This to me seems as good a description as any for some of the vampire zombie crossover films that are appearing. To recap, in 1954 Richard Matheson gave us I am Legend a book that detailed a vampire apocalypse. This was a direct inspiration for Romero when he made Night of the Living Dead, which of course is the granddaddy of zombie flicks (despite not mentioning the word zombie). Thus the zombie flick was born out of the vampire genre and became a genre in its own right. There have been films and books, quite a few recently, that seem to merge aspects of what has become the zombie (and in that I am including the infected type films) genre and the vampire genre. There are more or less traits from one genre or the other and – from a vampire point of view – they deserve investigating…
Not that Sars Wars is a horror movie, not by a long shot. This Thai movie, dating to 2004 and directed by Taweewat Wantha, is a comedy that includes a lot of sexual farce, body humour and some breaking of the fourth wall. It begins with a spokeswoman on the news declaring Thailand virus free, especially of Sars 4, which is devastating Africa. Images of Africa follow, with many dead and then a mosquito flies from the mouth of a zombifying corpse and manages to find its way across the world to Thailand.
