Critical reception[edit]

The film was reviewed favourably at variety.com : - "the low-budget film suggests a cross between Lucky McKee’s “The Woman” and Jonathan Levine’s “Warm Bodies,” Miss Zombie’s exploitation by her “owners” even recalls recent realist dramas about foreign domestic helpers (some scenarios are almost identical to those in Cannes Camera d’Or winner “Ilo Ilo”. "Komatsu (Shara) interprets the character’s transformation — from a stiff, marionette-like figure to someone driven by love and altruism — with a sullen intensity made even more effective by her lack of dialogue. Komatsu made her name as a “gravure idol” (a particular type of pin-up girl in Japan), "and some of her scenes with Teramoto cheekily channel certain genres of Japanese erotica." [2]
