Bio Zombie(WY Retro)
Small-time gangsters Invincible and Bee, best friends who run a pirated DVD shop, are slackers who are into all the vices. While returning from a mission for their boss, they accidentally hit someone on the road. After bringing the corpse back to the mall, the corpse reanimates as a zombie and starts infecting anyone it comes across. When the mall’s shutters come down, the survivors become locked in a cage with nowhere to escape, and the zombies will leave no one unturned. Will Invincible and Bee step up to the plate and become heroes of the night?
This early-career Wilson Yip film remains his most popular cult favourite. Without the budget of a Hollywood zombie film, Yip and his team make the best of their limited resources by being as inventive as possible in their contained setting of a closed mall. They enrich the film with memorable characters, hilarious dialogue and clever inspirations from video games. The eclectic script that puts postmodern triad thugs in a disaster narrative is filled with dark humour, creating a low-fi living dead film that is uniquely Hong Kong.
Presented on 35mm film.
