‘Hell of the Livinbg Dead’ is an Italian horror film directed by Bruno Mattei (who is credited here as Vincent Dawn). The film is also know by its Italian title ‘Virus – l’inferno dei morti viventi‘, and it was also released as ‘Night of the Zombies‘ in some areas.
This is another ‘zombies caused by toxic leak’ horror film – and the zombies here are caused by a leak at a chemical facility that sees all the staff turn quickly into flesh-eating undead.
An army team is sent in to investigate, and on the way they team up with investigative reporters who are chasing the same story, but soon the outbreak spreads faster than they can imagine.
Overall this is a messy film that tries hard to get a social message across, but it’s hardly a classic of the genre.
