Welcome to Kuala Lumpur, where the Petronas Twins Towers stand tall and proud. A land where you can choose nasi lemak, roti canai and wantan mee for an epic breakfast. But how about if you added human flesh to the list?

Based on the FIXI novel Zombijaya by Adib Zaini, KL Zombi tells the story of Nipis (Zizan Razak) a mat rempit cum pizza delivery boy, who (armed with a hockey stick), is Malaysia’s only hope of surviving a zombie outbreak. The zombie outbreak has reached the shores of Sarawak whilst the cause of the virus is unknown. KL Zombi is directed by MJ Woo and stars an assemble cast of Zizan Razak, Siti Saleha, Zain Hamid and Afiq Izzudin.

Like the Brit flick Shaun of the Dead and Hollywood’s Warm Bodies, KL Zombi is a zom-com which promises as much humour as gore. Can it hope to find equal success within the zombie genre? Check out the trailer to make up your own mind. KL Zombi hits cinemas on 29 August 2013.
