Miss ZOMBIE (Sabu, Japan, 2013, 85 mins) is a feminist take on the zombie movie genre.
When the Teramoto family received their new domestic servant, Sara (Ayaka Komatsu), they were provided specific instructions: do not feed her meat and use the enclosed pistol to “dispatch” it, if there is a threat of bodily harm. So begins the ultra-dark comedy by Japanese cult director Sabu. The fearful neighbors treat the disfigured servant as a monster, even as the family comes to trust and accept her. Like all good zombie movies, “Miss Zombie” blends humor with moments of frightening violence, and holds up a mirror to society, forcing us to question who among us are the actual monsters. Content warning for gender-based violence.
