This could have been the horror movie of the year, with all it had going for it; an unusual and intriguing setting, a great concept and a twist in the tail that you don't see coming a mile off, and some really good shocker moments. The female lead is superb, and the child performers are good; the effects are well done, and the location is used to excellent effect. But in the end it fails to generate much tension or hold together, for several reasons. The makeup work could have been better, with the walking dead mostly appearing to just be having a bad hangover. The male lead, Ted Biggs, goes through most of the story with a knowing smirk on his face which is okay for the first part of the film, where he does not know or believe what is happening; but once he has been shown absolute proof, it becomes difficult to suspend disbelief when he continues to smirk throughout the most traumatic events. The music is patchy, at times brilliantly enhancing the mood and at others totally disrupting it. But the real problem is the scripting. The plot is garbled, taking the fascinating concept of the walker of the dead (who can raise corpses but is only supposed to do so in order to walk them to their homes for burial - an idea used years ago in Mr Vampire) and burying it under a jumbled mass of other ideas from daft to dull. There are pointless scenes involving the 'hero's' employer and an office boy back in the States; a gang of Chinese punks is dragged in and used in most cliched way possible. The villain, the demented chap with an axe featured so prominently on the cover, is blind, which allows for some creepy moments but which also begs the question of how a village-full of people failed to prevent him from murdering them all. Continuity is poor, especially in the scenes with the punks.Read more ›

I watched this movie on a lazy Sunday afternoon and I was quite happy with it. It deals with the undead theme but not in the Romero-like or Voodoo manner. In this traditional Chinese village, the zombies originate from an old tradition of "walking the dead", thus allowing them to return to their hometown and find peace in their grave.
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.

I wanted a film that reminded me of the Forbidden Siren Games, and I almost got it....almost. This movie is far better than the actual movie of the games.
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.

At the time of writing 'Walking the Dead' is hovering between three and a half and four stars on Amazon. Well if this tripe is an above average film the summer heat must be getting to me more than I thought - come on folks, our standards haven't dropped that much have they!?

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!
