So bizarre it beggars belief, this film throws together the Alpine musical, Jan Svankmajer-style claymation, early 80s music video choreography and some well hammy acting to produce what can, at best, be classified a 'horror musical'. The film tells of the Katakuri clan, a close-knit guesthouse-owning family whose visitors keep dying inexplicably. To avoid scandal, the family bury them near a toxic lake … and the dead re-emerge as all-singing, all-dancing zombies. A truly stunning spectacle that's surreal in the extreme.
