The Dead Next Door is a 1989 horror film directed by J. R. Bookwalter. A specially trained group of zombies has been set loose by the United States government. The zombies are to hunt and kill the scores of undead who have been infected by a virus invented by a mad scientist, Dr. Moulsen (Bogdan Pecic). The doctor's virus has turned innocent people into crazed blood-thirsty monsters. The government's team of zombies is on a mission to search for the scientist and find the antidote to the disease. A crazy cult tries to thwart the efforts of the trained zombies. They believe that the virus and the zombies are part of the apocalypse and eagerly await the end of the world. Rami (Pete Ferry) and his team must race against time and the zombie loving cult to stop Dr. Moulsen and the spread of the horrible virus before it is too late.
