Zibakhana, anyone?

Zibakhana, touted to be Pakistan’s first gore film premiered in Islamabad on Sunday, 10th June (damn, I missed it!). I couldn’t make it as I was a little caught up with stuff. Has anyone seen the movie yet? What are the show timings, the movie website has nothing about them. One of the reviews had this to say about them…

“Billed affectionately as “Pakistan’s first gore film” and clocking in with a run time under 90 minutes, you can pretty much gather from the start that it’s going to be a wild ride indeed.” -Fearnet.com


“It’s actually quite common to overhear genre fans discussing how they are eagerly awaiting the next brutal European survival horror romp, creepy Asian ghost revenge tale, bizarre Japanese psychedelic head trip, or gory Pakistani zombie/slasher film. Okay, go ahead and take a second look, but yes, you did read that correctly. I did say Pakistani zombie/slasher film.” -Fearnet.com

Damn, its going to be good. I congratulate the film makers, the actors and the entire team at making this movie. Not only will it open up the local film industry to new ideas and techniques, the much need attention and sponsorships to private/small productions like these from investors in Pakistan would start generating. Can’t wait to see the movie! Thankfully, this was a first of it’s kind event in Islamabad, in a long long time.

Watch the trailer on YouTube.

    I think they are screening it once in every city( Isloo, Lahore and Karachi). They already screened it in Islamabad. If you visit hotspot maybe you can find out about the next time they show it here.

    Thanks Fahim, you can see we are dying to watch the flick asap. I will personally talk to the Hotspot/Zibakhana management to screen it simultaneously in all cities in some privately owned DVD rooms.
