Zombiology: Enjoy Yourself Tonight (2017)
DIRECTOR: Alan Lo
STARRING: Kai-Chung Cheung, Alex Man, Carrie Ng
When a monster from a popular animated show appears and starts a zombie outbreak, it is up to eccentric duo Lung and Chi-Yeung to stand up and fight the horde of the recently deceased and save their friends from all around chaos!
I love foreign films like this because they tend to get wild and crazy! Zombiology is another movie that does just that. You just never know what we’ll see here and what our two main heroes are going to have to deal with along the way. Yes, we have zombies, but we also have soo much more here in this weird flick. Everyone is turning into zombies and we have lots of very Evil Dead 2 feeling mayhem and I really can appreciate that sort of thing, so I got a bit out of this one and maybe a bit more than just anyone will. I don’t think everyone will love this, but if you enjoy stuff like Helldriver I think you’ll be in the same ballpark to enjoy what you get here with this one. This is a movie with a lot of styles and has a very cool atmosphere to go along with it. This one is bloody and a lot of fun.

Vidar the Vampire (2017)
DIRECTOR: Thomas Aske Berg, Fredrik Waldeland
STARRING: Thomas Aske Berg, Brigt Skrettingland, Kim Sønderholm
In a desperate attempt to break free of his boring life, lonely bachelor and farmer Vidar Haarr prays to the Lord to grant him a life without boundaries. Instead, he wakes up as the Prince of Darkness! Now, he must adjust to life as a vampire.
Vidar isn’t as all-out insane as the other film on this Blu-ray, but it is a very well done movie that uses a pretty neat gimmick to make for a comedic trip into the life of a guy who has become a vampire. It really reminds you a lot of What We Do In the Shadows, but it does it all in another way minus the found footage method to make a very smart and dry comedic flick that actually fly above the language barrier to make anyone who sees it have a good time with it. Of course, we do have some blood since it is a movie dealing with vampires and that helps for all the more pure horror movie lovers out there and the vampire stuff is all here. It does drag in a few spots, but other than that it is an all-around fun time. This set is a very solid one with two very solid movies.
