The Dead Next Door is a 1989 horror movie that tells the story of a group of heroic soldiers who fight to save humanity from a devastating zombie outbreak in America. The movie is directed by J.R. Bookwalter and features a cast of relatively unknown actors, including Pete Ferry, Bogdan Pecic, and Michael Grossi, among others. The story takes place in a post-apocalyptic world where zombies roam the streets, and humanity is on the verge of extinction. In this desperate situation, a group of elite soldiers, known as the Zombie Squad, is formed to combat the zombie menace and save the world from total annihilation.

The movie starts with a prologue, where a young girl gets killed by a zombie, and her mother is infected as well. The mother becomes a patient at a secret research facility, where scientists are working to develop a cure for the zombie virus.

The Zombie Squad, led by Raimi (played by Pete Ferry), is called into action to protect the scientists and their research. Raimi and his team are highly skilled and experienced soldiers who have been trained to fight zombies and survive in harsh conditions.

The team faces several challenges in their mission, including a group of fanatics who believe that zombies are the next step in human evolution and should be allowed to take over the world. Raimi and his team also have to deal with a traitor within their ranks who is working with the fanatics.

As the story progresses, the Zombie Squad faces more obstacles, and the situation becomes more dire. The team has to raid a zombie-infested mansion to rescue the scientists, and in doing so, they discover a shocking secret that could change the course of the zombie outbreak.

The Dead Next Door features some impressive special effects and makeup, considering its low budget. It also has an atmospheric and gritty look that adds to the suspense and horror elements of the movie. The action scenes are well choreographed and executed, and the movie manages to create tension and excitement throughout.

The movie is not without its flaws, though. The acting is at times wooden and unconvincing, and the storyline is somewhat predictable. However, these shortcomings do not detract significantly from the overall experience of watching the movie.

In conclusion, The Dead Next Door is an entertaining and thrilling zombie movie that will appeal to horror fans looking for a low budget, indie-style film. It may not be a masterpiece, but it certainly delivers on its promise of providing a fun, action-packed ride through a zombie-infested world.

The Dead Next Door is a 1989 horror movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 24 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.0.
