"Dead funny" - Straits Times

"From its 37-minute opening shot to its hilarious finale, Ueda Shin'ichirô's ecstatic debut is an infectiously fun must-see for horror fans" - Indie Wire

A cast of relative unknowns, a brilliantly disguised low budget and an epic 37-minute opening single take makes this a bright, breezy and laugh-out-loud hilarious zombie comedy.

PLEASE STAY TILL AFTER THE END CREDITS!!

Set in an abandoned water filtration plant, the director browbeats his actors and demands more special effects blood, a real zombie apocalypse erupts, much to his auteur delight. Packed with meta-movie references as mocking as they are loving, this relentless takedown of the Living Dead genre is a total blast.
