Against the backdrop of a zombie-infested post-apocalyptic landscape, a former cop searches for a supernatural serial killer who, should it be killed, can transfer its spirit from one body to the next, in Davi de Oliveira Pinheiro’s thoroughly entertaining zombie flick-cum-western-cum-samurai actioner-cum-existential road movie-cum-paranormal fantasy. Beautiful, languorous pacing, potent imagery, unpredictable plotting, and a bold use of music combine to striking effect.
