4 Could you finish Braindead?
I'm starting it and I want a clearer idea of what I'm up against. Is it really a cheese-fest or all too realistic? And could YOU finish it?...

It's one of those low-budget B horror movies, where you would expect there to be bad acting, which it has, bad special effects, which not exactly right, because for this film, the special effects were astounding.
If you must have any indication of just how laughably crazy the violence in Braindead is, check out the movie's signature scene, where Lionel takes on a room filled with zombies armed with a lawnmower.
