The Laughing Dead (1990)

The Laughing Dead is the kind of movie that you need to make a commitment to.

Not long. Like 35 minutes or so, so that you get through the slow stuff like meeting everyone on the vacation bus tour and discover who they are, but trust me, it’s worth it because before all that long, a disgraced priest has done an exorcism that opens the world of the Aztec demons and we’re playing a game with a severed head and brains are being smashed by buses and somehow a kaiju battle ensues.

Yeah, The Laughing Dead has the movie drugs you’re looking for, you just have to act cool and chill for a bit and once everyone straight and boring leaves, we’re all going to get really, really messed up.

Thai born filmmaker Somtow Sucharitkul directed, wrote, produced, scored and acted in this Category 3 film transported by Mexico and man, what a United Nations of wonderment this all is. He also wrote Burial of the Rats, which has this same strange energy.

The humor may fall flat, the plot may not make any sense, but you’re here for wild things. This movie will deliver those. You just need to forgive some things.

You can buy this from Vinegar Syndrome.
