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…
Girls, guns or zombies? Adorable Dutch police girls, guns and zombies!

My thoughts… Kill Zombie! is not a ground-breaking zom-com but it’s a zany, wildly entertaining splatterfest nonetheless! This film works, despite being derivative of many other movies (not just of the zombie variety), because, at its core, is a cast of well-drawn characters and a charming (almost) love story. Kill Zombie! would fit quite nicely on a double-bill with British zom-com Cockneys vs. Zombies (2012). Oh, and Gigi Ravelli is soooo adorable!
