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 <>

a cheapie but it do has it moments
12 May 2014 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

This is a Hong Kong flick that has some fame due being a bit of an ode to Romero's Dawn Of The Dead (1978). But let me say that the only reference is the fact that it take place at a shopping mall, end of resemblance.

It's more of a comedy but one with extreme stupid situations. The effects used are also a bit of the cheap kind. The zombies their faces are so stupid, you can easily spot how it was done.

Nevertheless, it do has a few bloody situations. But let me say that most of it is just ridiculous. The so-called sex scene at the toilet will make you laugh as did the end scene when a guy is turning into a zombie he only can talk about the tits of his best friend's girlfriend.

Still, it didn't bore me and there's enough action to keep you attached to the screen. A classic it will never be but among the geeks it's well known.

Gore 1,5/5 Nudity 0/5 Effects 1/5 Story 2,5/5 Comedy 1,5/5
