The Amazing Adventure of The Living Corpse
How cool would it be to have a zombie that doesn't want to eat you, but instead protect you? In July 2012, Taylor got a chance to see his dad again, and lucky for Taylor, his dad came around when he did.
Directing this 88 minute animation/action/fantasy/horror is Justin Paul Ritter
Some of the voice cast is: Michael Villar as The Living Corpse, Emrys Wright as Taylor, Marshal Hilton as Asteroth/Rope Claw, C.J. Baker as Dr. Brainchild Ryan McGivern as Worthless Merk and Conroe Brooks as Markys.
Scared and surrounded by zombies, Taylor cries for help. That help came from someone he never would have expected. Suddenly, the zombies are stopped and there Taylor stands face to face with his new protector, his dead dad. Unfortunately, their reunion doesn't last long because they get split up. Now, dear old dad will do anything to find his son, he'll even go to hell and back.
I don't know about your viewing habits but sometimes I like to live dangerously and do what I call a "blind grab". That's when I throw caution to the wind, and put my entertainment possibility in the hands of fate. All I need is a random stack of titles to grab from, and lady luck by my side. This time I went with... The Amazing Adventure of The Living Corpse, which by title alone sounded awesome and should be full of coolness. Well, Lady luck apparently didn't get my text message about needing her help and I painfully got reminded why you shouldn't gamble with your entertainment.
Turns out, this is an American animated 3D flick that goes on for 88 minutes and never gives you anything of value. It's based off of a comic called The Living Corpse Exhumed by Ken Haeser and Buz Hasson. I don't know how close they stuck to the comic, but as far as the movie goes, I think the writers Ryan Plato and Justin Paul Ritter had a decent idea for the movie. Sadly, it's a mix of a bad playthrough, weak script and crappy animation that quickly shanks this flick and leaves it to die in the gutter cold and alone. Where it should stay... and not bother anyone else.
I just am having trouble finding any redeeming qualities about this film, except that it has a zombie in it and there was some fighting. Yet, even with those two things, the fights scenes aren't all that and the zombie extras (the few there are) looked better than the main character. As for the script, it's ok but so plain and simple that it hurts to listen to and does barely enough to keep the story moving.
Overall, not scary or entertaining, keep your 88 minute and use them for something better.
It's rated R for violence.
