A crazy horror comedy about the fact that shooting a zombie movie in one take is harder than you think. Especially when the actors are drunk. Or when they become real zombies. A flick about the pitfalls of the craft of filmmaking that shows what it’s really like to tear someone a new one.


Synopsis

A small crew is shooting a low-budget zombie flick in an abandoned factory where the Japanese Army once experimented on dead bodies. It doesn’t take long before the actors and crew start changing into real live corpses. The perfectionist director, however, refuses to cancel the shoot and, obsessed by a fixation on pure art, he runs about filming amid the chaos while the zombie disease picks off one victim after another. Indeed, this helmer is willing to sacrifice anything to get the perfect shot. Or is he? Can a zombie spatter-fest turn out to be a family comedy as well? That depends on your point of view. Shot on a shoestring budget but with a brass- buckle love of the craft, Ueda’s feature debut is an original tribute to all true moviemakers.
