It's been 5 years since the Re-Animates outbreak that wiped out 85% of the world's population. Within a few cities, the Re-Animates have been segregated into "zones" and are policed by the R-Division of the QUASI S.W.A.T. Unit.
The bizarre story takes place in Amsterdam-West, where a virus turns people into bloodthirsty zombies. Although much blood is flowing and many limbs chopped off, there is a lot to laugh at in this bizarre horror comedy.

The dead might be inside, but the boredom sure is out...
"The Dead Inside" boasts 'post-Romero packed with punch' on the DVD front cover. You have to look really long and hard for anything even remotely close to what Romero have accomplished with any of his movies. And paying £10.08 for this movie on Amazon is a rip off, because this movie is downright and blatantly bad.
Everything in this movie just screams low budget and inferior production. The camera-work was questionable and most of the time downright annoying. I don't pay money to see a movie that is shot by a camera operator with Parkinsons disease. The camera-work in "The Dead Inside" was all over the place.
The dialogue was mundane, and delivered without any punch or conviction, which just added fuel to the fire that was characters that had no appeal, no charisma, no dimension and characters that you didn't care about or relate to in any way.
As much as I enjoy zombie movies, then the running zombie aspect of the zombie mythology is just wasted on me. Personally, I am more to the staggering, slow zombies that walk with a gait. And zombies should at the very least look like they are deceased individuals, not just people painted with some grey make-up and splashed with fake blood.
"The Dead Inside" had nothing interesting to offer, nor did it prove interesting in any single way. And as much of a zombie aficionado as I am, then this movie was just a swing and a miss.
Don't get suckered and fooled by the somewhat interesting and appealing DVD cover, because it has nothing to do with the actual movie itself. And the zombies in the movie doesn't even look like on the DVD cover at all. The zombies in the movie were just regular people milling about with bad make-up.
Stay well clear of "The Dead Inside", because there is very little to be had here...
