Trailer For Filipino Zombie Comedy Zombadings

5 Comments

From the Philippines, the country responsible for bat-shit crazy classics like 1983’s “The Killing of Satan”, comes a new zombie comedy from director Jade Castro, entitled “Zombadings”.

Set to come out sometime in 2011, there is a new trailer for “Zombadings” for your consumption. Now I don’t speak Tagolog, so I’m not 100% clear on what’s going on here, but there are some unexplained deaths, awkward teens up to usual teenage shenanigans (like getting butterfly tattoos and probably trying to get laid), a creepy mystic, and, of course, all manner of flesh-crazed, undead monsters roaming about. In my book, that adds up to a pretty good time at the movies.

Here is what the film’s official Facebook page has to say about the plot:

A coming of age story.
A coming together of friends and family story.
A coming of Zombadings story.
Coming sooner.

Here is the trailer via Twitch.

    I like it. xD It’s funny. A movie about some killer killing gays, and then those gays become zombies. xD

    I was cracking up, laughing and very much in the moment of superb happiness, heck I even stomped on the floor a countless times because every scene was making everything inside me soo hyper!

    Regardless of its genre, one clear thing is clear. The theme of the film is not a zombie apocalypse but a commentary on gays in Philippine society. The film just uses silliness, supernatural events, and sci-fi (did I mention that this film had an identity crisis?) to drive home the point that a person becoming gay should not be seen negatively.

    I truly enjoyed watching this movie. Lots of social commentary and quick wit. It helps tremendously if you speak/understand Tagalog, but if you have a good grip on Sward-speak, it’s even better. The brilliance in this movie comes in the form of comedic timing, old-world humor, and catering to different audiences simultaneously.

    It is a mash-up of several (somewhat unrelated) genres, and it isn’t quite clear at first (similar to the Buffy the Vampire Slayer series) -it will take you for a ride. A bumpy, hilarious, feel-good one. This would not be a bad first, second, and third date movie.

    If you like bad wigs, terrible make-up, zombies, the supernatural, corny bad-guys, close-knit families, gender-blending roles and the like, this is a great movie for you.
