mob, finds himself out of his depth when he faces zombies. And when the zombies take over the city, he loses everything worth living for, including his loved ones ...
  • They Approach: Young Bree (Alexandra Foster) sees dead people in her backyard, just standing still but whenever she looks away they come closer - whom nobody else seems to be able to see. Which is too bad, because she's 100% on the money.
  • Killer Brainiac: Wannabe reviewers Kyle Rappaport and Lisa review a slasher movie based on a murderous legend - and eventually that legend takes its murderous revenge on them ...
  • Love Letters from the Dead: A grieving widower finds a love letter from his dead wife on her grave who has apparently written it from beyond death. He decides to write back, and after they exchange letters for a while that way, he decides to bring her back from the lang of the dead - and return she does, if not quite in the shape or form he would have prefered ...
  • They're Coming to Get You: Brothers Rick (Victor Gaspar) and Lee (Gary Gaspar) have to come to terms with the boredom of the zombie apocalypse - which is basically mostly hanging out where it's safe and eventually go out to kill a few zombies - until a girl, Barbara (Barbara Blair), stumbles upon their abode, demands shelter - and changes their life beyond recognition ...

So ok, Faces of the Dead might not be the most polished anthology movie ever - but if you're into low budget indie zombie (in the broader meaning of the term) flicks, then there's plenty to like here, as the film shows nothing if not the diversity of the genre, goes for more than just being a cheapo Walking Dead knock-off (with the series being a knock-off to begin with) but really covers everything from the familiar post apocalypse tale to spooker to romance even, done with various degress of seriousness, and some of the segments hitting their marks better than others, but all done with obvious love for the genre, a love that's really infectuous. And the mix really ensures that whatever flavour of horror's your thing, you'll find at least something you'll love - and will probably enjoy the rest of the ride as well.
