Office Of The Dead

I’m not exactly sure where i’d place Office of the Dead on the spectrum of horrible zombie films, but it’s probably somewhere between “no-budget” and “film school project.” Of course, just because it’s an amateur production doesn’t necessarily mean it’s bad. But yeah, it’s pretty bad.

I think the filmmakers were going for some kind of Office Space or Harold & Kumar vibe, meaning it’s basically a buddy picture set in a corporate office building. And thanks to a few decent performances by the actors, the lighthearted tone actually came across pretty well. Unfortunately the plot was a total mess!

Apparently a biotech firm was working on software that could take your angry emotions and reprocess them into pleasant thoughts. Things eventually go wrong, and instead they create a zombie. But even though it’s not an infection, somehow it spreads from person to person until a small group of office workers find themselves trapped, fighting for their lives and searching for a cure.

Best Scene: I enjoyed watching zombies get beat down with office supplies and computer equipment. Because, really… even during the zombie apocalypse what else are you going to find in a cubicle?

Worst Scene: Once everyone is safe and holed-up in the security office, things go all Breakfast Club and they start confessing their innermost secrets to each other for some reason.

Asian Massage Parlor: This is one of the few zombie movies i can remember where they actually discover a cure by the end of the film and manage to cure everyone they haven’t already killed!

  1. I’m about to watch this one today. It’s part of an eight pack of Zombie movies which I plan to watch all of them today … if I can sit through them all.

      I think i know exactly which collection you’re talking about! If it’s called Extreme Zombies… beware; some of those are pretty horrible!

      Anyway, enjoy your zombie marathon and have a happy Halloween!

      • Yes, that’s it! I just finished “Santa Claus vs the Zombies” … choke, choke.

        It would have been a decent movie if they cut out all the … oh who am I kidding.

        I like B-Movies and self filmed movies, but this one … they should not have tried to write a story into it.
