Storyline

Hong Kong's answer to George Romero's Dawn Of The Dead. A soft drink tainted with bio-chemicals has the power to turn people into flesh-eating zombies. A man drinks from the bottle, and wanders into the night. As two young VCD sellers (Woody Invincible and Crazy Bee) from a local mall are returning to the mall with their bosses' car, they hit the man. Unsure of what to do, they bring the man back to the mall with them. The mall closes, and soon there are zombies everywhere! A small group of mall employees must bond together to try and fight their way out. Written by jon/dica <dica@massivemag.com>

The Undead and a whole lotta fun!!
21 June 2002 | by (Queens, NY) – See all my reviews

Having recently gotten into the asian horror genre, I finally had a chance to watch this movie. Bio Zombie is original in the way it blends comedy, horror, action.....and it works!!

I really liked the transition the film. When you meet Woody Invincible and Crazy Bee, they are far from winning any moral awards. This provides so much humor especially their "tough" guy personas, so you naturally take a liking to the two. Follow that with crossing paths with a couple of gals including hottie babe Rolls, and you have really funny moments!! The way director Wilson Yip progresses the story, you find out about the characters and then he adds the deadly biochemical plot which takes the film to another level. It's not a horror film having you shut your eyes or watch through the cracks of your fingers, but you find yourself drawn into the story following the plight of our unlikely heroes.

VERY good chemistry between the cast. Jordan Lee (Woody) and Sam Lee (Bee) really seem like two buddies who get into all sort of trouble. Their personalities, facial expressions, mannerisms are all assets to their respective characters. Angela Tong Ying-Ying (Rolls) is good as well and flaunts her sex appeal very well! The bathroom scenes with her and Woody are hilarious! Even the Sushi guy plays a vital part!

Credit goes to Yip for giving a shopping mall a very unique and creepy look due to great cinematography. As more and more zombies appear, the twist from comedic entertainment shifts to "struggle to survive" entertainment. The great thing is this film doesn't take itself too seriously and it looks like they had a lot of fun shooting this film. Trust me, you'll have fun seeing it too.
