Lionsgate delivers another great title - Undead or Alive, but, as the subtitle states at the beginning of the film, this is a Zombedy. A zombie flick set in the old wild west with a well rounded mixture of comedy and gruesome brain eating moments. What happens when you mix an american native indian curse, an awol soldier, a dumb cowboy and a female native indian brought up in New York? Some very funny zombie moments and an unconventional cowboy film! For the small budget for this film, the filmmakers have produced the look of a bigger budget title and this is carried over into the DVD with a fantastic sharp picture and soundtrack that you'd expect from films with 10 times the money. The director's commentary actually also features the lead characters which lowers the tone of the discussions, but is much more light hearted than if the director had been on his own. The two small features are welcome editions to this DVD version, providing some interesting background information on the production and behind the scenes footage. The DVD itself is presented very well - in particular the DVD menu is very well made and introduces the tone of the movie. Finally, don't turn off the film once the credits start rolling as there are some outtake moments that will keep you laughing to the end.
