The third of Peter Jackson's horror-comedies - a parody of zombie, gore and splatter movies which contains copious quantities of all these. In 1957 Wellington, a young Latin woman meets a romantic partner in the dairy in which she works. While they stroll in Wellington Zoo, his prying mother is bitten by a Sumatran rat-monkey from Skull Island and infected with a virus that turns her into a rotting zombie with a craving for meat - any meat. Her first victim is a nurse and it spreads from there until the couple is confronted with a neighbourhood of bloodthirsty zombies which they must eliminate by various means. Has become a cult classic.
