Director Higurashi (Takayumi Hamatsu) is making a low budget zombie movie that illustrates his motto to a tee: "cheap, fast, but average." He's got a low-budget cast, a location in an abandoned water filtration plant and a skeleton crew - and more, he's going to make the film in one long take! But as the filming begins, something strange happens; all of a sudden, his crew and cast are becoming zombies themselves. Okay, sounds like a standard scare-em-up zombie flick, but that couldn't be farther from the truth. The set-up is actually meant to inaugurate a new all-zombie television channel and the publicity from a one-take half-hour show will be an instant sensation. Only that's not exactly what's going on either....It's important not to give any more of the story away because the whole thing is about as meta as it's possible to be; it is also easily the funniest movie I've seen in practically forever, and while I still have 4 more films to screen at this year's FantAsia Festival in Montreal, of the 11 I've seen so far this one is my absolute favourite! Don't try to tease out more details, just look for this movie wherever you might find it; believe me, you will be ecstatic that you did!

Best Film at FantAsia Festival This Year (So Far)Reviewed byalisonc-1Vote: 10/10
This starts off really cool. Then the zombies come in from nowhere (based on a "rumor"). It kind of gets really dumb at that point.
I stuck with it because the leads actress is super hot and I couldn't take my eyes off her. She can't act herself out of a paper bag but she's got a kick a$$ body.The problem with the film is that it's essentially a one shot wonder adn at about the 20 minute mark it becomes redundant.
With a zombie run/zombie kill/zombie run sort of format and it's hard to sustain that for 90 minutes. There's also fuzzy logic that is hard to get over. There appears to be two cameras in operation -- the director who comes and goes and a camera man who you never see but who is always shooting (at one point he even wipes blood off the lens.
That's fine except that the zombies never attack him. Ever. They avoid him in fact, which makes zero sense.
But then suddenly, it all DOES make sense and that's when it really got stupid.
The girl is really hot tho. It's the only film she's been in. I want to see a lot more of her.
Definitely one of the most unique movies I have seen. For the first third, I was a little confused as to why it was so highly rated and thought some choices were a bit odd; not to say it was bad. The 37min long take was still amazing to watch, just a bit odd at times.
However, as the movie begins to reveal its surprise, and I began to understand the genius that was unfolding, it quickly became one of the most enjoyable movies I have had the pleasure of seeing. And so funny! If you can, go in cold to avoid any spoilers.
It's also in rare company in that it's one of the few movies that actually made me laugh out loud.
