Plot[edit]

In the first story, a samurai and a monk work together to defeat zombies in a Japanese forest. In the second story, a female private detective discovers that the Japanese artifact is responsible for string of zombie attacks in the 1940s. The third story is set in a post-apocalyptic wasteland where vampires and werewolves fight each other. Humans capture them and force them to fight against zombies.
