Joe Chien's follow-up to the bafflingly tasteless and salacious Zombie 108 delivers a generous second helping of the same Z-grade trash and splatter.
Just over a decade ago, superhero films were a tiny sub-category in the general science fiction and fantasy branches. Among the fine films opening wide this week in North America is Jean-Marc Vallee's Demolition, which knocked out Jason Gorber (his words). In the near future, a desperate and ever-more controlling UK government attempts to restore a sense of national pride with a New Festival of Britain.
Now, arguably the same could be said about certain Romero works, especially Day of the Dead and Land of the Dead, but even in those movies, the creatures were zombie first (eat the flesh of the living above all else), remaining persona second. Time will tell whether Eisner’s The Crazies is considered a zombie movie or not, despite his explanations and intentions.
My Take: Definitely not a zombie movie, but a movie that runs on a parallel track to the archetypal zombie film.
The Grapes of Death – This French film (review here) concerns some tainted wine that turns people into sore-covered, angry shells of their former selves. If a werewolf got bitten by a zombie, would a silver bullet still kill it if it wasn’t a head shot?

The Inevitable Zombie Apocalypse is your source for daily zombie news and in-depth criticism, commentary and context on all things zombie -- zombie movies, zombie books, zombie games and everything else to do with the walking, running, biting dead. We're having some technical difficulties but look forward to having these resolved as quickly as possible. Die Zombies haben die Weltherrschaft ubernommen, es gibt nur noch wenige Gruppen von Menschen, die gegen die Ubermacht ankampfen. Es gibt zwar ein paar Szene wo mal gut drauf gehalten wird, wie eine Entweidung durch Zombies, aber oftmals wird bei den Kampfszenen zu schnell weggeschnitten, wodurch es unubersichtlich wird und die Kampfe sind auch allgemein schwach wie beim zunachst vielversprechenden Catfight am Ende zu sehen, dort fallen die 2 Cats aufeinander her ohne gro?en Schlagabtauch, so ist die andere schon besiegt, da der Schnitt den eigentlichen Kampf verweigert.
Wer fur B- und C-Drecksschinken aus der Computertonne was ubrig hat, wird wie zuvor in Zombie Apocalypse - The Payback durchaus bedient, es ist absolut ein Film auf untersten Niveau, der es aber schafft zu unterhalten, wo man aber trotzdem zunachst ausharren muss, denn es ist nichts fur den geselligen Abend, dafur nimmt sich der Steifen absolut zu ernst und ist nicht peinlich genug, es gibt nicht einen Witz, sondern es ist Nerddreck sondergleichen!
Meanwhile, the teenagers scouts Ben Goudy and Carter Grant decide to camp for the last time since they are too old to be scouts.
Andy On and Jessica C are the attractive, if helpless, leads who - eventually - find themselves in an apocalyptic underground arena of the undead after escaping an overrun apartment block. They occasionally happened, and occasionally they were good, and occasionally they were bad. But construction work on the site of an old church in south London releases a centuries-old plague that turns its victims into flesh-hungry ghouls whose bite or scratch passes the contagion - a supernatural virus which has the power to revive the dead - on to others.'The Death' soon sweeps across London and the whole country descends into chaos. The Crazies had some of its infected do nothing more than just mill about aimlessly, while others actively sought revenge on those they perceived to have wronged them.
This feels like a cheap knockoff of the original version of The Crazies (itself incredibly obscure) and manages to avoid seeming like a zombie film at all.
Director Bruce McDonald has retained everything necessary to make this look and feel like a zombie film and either tweaked or cut everything else to give it a truly bizarre and original twist. You can’t deny Zombieland, and they are the same as 28 Days Later, and they are almost identical to The Crazies.

Die Rollen Gut und Bose sind dabei sehr hohl verteilt, so wie auch die Darsteller auf Laien Niveau stumperhaft agieren. Man muss schon der Story verfolgen um den Film uberhaupt was abzugewinnen, derjenige bekommt immerhin eine schrage Handlungsverzwitterung aus Mad Max und Zombieapokalypse.
The problem is that they do not want to harm the feelings of their friend Augie Foster and the Scout Leader Rogers. But as was the problem last time round, Chien reduces character and narrative to a procession of boobs, blood and depravity that suggests he long ago fell foul of the zombie hordes himself.Zombie 108 was one of those unforgettable viewing experiences.
When a drastic attempt to eradicate the outbreak at source fails, the plague spreads quickly to mainland Europe and then across the rest of the world.Told through a series of interconnected eyewitness narratives - text messages, e-mails, blogs, letters, diaries and transcripts - this is an epic story of a world plunged into chaos as the dead battle the living for total domination.
The characters, setting and plot are different on the surface, but all follow the broad outline closely. They use weapons, open doors, they work together to kill the unaffected, attempt to hide their afflictions and can still talk. They aren’t dead (minor point) and still retain a number of critical faculties (larger point). Eigentlich ist die Handlung aber gar nicht so schlecht, etwas spannender hatte es nur sein konnen.
They have a flat tire after hitting a deer on the road and Carter’s sister Kendall Grant, her boyfriend and her friend Chloe stop their Jeep to see whether they need a ride. A seemingly simple story of zombies descending on a Taipei apartment block, it proved so consistently vile, exploitative, misogynistic and tasteless that you simply couldn't look away.
It did contain some very zombie-movie like themes and ideas, and the infected were somewhat zombie-like, but it wasn’t a zombie movie. For reference, here’s a look at five movies that utilize zombie-like ideas and creatures, yet alter the zombie mythos in fundamental ways.
Well, they also fly planes, use guns and melee weapons, coordinate attacks and cut phone lines. The facility gets locked down, Waterston tries to rescue his wife from the murderous, scabby bad guys, etc. I’ve got a full review coming Friday, but what you need to know is these zombies are technically alive, but they are all compelled to act in a largely mindless fashion, seeking only to infect others with their weird virus and to kill.
Dazu gelbliche C-Optik die keine Atmosphare zulasst und garniert mit superbillige CGI Explosionen.
With each new scene the film managed to outdo itself, presenting even more degrading sequences of scantily clad women being manhandled by rabid corpses, and doing so with such energy and lightheartedness that it must be assumed we were supposed to find it funny. Again, these infected retain everything human except the part about not killing anyone who doesn’t have the same bacterial infection you do.
Interestingly this film feels like a bridge between Night of the Living Dead and Dawn of the Dead in many ways – some of the characters, the pacing and the look of it, for example. No car driving or gun wielding here, just lots of dazed looking people wandering around and doing each other ill. I admit, at least a couple of these films challenge my definition of zombies (set out here and here) and it seems like if some are included, all should be (or vice versa).
Zudem kann der treibender Endzeitsoundtrack noch bei Laune halten, der von mir mit 9 Punkte in der Zwischenwertung quittiert wird.


When they drive through the town, they do not see a living soul and they decide to visit a night-club since the bouncer is not at the door. They discover that people have turned into zombies and they team-up with Ben’s recent acquaintance Denise Russo, who is bartender in the nightclub, and Augie that was left alone at the camp and came to the town.
Not so that I could hate-watch it, but rather out of genuine fascination to see how he could top the carnival of chaos that had come before.
Somewhere along the line, Chien's sequel changed track and became Zombie Fight Club, which had its world premiere at PiFan last week, but the film clearly exists within the same world as his previous absurd opus.Zombie Fight Club opens in a ravaged near-future Taipei. The city is in the midst of a full-on zombie holocaust, and all social structures appear to be on the brink of collapse.
Only the heroic Andy (Andy On) seems hesitant, and before long the raid has gone sour and his team is dead. Eventually, however, Andy and Jenny join forces and they manage to escape from the building, only to be rendered unconscious and awake in an underground dungeon.
And finally, a solid 75 minutes into the film, our heroes are thrown into a gladiatorial arena and forced to fight for their lives against specially groomed undead opponents.
Ng also gets a brief appearance in front of the camera in the film's final third, and seeing Ng and On go at each other in a full-on fight to the death is one of the film's few genuine pleasures. Admittedly almost every female character on screen has been deliberately cast for her looks rather than talent, and is perpetually fetishised by both the camera and her co-stars, but it is a step away from the zombie rape sequences that featured in Zombie 108's most depraved moments.
In fact the only female character not presented as attractive becomes the butt of a joke for precisely that reason.It is in fact Jessica C's Jenny who is the closest the film has to a central protagonist, and the young model-turned-actress certainly gives it her all. Under Chien's direction, however, Jessica is given little more to do in the film's first half than scream and cower, only to make a remarkable volte face into a capable zombie killer when thrown into the ring (complete with a new haircut and alarmingly small sweatpants). The odds were stacked against any actress hoping to survive a Joe Chien film with their dignity intact, but Miss Cambensy gives it her best shot.All those (myself included) who continue to clamour for Andy On to be given more lead roles, will look at Zombie Fight Club and shake their heads. I have no doubt the film was a laugh riot to make, but that simply doesn't translate onto the screen. From the inexplicable flip-flopping between English and Mandarin, to the lopsided two-act structure, to the cartoonish characterisation and shameless objectification of women (although to be honest, Andy and Phil's abs get plenty of screen time too), Zombie Fight Club just isn't going to cut it.
Andy On and many others involved can and should be producing far better work than this, but that isn't going to happen until they start making more responsible career choices.This sentiment applies to Joe Chien too.
I honestly believe that Chien has the know-how and talent to make far better movies than Zombie Fight Club. While zombie purists may object to the use of CGI make-up for a large proportion of the effects, the film is pretty slickly handled on a technical level. In many ways, Chien feels like the petulant younger brother of Michael Bay, infatuated by gorgeous women, grand scale spectacle and high octane thrills. Chien has nothing like Bay's budgets to play with, but the cinematic sensibility is remarkably similar. My only hope is that Chien has aspirations that go beyond mere titillation and base humour shock tactics, because if he does set his sights higher, there's a chance he can rise out of the gutter and start making genuinely exciting genre films.Originally reviewed at PiFan in July 2014, Zombie Fight Club opens theatrically in Hong Kong today, 23 October 2014.
