It Came From Netflix:The Video Dead(1987)

By Eric Polk-
The original idea behind Dollar Bin Horror was reviewing movies that were released on the cheap. Blowing only a George Washington or less to see either a treasure or a clinker has quite the lure for someone on a budget and if there is a living embodiment of this concept, it's 1987's The Video Dead.

Basically, the plot of this movie is a possessed tv shows a zombie film and the zombies come out of said tv to terrorize people. That's it. Nothing more, nothing less. There's no depth, no suspense, nothing except for laughter(washing machine-fu, for one) and a bit of blood. This is more or less a poor man's version of Return of the Living Dead minus Linnea Quigley, a budget, good music, decent acting.......Ugh!
