A somewhat self-aware zombie takes it upon himself to keep the rest of the walking dead at bay.
Based on the Dynamite Publishing comic series 'The Living Corpse: Exhumed, 'The Living Corpse is a rotting mass of bone and tissue. Moldy clothes hang on the ghastly frame of this impossible visage of death. Gnarled teeth gnash on a dinner of brains and blood - nutrition for what by all accounts is your typical 'zombie'. But this monster is different than your typical mindless, corpse- devouring skeletons. This monster has a soul.
Through monasteries and churches long forgotten and tunnels and catacombs never seen by mortal man, The Living Corpse searches for clues to the whereabouts of his son, Taylor, the only survivor of a zombie attack led by The Living Corpse himself.
Decades pass as The Living Corpse becomes a tool of the underworld, dispatching all manners of horrible creatures in all corners of the globe while constantly keeping up hope that his child is out there, somewhere in the terrible world. Will he find his son? Will his son forgive him? What price will be paid? All will be answered as we watch The Amazing Adventures of The Living Corpse!
The movie is based on the underground graphic novel hit “The Amazing Adventures of the Living Corpse” from Dynamite Entertainment Comics. Produced by Shoreline Entertainment, The Amazing Adventures of the Living Corpse took three years to animate, and was rendered in state-of-the-art RealD 3D. My screener copy was not in 3D so I can’t comment on that aspect of the movie.
If you enjoy graphic novels in general, then you will definitely want to check this movie out. There is a little humor, but this is an action/horror drama with a bittersweet ending. Corpse is a great tormented protagonist that walks a thin line between who he was and what he has become.
