Get the Hell Out

Taiwan | 2020 | 96 minutes | I-Fan Wang

April 8 - 18, 2021

Politics may bring out the worst in us, but nothing compares to the events in this action-packed Grand Guignol comedy about a team of activists, legislators, and civilians going up against a parliament filled with hyperactive zombie mutants infected with “idiot rabies.”

Directors Chen Ming-lang (The Teacher) and Chen-ti Kuo (Final Exam), Producer Yi-Sen Ko (Get the Hell Out), and distributor Eric Chou discuss their cinematic visions of Taiwan. Presented in partnership with UW Taiwan Studies Program.

Committed to protecting her hometown from the construction of a chemical plant, hotheaded Hsiung (Megan Lai) attempts to climb the political ladder of Taiwan’s Legislative Yuan to become a Member of Parliament. When her journey towards the top gets cut short because of a violent outburst between her and a nosey journalist, she uses shy security guard Wang (Bruce Ho) as her personal pawn. Hsiung carefully directs the uncertain Wang through a hidden headset as he attempts to overthrow the government's decision to build a chemical plant next to Hsiung’s childhood home, but it’s not long before their whole plan implodes. As if the fight for justice wasn’t proverbially (and sometimes literally) bloody enough, a fast-spreading virus is rapidly working its way through parliament, eventually culminating in an all-out gory brawl. Director I-Fan Wang’s first feature Get the Hell Out is a colorful, speedy, kinetic, and extremely bloody rollercoaster showing government corruption and tabloid obsession in the form of an unrelenting zombie crisis. Punchy editing, animated breaks, and an ass-kicking cast make this offbeat undead horror comedy a pure adrenaline rush in the vein of Edgar Wright and George Romero.
