(Un)dead Japan: A genre analysis of the Japanese zombie film
Murphy, Kayleigh F. (2015) (Un)dead Japan: A genre analysis of the Japanese zombie film. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.
This study is an in-depth examination of the stylistic and generic characteristics of the Japanese zombie film and its relations to Japanese horror cinema and the conventions and tropes of Western zombie movies more generally. Through generic analysis of key Japanese zombie films released over the last 15 years, this study establishes the sub-genre's ties to transnational production practices and cult cinema. The first monograph length study of this kind, this study provides insight into the growing sub-genre of Japanese zombie films while concurrently broadening current scholarship and understanding of the zombie film genre.
