Chew On (your brain) The Trailer for Zombie Fight Club

No comments: Links to this post

Your first rule is don't talk about the Fight Club, that's The Zombie Fight Club most of all you must abide to rule two watch the film's first wacky trailer.

It's surprising with the amount of cult films there's been in cinematic history there hasn't been more films as parodist as this one but today we will break some rules. The Taiwanese director behind this one is Joe Chien the man behind the awful Zombie108 so you may approach this with caution however he does have a few better actors behind this one.This essentially action fighters vs zombies so having Hong Kong stars Phillip Ng and Andy On in he cast the road for the film feels a bit more positive with more solid production.

It has all the underground traits from a fight club, b-movie frolics but will it follow suit like Zombie 108 or will you question why do On and Ng still starring in flicks like this? It must be on a good way it's playing at next month's Cannes (though probably on the market strand to get a distributor!).

Zombie Fight Club also Terrence Yin, Michael Wong.



Synopsis

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. After the chaos has broken out, the originally kind and warmhearted chemistry teacher is now the zombie leader and has transformed into a cruel, vicious, and selfish character.
Violent activists match prisoners against zombies in a malicious killing game; the good side of humanity has seemingly all but vanished. Now that all order is lost, how will humans create a new century? A world of uncertainty awaits: The end? Hope? Or Death?

Zombie 108 DVD Review

No comments: Links to this post




















☆☆☆☆


A cursory glance at some of the Internet’s goriest movie websites tells you that approximately half a billion zombie-themed movies were released in the past 8 months, with another half billion on the way.

That is, admittedly, a slight exaggeration, but there’s no denying that zombie movies continue to be churned out with a worrying regularity that makes their abundance on video-store shelves seem like a desperate parody of their own content. They are quite literally everywhere.

Zombie 108’s tactic to make itself heard amongst the shuffling rabble of its flesh-hungry fraternity, is to sell itself as Taiwan’s first ever zombie movie.

It’s to be hoped that it’s also the last. Zombie 108’s treatment of the shambling, groaning, venerable old monster is so wanton, so profoundly pig-headed, it surely marks the point at which we collectively shelve the genre for the time-being, and turn our attentions to mummies or radioactive insects instead.

The initial copy made available for viewing was removed from its berth on Vimeo due to apparent complications with the English subtitles. It was therefore with no small sense of irony that I settled in to watch a replacement copy, only to find that the film employs only a minimum of intelligible dialogue anyway. It’s an honest question to wonder whether this laughably incoherent collection of violent set-pieces would be in anyway degraded by a complete and utter removal of all sound from the film. A non-descript, laboratory-based disaster is unleashed upon Taipei, turning its denizens into a hungry, gooey army of the undead. This complicates matters for the upright members of the Taiwanese SWAT team engaged in a turf war with a local mob boss. The zombies shuffle in, and the two sides must work together in order to avoid being served-up as an entrĂ©e.

It’s a joyless, meaningless parade of tits, bums, chicks with guns, a little bit of parkour, and a lot of sub-standard gore.

But it’s the addition of a sleazy torture-sub-plot, making its presence felt too often for comfort, which prevents Zombie 108 from being merely noisy, juvenile nonsense. It’s in these moments that the film falls into downright lecherous misogyny and startling, incomprehensible animal cruelty. A rape scene intercut with moments of comedy stands as particularly ill-judged, coming dangerously close to Last House on the Left territory.

Zombie 108’s existence was made possible thanks to the generosity of some 900 or so individuals who heeded director Joe Chien’s plea for charity and donated money to fund the film. If you count yourself among the 900, might I suggest you politely ask for a refund? It takes guts to pull the trigger on a friend or family-member who has slowly but surely begun the painful transformation into a walking cadaver; but it must be done. Likewise, Zombie 108 is a film which desperately needs euthanising.

Its a Second Life Drama, Trailer for R U THERE

No comments: Links to this post

Before you say anything this is n't a trailer for a second life online game trailer, its actually a movie not about the website but movie did screen at Cannes this year and did get a decent positive response.

R U THERE tells the story of Jitze (20), a professional gamer who travels around the world to compete in video game tournaments. During a stay in Taipei he unexpectedly witnesses an accident which resembles those he re-enacts in his video games on a day to day basis; this confronts him with his own mortality and his world is suddenly shaken by reality, in a violent way. He meets an intriguing Taiwanese woman in the hotel bar where he is staying, never quite figuring out whether she is an escort, masseuse or bettle nut girl. He tries to get close to her but only manages to do so in the virtual world, on Second Life which they both visit. - imdb
