I could have sworn I've posted something about KL Zombie a while ago.
Or maybe that was just a Facebook status update. I think I wanted to wait until the release of a theatrical trailer. But then I figured it's okay to save that for another day, because I feel like it's about time that I share with you what I know about this upcoming zombie flick that I am genuinely excited about for several reasons.

Based on the FIXI novel Zombijaya by Adib Zaini, KL Zombie tells the tale of slacker Nipis who becomes a reluctant hero when a zombie outbreak robs him of the only life he knows. At the very core, that's the story, although the book was much more substantial than that. I can't say I know for a fact how many percent of the book was retained. Author Adib Zaini, who also penned the screenplay, provided a figure in an interview. But as of right now I can't quite remember.
Not that it matters anyway.
