Adapted from a celebrated series of graphic novels by co-director Arthur de Pins, this fiendishly entertaining animated feature images the one place in this world where monsters can feel free from persecution. Located in an industrial town in Northern France, Zombillénium is an amusement park overseen by werewolves, vampires and, of course, zombies, all of whom pretend to be ordinary folks in monstrous guises. It’s shady business as usual until a health and safety inspector—and amateur guitar wizard—begins scouring the grounds for a code violation and finds something rather more satanic than stray hair in the candy floss.
With its instantly charming character design, dazzling sense of movement and twisty plot, Zombillénium generates a ghoulishly good time out of one man’s descent into a teeming monster mash.
