Stunning Trailer for Japanese Zombie Flick ‘Undertaker’

Chris Savage

We’re all accustomed to the over-the-top style of many Japanese horror films, often including such random acts of violence with some of the most obscure stories known to man. But sometimes, they can unleash something with a bit of human emotion, case in point, Naoyoshi Kawamatsu’s zombie flick, Undertaker.

Below we have the first official English-subbed trailer and poster for the stunning and highly intriguing flick, give it a watch and let us know what you think.

The film stars Yoshito Kobashigawa, Shinta Souma, Yuina Kumakura, Usagi Ohyama, Tetsuyuki Wakabayashi, Setsuko Kawaguchi, Tomoka Asano and Sakae Yamaura.

Synopsis: “The dead returned to Life…The gruesome predators…”Returners” have spread all over the world.
Few survivors are living in the secluded and All the cities were occupied by the Returners.

But, there is one figure walking in the ghost city.
Holding strange shovel in one hand, And the dried meet, rice, and a body bag is packed in the military backpack he’s carrying.
His occupation is “UNDERTAKER”.
Going anywhere, Taking care of walking dead for clients.
Client could be anyone―the parent, the lover, the best friend―of the returner. Or maybe someone who hated the returner so much while the returner was living.

There’re so many things clients say,
“I can’t do such thing…killing someone I love”
“Can’t take the risk…walking among the living dead.”
“Got a better things to do.”
And the UNDERTAKERs think,
“Killing past for their own reason…the Living are much selfish.”
Suppressing the distress, UNDERTAKERs keep searching Returners in the ruins. And a sharpened shovel is his only companion.”

        Kinda reminds me of a book. The Return Man. 
        “The outbreak tore the US in two. The east remains a safe haven. The west has become a ravaged wilderness, known by survivors as the Evacuated States. It is here that Henry Marco makes his living. Hired by grieving relatives, he tracks down the dead and delivers peace.”
