It was one of the highlights of this years Arrow Video FrightFest Glasgow and if the lockdown can’t keep you indoors, this might. ‘Get inside’ and watch the UK Trailer for Korean Zom-Rom Com Zombie For sale, it will save you…literally!
This film is so infectious, that’s in a positive way. The film surprised us and all we’ll say is the final third of the film is totally bonkers! The film marks Lee Min-jae directorial feature debut which has a zombie that loves cabbage with ketchup to human brains in blood!
Zombie for Sale (aka The Odd Family: Zombie On Sale it’s full title), follows the idiosyncratic Odd family. They cross paths with a zombie created largely thanks to pharmaceutical company’s illegal experiments. They see $$$ signs and try make a profit from the zombie.
When the illegal human experiments of Korea’s biggest Pharmaceutical company go wrong, one of their “undead” test subjects escapes and ends up in a shabby gas station owned by the Park family – a band of misfits spanning three generations who hustle passers-by to make ends meet. When the Park family uncover their undead visitor, he bites the head of their household, who instead of transforming into an undead ghoul becomes revitalised and full of life! The family then hatch a plan to exploit this unexpected fountain of youth, allowing locals to pay to be bitten too, until things go wrong…
With a cabbage-munching zombie who prefers ketchup over blood, and a dysfunctional family that gives the Kim family of Parasite a run for their money, Zombie for Sale will warm the deadest of hearts and breathe some new life into the zombie genre.
The film stars Jung Jae-young, Kim Nam-gil and Uhm Ji-won.
Zombie for Sale (The Odd Family: Zombie On Sale) will arrive in the UK and Ireland on Blu-Ray on 6th July.
