Bio Zombie

Bio Zombie


A chemical infested soft drink turns people into flesh-eating zombies. Soon a whole shopping mall is full of the walking dead. Bit like Brent Cross on a Monday morning


Hong Kong is best known for martial arts action movies and Manga animation but when it does produce a horror film, it is definitely going to be outside the western mainstream, even if, in this case, there is a nod to zombie-meister George A Romero's Dawn Of The Dead.

A tainted soft drink (called Chemical Weapon, arf!) creates the first zombies who then go on to infect others in a shopping mall where only a handful of young employees, led by the curiously named Woody Invincible (Jordan Chan) and Crazy Bee (Lee Chan-Sam), can stop them.

Basic but irreverent, gloriously silly gore that’s genuinely enjoyable and cleverly filmed - midway through a computer game screen appears over the action. Occasionally Bio Zombie is very Bill & Ted, as our teenage heroes battle the blotchy, peeling skin legions not quite taking their perilous situation seriously. All the same, there are a couple of flesh eating scenes that will test your appetite.
