A film crew is shooting a zombie horror flick in an abandoned water filtration plant, allegedly used for human experiments by the military. Just as the director browbeats his actors and demands more special effects blood, a real zombie apocalypse erupts, much to his auteur delight.

MUBI's take

Earning its budget thousandfold at the box office, this zombie sensation is both a financial and stylistic success. Opening with a 37-minute long shot, the film evolves into a nesting doll of a story, blending comedy and horror to form a meticulous satire that goes beyond formal exercise.
