The early Sabu films, a couple of which I truly love, really piled on incident. They tended to play off the comedy of escalating consequences precipitated by seemingly minor events. MISS ZOMBIE is short on incident. It is storytelling so bare that it is barely storytelling. You could almost call it a mood piece. A zombie mood piece. Whatever you call it, it is clearly the product of an extremely individual mind.
FNC '13 Hiroyuki Tanaka (Sabu) moves in a different direction with this melancholic take on the zombie genre. A zombie woman is put to work as a servant by a Japanese couple; desired by the husband and treated with contempt and later jealousy by the wife; driven by memories of humanity and motherhood the zombie covets the mothering of the couple's child. Dry and certainly not a horror film but has a memorable finish.
