Braindead (1992) In 1957, a zoologist traps a rare Sumatran rat-monkey on Skull Island and brings it back to New Zealand with the locals hot on his trail. Later, a young man falls in love and takes the young woman to the zoo. His overbearing and disapproving mother follows them and gets bitten by the rat-monkey. The monkey's bite turns her into a zombie, and her doting son has to keep her and the others she's bitten tranquilized in the basement while trying to preserve his love life.

Movie Trivia:
  • During the lawnmower scene, movie blood was pumped at five gallons per second.
  • The song played on the organ as the mourners wait to enter the church (prior to the embalming scene) is none other than Sodomy from Peter Jackson's previous film Meet the Feebles (1989).
  • Director Cameo: [Peter Jackson] Undertaker's assistant.
  • The movie was finished under budget with NZ$45,000 remaining. Peter Jackson used it to spend two days shooting the park scene with Lionel and the baby Selwyn. He has gone on to say that it is his favorite scene.
  • The rental in Sweden (and probably other countries as well) came with supplemental vomit bags.
