Review: Being a huge fan of Asian zombie films I have to say I was quite excited to get a chance to watch and review this film. Seeing alot of the other films from The Asian Cult Cinema Collection put out by Synapse Films I knew I was in for something good or at least decent. Well what this film turned out to be for me was a little less than what I was expecting. Basically I was expecting an all out action packed blood bath ,but what I got was a slightly slow paced zombie films with badly done fight scenes and not as much gore as I was hoping for. When I say badly done fight scenes I say this because the choreography was just plain bad and quite sloppy. Even though it was not what I was expecting does not mean I didn't like it because for what this film was it was decent. I wish this film would of had a bigger budget because it this film had alot going for it ,but kinda failed due to bad some casting and lack of funds. Now if they would of made this film to be more like a zombie comedy like the film Biozombie then it would of worked better in my eyes. Overall this was a film with alot of potential and kinda fell flat for me ,but does work for what it is.
