“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds."

Zombie 108 (2012)
How bad is it? It's a film with promise that fails completely. Should you see it? If you habitually watch zombie films, this one's acceptable... but barely.
This zombie film comes from Taipei and exploits the real-life radiation leak from the Japanese nuclear reactors at the time, causing people to die and then become zombies. There's a couple of interesting sub-plots, including the armed forces having to join forces with gangsters and a serial killer who capitalizes on the mayhem. There's plenty of gore (and nudity), but it's not done well. The soundtrack gave me a headache. In the hands of an experienced director with a bigger budget, this could've worked.
