'''Braindead''' (1992, also known as ''Dead Alive'') is Creator/PeterJackson's third feature film, a gory comedy in the vein of ''Film/BadTaste'' and ''Film/MeetTheFeebles''. It is about a young man named Lionel whose life takes a turn to the worse when his overbearing mother is bitten by a rat-monkey of Sumatra, infecting her with a strange disease that rapidly turns her into a hungry zombie that starts infecting every unlucky fellow that she comes across. If having a zombie mom wasn't enough of a problem, Lionel also has to deal with his opportunistic uncle Les and hide his deadly secret from his girlfriend Paquita.

It is a {{Squick}}tastic gore fest. Intentionally hilarious in all its splattery glory. That's probably all you need to know.

** Although [[ReturnOfTheLivingDead cremating a zombie isn't always the best idea]].
