(at around 1h 10 mins) In the scene where Ash killed the maniac hitting him with a stone, she isn't wearing her Allah locket (which she kept wearing throughout). Then she finds the murder weapon and still she isn't wearing it, but when she returns to his dead body she's wearing her locket again. See more »

indeed the bloodiest Pakistanese flick
2 August 2012 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

For once the advert on the sleeve of the DVD is correct, the bloodiest flick coming out of Pakistan. I enjoyed it from the beginning until the end. Even as it is spoken in Pakistanese and here and there some English it was watchable.

The story of course we have seen a thousand times. 5 friends want to go to a concert without the agreement of their parents but they never arrive at the concert. They arrive in zombieland and not only that, a creepy killer is also on the lose.

I can't say anything negative about Zibahkhana which in fact means 'slaughterhouse'. The acting was rather good, editing was okay. naturally the director looked to the classic horrors to know what to do. It worked out fine. Maybe it's a bit funny to see the deranged killer walking in a burkha. But why you kept looking is the use of some nasty gory shots. It's strange to see for a conservative country that such kind of flick could be made. Guess it was banned over there.

It do has a proper release nowadays all over Europe with subtitles in a few languages. A bit of a no-brainer but recommended for the horror buffs and even the gorehounds.
