Set in a sleepy rural village in South Korea, Zombie for Sale is a heartwarming and refreshing comic take on the zombie genre. The movie is directed by Lee Min-jae and stars a talented cast including Jae-yeong Jeong, Nam-gil Kim and Uhm Ji-won. The movie starts with a family of bumbling but charming rural bumpkins who run a gas station on the outskirts of a small village. One day, they come across a strange and eerily silent man all alone in the forest. They take him in, little realising that he is actually a zombie! But neither the zombie nor his new adopted family realise it yet. The strange man is unlike any normal human they have ever encountered. He lacks emotion, speaks in strange groans, and has a strange hunger for raw flesh.

Despite his peculiarities, the family quickly starts to adore their new companion, who they nickname ‘Zzongbie’. In fact, they soon realize that there is something quite different about him as he starts to slowly gain some of his humanity back. But when word of the zombie starts to spread, a local scientist comes knocking on their door, desperate to purchase the zombie to use for his own medical experiments for a cure for Alzheimer’s. And the family find themselves with a moral dilemma: do they sell their new friend to a lab, or do they protect him at all costs?

Zombie for Sale strikes a delicately balanced tone, blending comedy and horror seamlessly. It is surprisingly refreshing for what is typically a gory and dark subject matter. The movie is aesthetically shot and visually stunning to watch with vibrant colours and engaging cinematography. The facial expressions of the zombie evoke both terror and pity, an unusual but fascinating combination that makes the viewer question whether the character is deserving of their empathy or if such feelings are misplaced.

But ultimately, the movie is much more than just laughs and shudders. It's a deep exploration of the value of human life and the point at which humanity is acknowledged in even the most inhumane of creatures. Through the family's unwavering love for Zzongbie, the movie portrays a touching message about looking past appearances and finding the beauty within. As the family attempts to help Zzongbie regain his humanity and help retain his zombie traits, they find themselves drawn into a greater struggle between science and morality.

The performances by the cast are outstanding, with each actor bringing their own individual style and comic timing. Jeong Jae-yeong in particular advocates a compelling portrayal of the lovable but bumbling Mr. Kim and his family unit. Nam-gil Kim rocks his role as the zombie, going from the terrifyingly haunting to the affectionately charming, and Uhm Ji-won demonstrates her acting prowess outside the horror genre, playing both comedy and drama with equal deftness.

Overall, Zombie For Sale is an entertaining, insightful and smartly written movie. It is a well-constructed comic satire that mocks the popular zombie trope while also bringing a unique flavor. The movie never takes itself too seriously, and that is often a refreshing take in a world full of horror movies that tend to all have the same unmistakable ending. If you're looking for a mix of horror, comedy, heartwarming moments and deep reflection, then Zombie For Sale is the perfect movie to watch. It is a must-see for anyone who loves a good zombie movie or just craves something different.

Zombie For Sale is a 2019 horror movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 52 minutes. It has received mostly positive reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.6.
