Movie : Braindead (1982)

Boy meets girl, but has domineering mother, who turns into a zombie. This is an early 80s black comedy directed by Peter Jackson way before any Lord of the Rings, but this is epic in its own special way. Epic gore for sure.

There is a plot though its more a prop for a lot of gore laden action set pieces. The film scores well on "OMG NO!" moments and some genuinely funny dark humour (especially as shown below) though the final half an hour is pretty much wall to wall violent gore and can get a bit tiresome after the umpteenth liquidised zombie. The sheer ridiculousness of the zombie romp takes you through though, like a zombie hand through a head.
