When the illegal human experiments of Korea's biggest pharmaceutical company go wrong, one of their "undead" test subjects escapes and ends up in a shabby gas station owned by the Park family -- a band of misfits spanning three generations who hustle passersby to make ends meet. When the Park family uncover their undead visitor, he bites the head of their household, who instead of transforming into an undead ghoul becomes revitalised and full of life! The family then hatch a plan to exploit this unexpected fountain of youth, allowing locals to pay to be bitten too, until things go wrong...

All Critics (28) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (25) | Rotten (3)

  • "Zombie for Sale" hits an agreeable median between being slick, shaggy, grotesque and warmhearted.

    July 29, 2020 | Full Review…
  • If you're hungry for something spicy and totally nuts, seek out The Odd Family: Zombie on Sale.

    August 1, 2019 | Full Review…
  • The film riffs on a lot of previous zombie films from "Land of the Dead" to "Warm Bodies" to "Zombieland," yet director Lee Min-jae manages to somehow keep it all fresh and decidedly funny.

    August 3, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Audiences will be so connected with the characters that by the time it becomes a horror movie, Zombie for Sale will be all the more effective.

    July 28, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • This light-on-gore horror satire directed by Lee Min-jae is full of screwy, truly imaginative ideas, and delightfully acted by a terrific ensemble.

    July 27, 2020 | Full Review…
  • When it finally does become a horror flick, the characters are so well-realized that the humor remains and the terror is that much more effective.
