This Chinese Zombie 108 Movie Looks Amazing!

Usually, zombie movies mean “low budget” flicks with no real value added to them and that gets even worse for foreign zombie movies. However, I just received a trailer for an upcoming Chinese (or Japanese, can’t say for sure) zombie movie title Zombie 108. And it looks hot like hell!

Here’s the synopsis of the upcoming film: “The nuclear disaster that Japan suffered accidentally alters the genes of the influenza virus. A group of young people get infected and haven’t paid any attention to their illness, until a boy surprisingly bites a girl’s throat in a drunken night out. Their friends start screaming at the gushing blood. After the viral event, the government orders to quarantine the sick and evacuate all residents in the vicinity. But those drunk party people are not aware of this message. Meanwhile, the army and the police join hands to form a SWAT team to enter the quarantined zone. Those survivors suddenly become zombies to attack the living. In no time, the whole city is film with such huge bloodshed. People from all walks of life – including gangsters, policemen, SWAT teams and the civilians – are willing to work together to escape, but they have hidden schemes to compete with and they may even kill each other.” (you gotta love the Engrish, too!)

Unfortunately, no extra information was available about Zombie 108 and the movie is not featured on IMDB, but it sure looks like one hell of a project with a pretty big budget too – so if you find let, let me know where so that I can see it too!

Fan-Funded The Silent City Web-Series Will Debut in May

Just recently I found out about The Silent City, an upcoming web series that is going to be released sometime in May / April this year. Although it appears that it’s not completely focused on zombies, but more on storytelling and a post-apocalyptic setting where just one single survivor is left in New York, the upcoming web series also seems to have some zombies in (and more than 1 character) and is completely exciting.

The Silent City raised funds on Kickstarter and is now preparing for launch. It is shortly described as “A new take on the post-apocalyptic road movie, The Silent City explores a world where one wrong turn can mean the extinction of the species.”

What I really liked about this upcoming web series (the first season will have 5 3-minute long episodes) was the explanation the director gave: “We want to show that smart, meaningful, soulful films don’t have to be boring, and that zombie films don’t have to be brainless.” That is very interesting and promising!

And of course, there are not just words to back the upcoming series up! There’s also a teaser trailer for The Silent City available on YouTube and it looks amazing. I am really excited about this project and honestly I can’t wait to see it! Until then, the teaser is all we’ve got:

Osombie: The Axis of Evil Dead Looks Like a Pretty Cool Zombie Movie

‘Woo! A zombie movie with Colin Farrel!’ – this is what I first thought when I stumbled upon Osombie: The Axis of Evil Dead.

Something was not making sense though and after looking closer at the trailer and the details, I realized that Osombie: The Axis of Evil Dead is not actually starring Colin Farrel, but Corey Sevier, a guy that totally looks like the Colin.

The good thing is that this made me look closer and pay a bit more attention to Osombie: The Axis of Evil Dead and I realized that it looks a lot better than most of your indie and usually crap zombie movies: despite it’s hilarious and kind of stupid premise – Bin Laden is coming back from the dead as a zombie and he has to be killed… again together with his army of zombie terrorists, Osombie seems like a very solid project with good special effects, intense atmosphere and some really good looking zombies. I am surprised.

Interested? You can check it out on IMDB here.
