This review of "Born Dead" is based on the free DVD packaged with The Skateboard Mag (#31 - October 2006).

There's hardly a better way to get people stoked on your team and your brand than by giving them a free DVD showcasing the whole deal. If your team has a fixation on monsters (or rather... creatures) and likes to wear various Halloween masks while riding, then the free DVD is even more appropriate.

Creature From the Black Lagoon

It's always nice to get more than you paid for. Born Dead delivers great skating in a variety of cool spots and makes you want to dig up that old monster model you made of the Creature from the Black Lagoon. You know... the one with the glow-in-the-dark pieces. Actually, I've been meaning to pick up the re-release of that little gem (CFTBL). I still remember seeing a double feature of Slithis with a buddy of mine. Damn movie scared the crap out of us kids. anyway...

Filmed in Australia, Arizona, Oregon, Washington and Minnesota, Born Dead offers diversity along with it's energy. And they even have a hook... a gimmick. They bring a full size plywood coffin (mounted on three trucks) and stuff one of their riders inside it as they push it into bowls, pipes and snake runs to see how the occupant will survive. Good fun for one and all.

Grab you skate & monster mask and hit the neighborhood trick-or-treat style. Demand candy for every trick you pull. then go home, crack a beer and watch Born Dead with your homie - and share your damn candy!

The Bottom Line

Remember this is a freebie. So, if a shop offers to sell it to you, tell ‘em to solve this anagram: YUCK FOU. And the same goes for greedy eBay sellers.
