CIA Anent Harry is bitten by a man who was part of a deadly experiment involving the ability to withstand pain. The bacterium has a virus, causing the victim to become a zombie. Upon Harry's arrival in Hong Kong, after rejection from his ex-girlfriend, the virus begins to take effect. He kills a call girl and is arrested after a gang fight. When he is in prison, Harry transforms into a Zombie King and transforms nearly an entire Triad gang into his personal horde. Soon, the police department becomes a House of the Dead. It's up to a police officer named Marco, Harry's ex, and a Triad member named Cheap to stop them before it's too late. Written by
Imagine "Night of the Living Dead" with a comic twist....that works.
It may have been a so-so horror flick, except for Sam Lee who had me laughing in almost every scene he was in.
The movie starts with an experiment, to produce super-human's by injecting a bacterium into the blood stream, gone bad. The patient ends up on the cutting room floor, but not before biting our agent.....who heads off to Hong Kong. This is in the first couple minutes, then there is the character development. Sam Lee who is a member of the local triad. Steven Fung who is a policeman assigned to a rural station, his girlfriend, her sister.....who is the ex-girlfriend of Benny Lai (the infected agent).
Most of the action takes place in the police station. Police round up the gang members who are fighting with Benny Lai and place them in jail. There's some laughs and gore up to this point, but here the movie starts rolling. Sam Lee and the gang are in a connecting cell to the agent, who is doing a Night of the Living Dead imitation on his cell mates.
Those bitten or injured also turn into zombie like creatures. Some of the funniest scenes are of Sam Lee pretending he is one of the zombie's. The movie isn't without faults. Anyone who's ever seen Night of the Living Dead knows you shoot them in the head.....destroy the brain. No matter how loud or often I shouted, no one listened. A movie to watch for laughs and easy viewing. Not for anyone who is bothered by a lower budgeted horror films special effects.
