Directed by Scott Thomas
Starring Dale Midkiff David Chisum
Kevin J. O\'Connor
An instant classic that's up there with "Dog Soldiers" for originality, "Flight of the Living Dead" deserved much more than a direct-to-video release. It just goes to show that sometimes great horror does go straight to DVD. It was one of the best zombie films of 2007, which is saying quite a bit in a year that saw "28 Weeks Later".
The concept is simple, but during the first 45 minutes of the film I didn't think they were going to pull it off right. A team of renegade scientists are transporting a body that has been reanimated via a gigantic commercial flight. An armed guard stands watch over the corpse in the cargo hold.
There's also a convict (Kevin O'Connor) being transported cross country as well. He manages to disappear on the flight while going to the bathroom. Both the officer assigned to transport him (Davis Chisum) and an air marshal head down to the cargo hold looking for him, and of course stumble across the reanimated corpse down there. The cast is full of unknowns, although fans of "Pet Sematary" will get a kick out of seeing Dale Midkiff in a movie again.
The first half of the film is a bit slow, and you know what the plot will inevitably bring about: the resurrected corpse and a thoroughly infected aircraft. After about 50 minutes the film kicks into high gear, and the last half are what make the ride worthwhile.
When anarchy does strike on the plane it actually is quite scary. One obvious "elephant in the living room" element to this film is what is clearly a subconscious 911 connection. Despite the fact that zombies are taking over the aircraft, something similar happened on Sept. 11, 2001. This film bears more than a passing resemblance to the serious Paul Greengrass 2006 film "United 93." Like that film, it takes place more or less in "real time". Unlike that film, some people survive at the end.
Director Scott Thomas demonstrates a real understanding of suspense and horror with his debut in the horror genre. This film also bears a lot of resemblance to "Dog Soldiers" – another little horror movie that made waves on video before launching the career of its director, who of course went on to make "Descent."

Posted by Casey on August 11, 2008You failed to mention an obvious screw-up in the film: The Pentagon is NOT in Washington D.C. like the caption says. It's in Arlington, Virginia.

But perhaps you still have questions. Questions like, "Is 2013 really going to be the best year in the history of the show?" "What does Matt Smith think about the script for this fall's 50th anniversary special?" And "Who are Smith and Jenna Louise-Coleman's dream guest stars?"

Posted by Nike Air Jordan Fusion Pas Cher on November 27, 2013After this came a most entertaining Gotipua presentation by young boys of Nakshatra Gurukul, who, after all the Bandha Nrutya display, rose to the occasion to oblige a fan's request with an unrehearsed Odiya song "Dekho go Radha Madhavi Chali". True to the thoroughness with which Mahagami undertakes each venture, it was heartening to see young journalists from various dailies who attended the Art Writing event and persons like Prasenajit, Shyamal Ingle, Asha Deshpande spoke of their early impressions, some of them writing and reading out what had been written. While senior journalists talked about their experiences, and aspects of writing aspirants need to pay attention to, young journalist Ranjana from Mumbai spoke with commitment on the need to change ways of writing on art - so as to attract young people to this discipline. One would have liked more active interventions from the young aspirants, still timid in voicing their innermost thoughts. But most encouraging were management personnel from dailies like Mr. Pande of Divya Marathi, and Ramesh Bhonsle of Dainik Lokpatra who readily came forward in support of art coverage. Grooming writers for art events is yet another of Mahagami's efforts at working to provide the right support structure for dance and music. It was also interesting to see what Mahagami had designed as video material, using software, for dance education This is an institution about whose serious work so little is known outside. Mahagami should be strengthened and supported by Cultural Affairs Ministry grants, which so far have eluded this institution. Sad!In the current scenario, every Padma Award list or announcement of recipients of State and Central Akademi honours gets a contention-ridden reception. The recent announcement of Sangeet Natak Akademi Awards for the year 2012 (which will be conferred at a ceremony and festival in 2013), however, has generated a debate in the classical dance world quite different from the usual question of whether the recipients are deserving enough. Eminent Kathak dancer Aditi Mangaldas was selected for the SNA Award in the category of Creative and Experimental Dance. Many people, says the dancer, congratulated her thinking she had been recognised in the Kathak category. This indeed is the point. Aditi, a disciple of Gurus Kumudini Lakhia and Birju Maharaj, decided to decline the honour as she felt accepting an award in a category other than Kathak would amount to "negating" her entire approach to classical dance and her life's search so far.
