“Pop stars and zombies, you say? I’m there!” – BeyondHollywood.com

Tired of zombies? We feel you, and that is why ZOMVIDEO is a uniquely hilarious dummies guide to zombies, a step-by-step instructional manual about how to deal with the denizens of the dead! This comedy-horror-satire aint’ your average zombie story! Some fledgling editors working in a dead-end sleazy video company find a mystical VHS that is uncannily related to each undead encounter they face in the wake of a sudden zombie apocalypse in Tokyo city!

The increasing denizens of the dead are led by two very enigmatic and deranged half-zombie women (played by J-Pop stars C-ute) who have a bizarre relationship and the strange ability to control the zombies every move. Playing direct from Yubari Film Festival Japan, this is one very charming, brand new and hilarious gem that is equal parts Shaun of the dead, Battle Royale and Videodrome! ZOMVIDEO brilliantly plays with the tropes and conventions of zombies and turns them into something you have never seen before and is easily the smartest horror-comedy to ever come out of Asia.
