Again, the Zombie Diaries dvd cover has nothing to do with the film, it seems Dimension Extreme has issues with truth in marketing, but regardless, it's a great film made by our friend Michael Bartlett (who we'll have an interview posted with soon) and Kevin Gates. Next is a documentary on my favorite rap group, Wu-Tang called Wu: The Story of the Wu-Tang Clan which may not be normal Quiet Earth fare but I'm excited to see. Last off is a trifecta of Minoru Kawasaki weirdness: Executive Koala, The Rug Cop, and The World Sinks Except Japan. Check after the break for trailers, amazon links, and the works.


Zombie Diaries
Purchase at Amazon
In the early part of the 21st Century, an unknown virus began spreading among the populous. Within weeks it had engulfed the entire planet, from the smallest rural communities to the greatest cities. Upon the death of its host, the virus would reanimate the corpse until it was no longer able to support itself. Soon, the planet was infested with a new threat - the undead. So begins our journey into the dystopian world of The Zombie Diaries which is 3 seperate stories.


Wu: The Story of the Wu-Tang Clan
Purchase at Amazon
In the summer of 1993, the Wu-Tang Clan emerged from the slums of Staten Island and took the hip-hop world by storm. Their legacy spanned over a decade, garnering fans worldwide and generating sales in excess of $50 million. This is their story.


Executive Koala
Purchase at Amazon
Tamura works in the offices of a Japanese pickle distribution company. He is conscientious, well liked in the office and has a loving girlfriend Yoko. He is a six foot tall koala bear. One day Yoko his girlfriend turns up dead and Tamura is the chief suspect and so sets out to prove his innocence. He is hampered by gaps in his memory, flashbacks of spousal abuse and the fact that his first wife dissappeared. As any intelligent Koala would he enlists the help of his boss (a white rabbit) and a bartender (frog) to help him discover the truth. Can he prove his innocence? Can he help his company pull off a pickle deal? And what does his bartender and his boss know about the two-hundred year old terrifying secret behind the EXECUTIVE KOALA?


The Rug Cop
Purchase at Amazon
Terrorists steal uranium to build a bomb that they threaten to use to destroy Tokyo if their ransom demands are not meet. A recently transferred cop named Genda who wears a toupee to cover up his receding hairline is assigned to the case. Genda with the help of a group of misfit cops with unusual abilities try to stop the terrorists before they follow through on their threats.


The World Sinks Except Japan
Purchase at Amazon
What would happen if all the continents in the world sank, leaving only Japan above water? With its tongue stuck firmly in its cheek that's exactly what this film explores. Now the only superpower in the world, Japan is able to dictate the law. English as the global language? Not any more. Whale meat back on the menu? You bet. This is a world where 12.5 million non-Japanese refugees are homeless and Schwarzenegger is reduced to performing tricks in bars for money. This hilarious satire pokes fun at global superpowers, western traditions and foreign immigrants.

"Zombie Diaries" deserves to be acknowledged as coming along before Romero had even started filming his inferior "Diary of the Dead". Us Brits did this first!!
