2007
Dir. Scott Thomas

This movie is hilarious. Director Scott Thomas has taken George A. Romero’s zombie franchise to ‘new heights’ with this tongue-in-cheek gore filled horror set 30,000 feet above sea level.



The fun begins when a trio of mad scientists on the run from the CIA get aboard a passenger flight from Los Angeles to Paris carrying with them a coffin containing a colleague infected with a strange virus. All hell breaks loose however when the flight crosses a violent thunderstorm, the turbulence breaking open the coffin and unleashing the colleague, who is now a flesh eating zombie who doesn’t want the chicken or the fish.

What I love best about this film is the vast amount of gore. As the zombie gets loose and eats/infects each passenger one by one, there’s some great scenes of exploding heads, flesh being ripped from the bone, eyeballs popping out and beheadings to rival a medieval battlefield. There’s even a great ensemble of characters on this flight, all the clichés you would expect such as a cop transporting a dangerous prisoner, a nun, a cheating couple, a sports personality, an air Marshall and even the pilot is on his last flight before he retires and visits the grandkids up in Peaceful Lake or wherever.

There’s some absolute lunacy in some parts, as in the part where the cop creates a bomb, yes a bomb, and throws it into a cargo infested with zombies, and miraculously doesn’t destroy the plane. There’s also a whole lot of shooting going on in the cabin, and somehow nobody manages to hit a window or pierce the walls and kill everybody.

All in all however, if you’re looking for a tongue in cheek horror you can sit back with a bowl of popcorn and laugh at whilst still being entertained, this is up there. Id definitely say that horror fans looking for a guts and glory zombie flick that’s more concerned with action than scares should definitely give Flight Of The Living Dead a look…
