Not a scary movie, but still well worth checking out...
10 May 2012 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

"Walking the Dead" is sort of a weird combination of trying to fuse Asian and Western horror together. And the end result was adequate. THe movie is not scary, actually far from it. At best it ranks as a thriller, because there are no scare-moments in the movie, but there is a lot of building up of suspense and working around with the supernatural.

Set in a small Chinese village, where there is something gloomy about. The village is devoid of life, except for a few odd villagers. A Westerner journalist comes to the village to follow up on leads on a story that could be important to his career. He stumbles upon a bewildered Chinese woman who is looking for her missing daughter, hoping to find her before she dies. Gradually, the journalist (and us the viewers) are introduced to the gruesome legend of the Walker who haunts the village, being able to reanimate the dead as his servants.

Despite having a relative small list of cast, "Walking the Dead" was actually enjoyable, and the people did good jobs with their given roles.

This is not a grand special effects festival, but whatever effects are in the movie were well utilized and came off as working well enough. The movie is building on fear and suspense, so having a huge Hollywood CGI fest wasn't really important.

One thing that the movie really had working in its favor was the setting. The village was really nicely put together. There was a sense of foreboding, a sense of isolation and an overwhelming sense of dread lurking about. The village itself was actually coming off as the main core of the story, in my opinion, while the actual storyline was built up around the village.

The ending to the movie was not as you might expect. It was a nice turn of events actually, so whether you like it or not is up for the individual viewer to discern. I will not spoil anything by revealing the ending here. I can say, though, that I personally didn't like what happened at the police station at the end, but I did like the clarity of the entire storyline and situation you were given when the movie came to an end.
