Jjong-Bi (Jung Ga-Ram) escapes from an underground experimentation lab and is basically a zombie, shambling about and chasing people (slowly). He encounters the daughter, Min-Gul (Nam-gil Kim), of the Park family who run a garage and make their living overcharging for repairs to cars which hit spikes on a road which they have placed there.
They lock the zombie in one of their sheds, and he's happy eating cabbages with tomato sauce on. But then the father, Man-Deok (Park In-Hwan), gets bitten, but as a result his hair regrows and he gets younger! Thus all the old folk in the town want to get bitten, and do, and they too regain their youth.
However, of course there's a price, and soon they all resort to zombieism and there's a full scale zombie apocalypse happening. Min-Gul and Jjong-Bi are having a sort of relationship though and he's trying to protect her from the ravening hoards ...
It is a crazy film, but it all works and pulls you along with it. The action is fast and furious, and you tend to forget that it's subtitled. As Zombie entries go, I really enjoyed it. The make-up and effects are nicely done, and there's even a cute homage/mention of Train to Busan in there too ...
Recommended to all connoisseurs of brain-munching horror.
