The premise is simple—a group of young people in a small time must battle hordes of disgusting zombies, an epidemic caused by aliens with the suspected goal of invading Earth. The protagonists —former medicine student Bill Johnson, wrestler John West and mathematician Max Giggs— have to take care of a situation they cannot handle, resorting to their strength and inventiveness in order to destroy the zombies and avoid becoming zombiefied themselves. From this idea, Hernán Sáez and Pablo Parés built a gore-filled amateur film with grotesque humor and homemade special effects that achieved cult status—a key film for FARSA Producciones and Argentine fantastical cinema in general.
