It's the end of the century at a corner of the city in a building riddled with crime - Everyone in the building has turned into zombies. After Jenny's boyfriend is killed in a zombie attack, she faces the challenge of surviving in the face of adversity. In order to stay alive, she struggles with Andy to flee danger.Written by
At 57:05, when Andy and Jenny are about to leave the apartment with the old man, the camera pulls back showing him "wearing" the lower legs of a Caterpillar 5000 Work Loader, better known as the Power Loader from "Aliens" that Ripley uses to fight the queen at the end. It appears as though the foot plates have been removed to allow the actor to wear them with the suspenders he has on and one leg is stamped with "ZOMB 1970MAY19" with a suspicious looking "Umbrella" type logo.

The American Bluray cover art depicts a woman with a bob haircut in a black leather (tactical) outfit akin to Deadpool/Blade, complete with double katana style swords across her back as she stands off against a horde of blood red zombies. There is no scene with this outfit, weapons or character in the movie. See more »
I decided to see this movie based on the title alone....
Went to see this movie with friend because nothing else is on. In a nutshell, the director took the apartment from Dredd, general atmosphere of George Romero movies, some Asian pop-stars, tossed in a blender, and filmed whatever detritus that came out. Fasten your seat belt and prepare for a long ride, because the prologue lasted for a whole hour before the titular zombie fight club starts.
There are some T&A in there, but not enough to justify the ticket price, and not the ones you went in hoping to see (Jessica C for me). My feeling is that the director is familiar with elements from various zombie movies, yet completely missed that zombie movies are always about the human; zombies are forces of nature that creates the survivalist environment which brings out the cruel and selfish tendency within us. Instead we get characters that are just as bland and dumb as the zombies they are fighting. Zombie Battle Royale would be more fitting title for this movie.
The movie has no idea whether it wants to be an action film, body horror, or slap stick comedy. Switching between all three at will. It has all the subtlety of a getaway BMW that is somehow emplaced inside an apartment unit on the top floor, smashing through multiple concrete walls until it's sailing through open air, crashing to the ground with nary a dent. And yes, that scene is in the movie.
