Recently watch Junk and Stacy, and wondering if there are other Japanese zombie flicks I should know about. Thought Junk was alot of fun, but had a hard time getting past the amateurishness of Stacy.

Versus is the best one I know of, but it's more of an action movie with some comedy than a horror flick. I didn't much care for Stacy or Wild Zero, although the latter has its fans.

I liked Versus a lot and I want to check out all 3 of the other mentioned titles, Junk, Stacy, Wild Zero.
I'm a bit hesitant about WZ, as it seems to have a love/hate reaction....

It's Hong Kong instead of Japan, but I remember a lot of buzz about Bio-Zombie a while back. Never saw it myself, but. . . .

Yeah, STACY had some good ideas but in the end it was a bit of a mess. I'm seeing VERSUS on the big screen this Saturday. Yay!

How about chinese stuff? Mr. Vampire and Encounters of the Spooky Kind. Technically, they´re vampire movies, but the "hopping vampires" of chinese culture are more like zombies than vampires.

I'll also recommend Versus, if you don't mind action mixed in with your zombies.

BIO-ZOMBIE!! Forgot about that and I own it! really enjoyable film. I heard there was a sequel called Bio-Cops but I haven't tracked it down yet....
Mr. Vampire is good, Vampire vs Vampire is decent. I also really liked the recent Tsui Hark's Vampire Hunters.

Hate to add nothing to this thread, but I need to add my extremely enthusiastic :emoji_thumbsup: for Bio-Zombie. Great little film: twisted, funny, irreverent, and at times really sad. The DVD has an extremely entertaining and well done dub track (and I rarely say that, believe me).

Thanks for the suggestions... looks like I'll be tracking down Bio-Zombie and Versus for sure.
