In Dead Heat (1988), Treat Williams and Joe Piscopo fill the screen with their big, big faces while playing out the comic story of a zombie cop the way a high-school quartet noodles out a top-of-the-line second-rate jazz composition!
This film came on the tail end of the 1980s zombie explosion (my, that sounds messy), which included Day of the Dead (1985), The Return of the Living Dead (1985), Night of the Creeps (1986), Evil Dead II (1987).
Deborah M. Staab usually writes about 400 words and then has a cup of coffee. Her Cine-meh House is a regular series of movie commentaries. The pithy musing focus on old, forgotten, sometimes really bad movies from the 1980s, a time when she and her brother watched many a film while their Dad snoozed in the aisle seat.
