"Everyone here is dead".
31 May 2014 | by lost-in-limboSee all my reviews

Not to be confused with the ever-growing popular TV show "The Walking Dead", this little low-budget horror joint "Walking the Dead" is an atypical, but creative and edgy zombie feature.

A disgraced journalist (a dry, fish-out-of-water performance by Sam Voutas) hiding out in Beijing is given one last chance to revive his career when he stumbles across a letter involving an uncle burying his niece alive. So he travels to that isolated Chinese village to only find its mostly a ghost town, those inhabitants still there are less than friendly and a mother (Angela Tong) frenetically searching for her daughter. But what they discover is quite horrifying, a man known as The Walker - who has the ability to revive the dead and is creating an army.

It's beyond strange (with that "Silent Hill" vibe), but it works delivering on atmosphere by using local colour, shadows and displaying grisly details. The direction can be patchy, and its shocks and jump scares can somewhat cheapen the mood (like the thugs getting picked off). The pacing is low-key, but this only builds upon the unnerving and grim nature of the incidents that are unfolding. Sure it's on the cheap, but there's certain slickness to it and its shot-on-video styling is well handled for most part. Visually speaking it's impressive, but this is due to its choice of location and positioning more than anything else. The countryside village is like a maze, where it isolates and disorientates those trying to escape from the horrors awaiting there. The plot is told through our protagonist recounting to the police what he has encountered. It's rather straight-forward and we are kept in the dark, up until it comes to an unexpected revelation like out of the "Twilight Zone". The script really does take a sudden turn, ridiculous, but surprisingly deft. Little story is hanging from it and because of that it can feel drawn out in its long-winded stalk format, but it's driven by local folklore that simply engages. "The Walker" is an imposing figure, mysterious but brutal decked out in his straw hat and dragging along his axe while controlling his resurrected walking dead. The acting can feel amateurish, but it's not a killer.

Not perfect, but different.
