Seriously. How the heck did I miss this one!? I have just seen the trailer and read the synopsis for Sabu’s Miss Zombie, and this is already up there with a few films that I must see this year. In short, Miss Zombie, looks set to be awesome. An original idea, sharp acting and it’s beautifully shot too. Damn, I love Japanese cinema.
If you have been keeping your eyes on this one, or are no simply intrigued, you will be pleased to know that Miss Zombie is invading this year’s Fantastic Fest, and we have a few photos and a trailer to showcase below.
Synopsis: A doctor and his family receive an unexpected delivery from an old friend at their remote country home – a large wooden crate containing a gun, a female zombie and an instruction sheet telling them not to feed her meat. The family is concerned, of course, but she seems harmless enough. Perhaps she can help clean up outside? Welcome to the unusual world of MISS ZOMBIE, a world in which the zombie virus is clearly a well-known phenomenon and in which more docile sufferers are bought and sold to hobbyists or those looking for cheap labour. It’s a practice not without controversy – the neighbours aren’t thrilled about the newly arrived undead – but she’s quiet, requires little supervision and is an immediate hit with the family’s young son.
So what do you guys think?
