CIA Anent Harry is bitten by a man who was part of a deadly experiment involving the ability to withstand pain. The bacterium has a virus, causing the victim to become a zombie. Upon Harry’s arrival in Hong Kong, after rejection from his ex-girlfriend, the virus begins to take effect. He kills a call girl and is arrested after a gang fight. When he is in prison, Harry transforms into a Zombie King and transforms nearly an entire Triad gang into his personal horde. Soon, the police department becomes a House of the Dead. It’s up to a police officer named Marco, Harry’s ex, and a Triad member named Cheap to stop them before it’s too late.
Wong Jing’s shoddy horror comedy might have gotten points if it werenâ€™t such an obvious rip-off of the excellent Bio-Zombie. Stephen Fung is a cop who must fight zombies that are loose in the police station. Sam Lee is on board as a wacky triad who gets dragged into the mess, and Alice Chan Wai is the femme fatale presence. Steve Cheng directs without direction, as he uses too many slow-motion zombie shots. Furthermore, the continuity is laughable and the ending is a direct lift from Bio-Zombie. By direct, we mean it’s stolen lock, stock, and barrel with pretty much zero apologies. Why Stephen Fung and Sam Lee chose this for their Gen-X Cops reunion is beyond me. (Kozo 2001).
