Enjoyable but not terribly original addition to the zombie genre
14 December 2004 | by ivanm-5See all my reviews

This is not one of those eerie Japanese thrillers like "Ringu" but rather a typical zombie flick. If you enjoy films like "Dawn of the Dead" and more specifically "From Dusk Till Dawn" you will undoubtedly enjoy this.

Their is definite Tarantino feel to this production about a heist that goes wrong and the meeting up in an abandoned warehouse. The twist is that the warehouse is full of zombies, inactive at first but - well you can guess the rest. Film buffs will no doubt enjoy the irony of an Asian film taking inspiration from "Reservoir Dogs" which itself was inspired by earlier Asian film.

Miwa Yanagizawa makes a very gory but sexy Zombie Queen and we don't see enough of her - no I'll rephrase that - we don't see her often enough in the film. Otherwise this is an enjoyable but not terribly original addition to the zombie genre.
