Somehow, zombie Jjong-bi (Jung Ga-ram) has escaped the clutches of a pharmaceutical company conducting illegal experiments, and now he wanders the countryside - until he stumbles upon the run-down garage of the Park family where he soon enough bites the head of the family Man-duk (Park In-hwan) - who doesn't turn into a zombie himself though but emerges a younger and healthier version of himself. This leads the Parks to have a business idea, to have all middle aged men of the village bitten by Jjong-bi for rejuvenation - for a price of course. And at first, business is booming. Each of the Park family members reacts differently to the "zombie blessing" though, Man-duk takes all the money they immediately earn for himself and leaves his offspring for a trip to Hawaii, business savvy son Min-gul (Kim Nam-gil) wants to steal Jjong-bi from right under the others' noses to earn a fortune on his own, his brother Joon-gul (Jeong Jae-yeong) has never quite lost his fear of the zombie, his pregnant wife Nam-joo (Uhm Ji-won) thinks about nothing but making a fortune for her unborn, and only young Hae-gul (Lee Soo-kyung) feels something like sympathy for the zombie, something Jjong-bi even responds to in a way. And Hae-gul soon sees Jjong-bi isn't a bad creature at all, and he'd actually be happy enough to just eat salad all day - so eventually, Hae-gul sets him free, much to the shock of her family. But they're in for an even bigger shock soon, as the zombie bites they've let Jjong-bi administer to the townfolks don't work nearly as well as on their father, as the whole village seems to have turned into flesh-eating zombies - and are now after our heroes who haven't got the foggiest how to treat with a situation like this ...

 

First and foremost, Zombie for Sale is pretty hilarious, a little genre-savvy film that knows how to play with, often subvert zombie mainstays for comical effect - but that's not to say Zombie for Sale is just a genre parody that fishes for laughs and little else, as the film actually has lots of heart, actually shows more of a sense for drama than many straightforward zombie shockers, and manages to switch from comedic to tragic and back just like that repeatedly. Plus, the film shows a solid narrative structure that manages to surprise to the very end - which normally isn't exactly a forte of the zombie genre. And a solid cast playing it straight despite all the madness really ground this movie.

Tons of fun for sure.
