Storyline

Hong Kong's answer to George Romero's Dawn Of The Dead. A soft drink tainted with "Iraqi bio-chemicals" has the power to turn people into flesh-eating zombies. Gangsters smuggle it into HK, only to become instant zombie prey. One of the gang escapes with the bottle, but is run over by two young VCD sellers and wannabe petty criminals (Woody Invincible and Crazy Bee) returning to their mall shop in their bosses' car. Trying to revive him, they give him a drink of what they think is Lucosade. With him seemingly dead and unsure of what to do, they bring the corpse back to the mall with them in the boot of their car. They make the mistake of leaving the boot open. And, pretty soon, the mall is crawling with zombies. The odd couple and a bunch of other mall employees have to bond together to try and fight their way out.

a cheapie but it do has it moments
12 May 2014 | by trashgangSee all my reviews

This is a Hong Kong flick that has some fame due being a bit of an ode to Romero's Dawn Of The Dead (1978). But let me say that the only reference is the fact that it take place at a shopping mall, end of resemblance.

It's more of a comedy but one with extreme stupid situations. The effects used are also a bit of the cheap kind. The zombies their faces are so stupid, you can easily spot how it was done.

Nevertheless, it do has a few bloody situations. But let me say that most of it is just ridiculous. The so-called sex scene at the toilet will make you laugh as did the end scene when a guy is turning into a zombie he only can talk about the tits of his best friend's girlfriend.

Still, it didn't bore me and there's enough action to keep you attached to the screen. A classic it will never be but among the geeks it's well known.

Gore 1,5/5 Nudity 0/5 Effects 1/5 Story 2,5/5 Comedy 1,5/5
