A Russian Space station crashes in Amsterdam, releasing a deadly virus that turns everyday citizens into flesh-craving psychopaths. Aziz (Yahya Gaier), his brother Mo (Ouled Radi) and several strangers emerge from jail, oblivious to the mayhem until they team up with a local police officer (Gigi Ravelli). After receiving a desperate call for help, this unlikely band of heroes sets out on an insane rescue mission - and it's going to take a seriously crazy plan if they want to get out alive...
"Kill Zombie!" is a zombie film much like "Shaun of the Dead" or any other zombie flick that has its fair share of comedy it in. The film has a simple plot about a satellite that crashes in downtown Amsterdam that contains some sort of slime that infects people and makes them hungry for human flesh. The main character in the film is Aziz who is not having a very good day. He got a date with Tess, the hottest girl in town and his boss is so jealous he fires Aziz. If that was not bad enough he ends up in jail with his brother after they get in a fight with a couple thugs. When they wake the next morning they quickly find out that things are not the same and there are now zombies running loose. Just when he thinks things could get any worse he gets a call for Tess saying she is stuck on the upper floors at work with zombies all over the place. Aziz must persuade his brother, the two thugs and a beautiful, tough as nails female cop to help him save Tess but their journey will not be an easy one.
"Kill Zombie!" is not much different from any other horror/comedy but if taken for what it is it is very entertaining. There is a perfect mixture of comedy and mayhem with exploding heads, arms being ripped off and even some human vs zombie head to head combat. The effects are cheesy but that is half the fun and they are no worse than any other zombie film like it. The film does not take itself serious there is no need for the audience too either. As far as the acting goes I thought everyone did a great job playing these off the wall characters.
The film is presented in it's original Dutch language with English subtitles but do not let that distract you from checking it out. "Kill Zombie!" is a fast moving, funny and action packed zombie flick that delivers on what it promises so if you like your zombies be sure to check this one out.
