Woody and Bee are a pair of young punks working at a DVD store. Out for a joy ride, the two hit a pedestrian and end up with a dead body in their trunk! Un-fortunately for Woody and Bee, this is just the beginning. The dead body is infected with a strange biochemical formula, which transforms the hapless mall goers into an army of blood-hungry zombies! English Dub, Cantonese with English subtitles, Photo gallery.
Enjoyable horror-comedy that confounds expectations and manages to deliver equal parts horror, comedy and character. --LoveHKFilm.comSee all Editorial Reviews

I Like Horror Movies
I have come to expect more from the Asians in terms of horror, having been spoiled with other brilliant titles. This however is a bad seed. It's more or less Bill and Ted (not a good thing) meets Dawn of the dead.. gone horribly wrong. It contains very little onscreen gore (for those inclined), the acting is either non-exsistant, or very overplayed. Makeup is not even on par with what I've come to expect from some of the worst ventures into the genre. Effects, same thing. Apart from a couple scenes there's only a couple of attempts at doing away with the zombies in a clever or original fashion. It's all very weathered and/or seen umptheens of times before.
I'd say... be vary, unless you're particullary interested, or have some other good reason to see it (which thought I had), don't.
Sometimes a Zombie flick is just so much fun that we can overlook its obvious flaws and failiers. “Bio Zombie” falls into that category. Please bear in mind that this is a Hong Kong Chinese Zombie film with a Chinese cast and dubbed in English. Dubbing always presents a problem for the viewer but as with the other problems, we just roll with it. The production values actually hold up pretty well, the sound has no real problems and the Zombie make up we actually like. The acting is hard to judge due to cultural unfamiliarity, I don't know how lower class, hip young Chinese kids act. I have no reference points.
But I doubt that even a drunk girl would accept the sexual advances of a guy who a couple of hours before had mugged and robbed her. And in a men's room to boot. But who knows the heart of a 20 year old drunk Chinese girl?
The main problem I had with the movie relates to the main characters. Two low life scavengers, Woody and Bee, are criminals of the most petty sort. Woody, the leader, has no redeeming character points at all. He exhibits cowardice, bullying, stupidity and a general lack of respect for anyone other than himself. We can count his decision making time frame in seconds.
In an unlikely series of events involving a Bio Weapon, a Zombie outbreak break out. One very good line “This is the best grade of Bio Weapon from Iraq. Even better than the Americans.” Our two cheap thieves have a tiny shop selling boot leg CDs in a very low rent shopping mall. A small cast of believable characters ineffectually battle the Zombies up and down and round about the mall.
It was all rather fun to watch. There is even a bit of a literary thought that went into the finally of the film which I didn't expect but appreciated. Character growth, irony and pathos hop into our eyeballs totally unsought or looked for.
This unrated but strong three brain Zombie flick from Hong Kong runs a Zombie film average of one and a half hours. It should be rated about “PG-13” for some light munching and the interrupted bathroom love scene.
