Beginning with an almost 40-minute single-take set piece that sets the tone for what’s to come, this cult sensation from Japan is a zippy, silly meta-comedy that’s stuffed with great, self-referential gags about making low-budget horror movies.

The physical humour is perfectly applied to the zombie action, but it’s the development of the character comedy across the film’s three distinct acts that really helps deliver the crowd-pleasing climax.
