ODD FAMILY, MIN-JAE'S LOVE LETTER TO THE MILLENNIAL "ZOM-COM"

Lee Mn-Jae's 2019 film, "The Odd Family, Zombie on Sale" seems to be maybe South Korea 's first entry to the Zombie comedy genre. There's a lot of references to Millennial "Zom-Com" films such as "Shaun of the Dead", "Warm Bodies" and "Zombieland" but also straightforward Zombie films, like George E. Romero's 2005 "Land of the Dead". It's story centers around the "Park" family owning a gas station that take a young man, Hyon-woo" (nicknamed later as "Jongbie, the Pet") who develops "zombie" characteristic behavior. The family consists of a married couple (with wife expecting), their father plus a young girl, "Hae-Gul" in which "Jongbie" develops a crush on. The obvious enemy here is an illegal pharmaceutical company called "Human Bio", doing experiments on humans... does this plot sound familiar to you? Again, if you like these referenced films, Min-Jae's film is for you. Otherwise, he does not offer anything new or original here. But the quality of acting, set production and special effects are very good. In its Midwest premiere, Min-Jae stated that his wife co-wrote the script and that the fact "zombies" belong to Haitian Vodou. He further said that in fact, the idea of the "living dead" can be also found in Korean lore. When asked if there will be a sequel, he said (in a joking manner) maybe when the baby character grows up to be 20 years old... he will pursue a sequel! If you are interested on an international perspective on how filmmakers have taken on the "zombie" genre, then "The Odd Family, Zombie on Sale" is for you!

A rather adorable little zombie comedy

I suppose the word that comes to mind when I think about this film is "offbeat". It's a zombie film that isn't really scary. It's a comedy but has a kind of hangdog feel. None of the characters is terribly attractive, let alone glamorous. But somehow I found a lot of things to like about The Odd Family. For a start, I was quite taken with the look of it, with its lush green expanses outdoors and its convincingly old-fashioned, cluttered interiors. I also thought the film was put together and paced in a very coherent way, so, even though there weren't any exciting action scenes or dramatic confrontations, I was still carried along by the story. The ensemble cast worked well together; it looked like all of them had cast vanity to the four winds and completely entered into the spirit of their very ordinary, even lumpen characters. And, lastly, I did enjoy the story and the way the family members (including the new addition, the zombie) interacted with each other. So, although its wry, lowkey charms may not be obvious to everyone, I do recommend this film for an evening's gentle entertainment,
