Dead Alive, also known as Braindead, is a 1992 horror comedy film directed by Peter Jackson. It tells the story of a young man whose mother is bitten by a Sumatran rat-monkey and becomes a zombie, leading to a bloody and hilarious carnage. The film is widely regarded as one of the goriest and funniest movies ever made, and a cult classic among horror fans.
But if you want to enjoy Dead Alive to the fullest, you should watch it in 1080p resolution. Why Because 1080p offers more clarity, detail and quality than 720p. Here are some reasons why:
The 1080 and 720 in 1080p and 720p stand for vertical screen resolution, or height, in pixels. The more pixels there are in an image, the clearer it will be[^3^]. A 1080p image has 1920x1080 pixels, while a 720p image has 1280x720 pixels. That means a 1080p image has more than twice as many pixels as a 720p image.
More pixels mean more detail. You can see finer details in the characters, the sets, the props and the special effects. You can appreciate the craftsmanship and creativity that went into making this film. You can also see more gore and splatter, which is part of the charm of this movie.
More pixels also mean better quality. A 1080p image has less compression artifacts, noise and blurring than a 720p image. You can enjoy a smoother and sharper picture, with more vivid colors and contrast. You can also avoid pixelation and aliasing, which can ruin the immersion and realism of the film.
So if you are looking for a fun and gory movie to watch this Halloween, give Dead Alive a try. But make sure you watch it in 1080p resolution, because it will make a huge difference in your viewing experience. Trust me, you won't regret it.
