You are on the road to Hell my children.
14 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As we get ready for another Fantastic Fest in Austin and the worldwide release of Lesbian Vampire Killers, we explore the film that won Best Gore at last year's Fest - a Pakistani zombie flick! We won't need to talk about actors, as we have not likely seen any of them, so we will focus on the story. Suffice it to say that three young men and two women lied to their parents to travel to a concert.

Just as you are a fool to leave the highways in Texas and travel the back roads, you need to avoid shortcuts in Pakistan. This Lollywood zombie flick is a throwback to the way zombies are supposed to be - very slow, and munching on brains and guts after a kill. It featured gut munching that would fit well in any cannibal flick.

Of course our travellers don't know that their friend O.J. (Osman Khalid Butt) who was bitten will change. The film just keeps getting freakier and freakier.

The film switches from zombies to Texas Chainsaw Massacre as a slasher in a burka appears. Poor Vicky (Kunwar Ali Roshan); he is now being dismembered and blood is flowing everywhere. Roxy (Rubya Chaudhry) wanders in and is now being chased by the burka-wearing killer, who doesn't have a chainsaw, and has to use a spiked ball on a chain.

That ball sure made a mess of Simon's (Haider Raza) face; now only the girls are left. It appears the local villagers will have lots of meat on the table for a while.

It appears no one will survive these woods.

The gore was good and one hopes for more from Omar Khan
