The creativity behind "KL24: Zombies"

Updated: Aug 3, 2018


Have you ever thought how it would be like if a zombie apocalypse strikes Malaysia? How would Malaysians react, and how would they deal with the outbreak?


That is what independent filmmaker James Lee thought about when he created "KL24: Zombies", Malaysia's first indie zombie film with a story that will change the way people think about the country.


Joining forces with two other talented directors Gavin Yap and Shamaine Othman, the 90-minute full-length film tells the story of the first 24 hours of a zombie outbreak from three different points of view, featuring various quirky and typical Malaysian characters.


Some of the known cast from the film include Sharifah Amani, Azman Hassan, Pete Teo, Joseph Germani, Sue Tan, Fatimah Abu Bakar, Na'a Murad, Benji Lim, Thor Kah Hoong, Alfred Loh, Fahad Iman, and more.


"KL24: Zombies" is now already available for free-viewing on YouTube.


Cinema Online: Can you share the inspiration behind this project? 

James: We are always making all sorts of independent films, and this time we want to do something that is rarely done in Malaysia, that's why we chose a zombie genre.
