An unlabelled crate from an unknown source is delivered to a house in the woods. The homeowner unwisely accepts the delivery, only to discover it contains a TV set that starts spewing giggling zombies all over the place. When a new family moves into the now-abandoned house, the son discovers the haunted televsion and is soon told what he needs to do to send the zombies back where they belong. Knowing and doing, however, are two very different things, and the zombies are not likely to go quietly. 

"The Video Dead" is your typical very low-budget, straight-to-video 80s horror that promises you a lot of fun with its gruel and goes on to deliver it despite the limitations. There was no denying how amateurish, small-scale and cheap it came off, but the crew and cast (modest performances) acquitted themselves rather well and went on to conjure up some wicked surprises with adept competency. Hey the enthusiastic screenplay / script even throws in some originality, unpredictability and horror film references in to the living dead sub-genre. While giving it a different spin, it didn't cop out on what makes zombie features. Never boring despite its slight narrative and a great sense of place and atmosphere from its remote surroundings.

The make-up FX might look crumby and pasty, but nonetheless quite effective in its gooey aftermath. Some blood is evident, body parts being cut up, but the zombies spend more time strangling or head twisting their victims. The music score while subtle stays quite chilling and fitting. Brainlessly disposable and bright 80s zombie fun.
