Director Higurashi is “fast, cheap but average”, and gets the task to make movie about making of a zombie movie for a special direct broadcast TV slot. As can be guessed, not everything goes as smoothly as the first 37 minutes show. Ueda’s delightfully comedic metamovie broke box office records in Japan.
