Trailer Park: Braindead (aka Dead Alive) Trailer

This is a trailer that I have never seen before. It is a British trailer (I think) and it is really funny.

I got my first job when I was 16 years old. A friend of mine started working at the local Jewel-Osco, which is a grocery store chain in the Chicago land area. I knew that I was going to need money if I wanted to go out or buy something, so I put in an application and was hired shortly thereafter.

A week after being hired I got my first ever paycheck (We got paid weekly which was a plus.) I went home and my mother asked me what I wanted to do with this check. I said that I wanted to go to Best Buy and pick out a movie on VHS to buy.

So she took me to Best Buy and I walked around for a bit before setting my eyes on Dead Alive (Braindead in the rest of the world.) The cover art was striking: A woman with her mouth open, but also pulling her open lips apart from the sides to reveal a small skull. The cover art made no sense, but it was a film that I had to have.

When I watched it that weekend I was floored. The film was fantastic. The comedy, the camera work, the gore. Oh my God, the gore. I fell in love with the film on my first viewing and I hope and pray that one day we will get a special edition of this film as well as Jackson's other works.
