Before now we've seen zombies in cities and the countryside, apartment buildings and houses, above and below ground, in office buildings and malls. I've even seen zombies driving cars and attending proms. Now, with the advent of the movie Flight of the Living Dead: Outbreak On A Plane, zombie fanatics can enjoy an outbreak on a plane. Let's admit it - zombies will always beat snakes!
The plot is basic - evil scientists have tinkered with the malaria virus and created something that reanimates dead tissue. Their research is illegal, and when the hounds of the government begin nipping at their heels, they attempt to smuggle their research out of the country…on a plane. Once the experiment gets loose, the fight for survival begins.
The movie opens with introducing the various characters that had the misfortune of being on this particular flight. Some may find this slow, tedious, and boring. I found it to be useful information. If I did not know the characters, how would I determine which ones I wanted to get eaten, and which ones I hoped lived?
Once the action begins and the viewer gets past the amazing bullet-proof and bomb-proof hull of the plane, this adventure turns into non-stop fun and comedic horror. The zombies are of the fast variety, but the kill scenes are truly inventive, and there is something claustrophobic about the survivors trying to escape death (and undeath) in an extremely confined space. How would you survive when there was nowhere to run? The dialog contains several great one-liners, and I would highly suggest keeping an eye out for the nun, the poor fellow who can’t get out of his seat, and the old lady who lost her dentures. Now everyone, in the words of your stewardesses for this flight into the macabre, “Please take your seats!”
