Somewhere in this process things go wrong ... which is the theme of the film.
I was pleasantly surprised by the aesthetic aspect of this film - all is filmed in the narrow streets and the traditional houses of an ancient Chinese village, and the landscapes surrounding it. Not the trashy post-apocalyptic scene of most zombie movies. Well filmed and eery. Enough gore to satisfy zombie lovers.
Walking the dead is set in a very lovely looking Chinese town, unusual in it's design, somewhat Western looking buildings with a Chinese twang.
Although low budget and not really that horrifying, I found this movie to be very enthralling. It's slow witted inhabitants, the remnants of a dead town kept alive with the practice of 'Walking the Dead'. Masters of this art are the only ones capable of this feat. The idea was that the dead would need to be taken home for burial so the master would 'Walk the Dead' back to their hometowns to their families. Things were taken too far here and an American reporter bent on regaining his reputation arrives to investigate the mysterious claims of a local who wished for the truth to be told.
So close to being a fantastic supernatural offering, let down by a low budget and questionable actors.
Cinematography is good and storyline interesting enough to keep me going, Walking the Dead is on me shelf with a 6/10.
First of all we've got to address the acting - in a word awful. The main male lead (Ted Biggs) was weak and though not his fault, his character wasn't at all likable. What was supposed to be the 'hero' character was actually a smug, grating and one dimensional annoyance. Also check out the cartoon-esque overrating and very strange, stumbling running style that is adopted.
The female lead was okay, but I knew I was in trouble when China's answer to the keystone cops appeared - seriously, the one of them was laughably bad; but again the cheesy script didn't help matters.
Then there's the plot which was at least original, but that had more holes than a colander. One example: So your niece is buried alive, surely there would be a little more urgency? Oh no, this pair decide to take a nap and begin the search in the morning.....and guess what they only go and leave the door open, knowing that 'The Walker' is after them. You crazy kids! Also, if you were the only person left alive in your home village, being stalked by your un-dead, axe-weilding father, where would you hide-out?...Why at home of course! He'd never think of looking there!
SFX were cheap, so you haven't even got the safe bet of plenty of gore to hide the problems. The ending, when it finally yawns around is as bad as the rest of it (by this time we were actually laughing!Read more ›
