a flick with a history
2 August 2012 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

A vampire flick coming from Pakistan, go figure that one out. Zinda Laash did had a reputation. This flick was supposed to be lost forever but as with so many lost flick suddenly someone popped up with a bad copy. It's now restored and is in fact watchable. On the other hand while being screened at movie theaters a woman got a heart attack so it really became a well sought flick.

It's loosely based on Bram Stoker's story, it do has a girl being bitten by Dracula and it do has the famous sentence about the children of the night but that's it. typical for those kind of flicks it do has a few songs in it were they do dance on. There's no blood to mention, well, maybe one shot where the girl do has blood running from her mouth but it's done really cheesy. It's just added with make-up.

It takes around 100 minutes and that's too long for such a lame flick. If you want to see how Pakistan made a horror then this is a perfect example. You will see how they do things to avoid blood and nudity. And the acting was really unbelievable bad. Just watch the fighting at the end, baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaad acting. And also see the audio equipment making shadows on the wall. Only for the geeks of bad flicks. But coming from Pakistan worth entering your collection just for the sake to say, I have a Pakistanese flick, although there are better ones.
