Creepy zombie movie in a traditional Chinese village
on 23 August 2010
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.
