SARS Wars: Bangkok Zombie Crisis

SARS Wars: Bangkok Zombie Crisis is a great cheesy b-movie horror spoof from Thailand, one that I fully recommend to anyone with an interest in these types of films and hasn't seen it yet, however with a few reservations. Picture something similar to Wild Zero, only not nearly as well-made and yet a whole lot more entertaining and you basically have the gist of what SARS Wars is like. What you're getting from this is a movie filled with silly costumes, zombies, a thumping soundtrack, cartoon sound effects, over-the-top acting and violence, a giant snake, out-of-place animated sequences, scantily clad female characters doing sexy dances, and a general sense of fun and energy. If that sounds awesome to you, then you'll love this movie. I nearly gave it 5 stars myself, but there were a few too many lame jokes and "plot-twists", and it sort of fell apart near the end. It also looks absolutely terrible (shot on digital video with horrible lighting and then run through a heavy grain filter to make it look like film), but actually has some decent cinematography and CG effects. So in conclusion, SARS Wars: Bangkok Zombie Crisis is complete trash, but it's entertaining trash, and it's still better than about 90% of the other zombie movies out there.
