Saturday Matinee: Sars Wars


“Sars Wars” (2004) is a Thai horror-comedy (aka “splatstick”) feature directed and co-written by Taweewat Wantha. When people infected with a “Type 4” strain of the SARS virus from Africa start turning into zombies, the Health Ministry attempts to contain the outbreak within one Bangkok apartment building. At the same time, a sword-wielding superhero and his mentor must rescue a kidnapped schoolgirl from a gang hiding out in the same building before it’s demolished by the government. Sars Wars delves into similar territory as Evil Dead 2 and Dead Alive, though it makes those films seem subtle and restrained in comparison.
