    Director Kanzo Matsuura explains, "This is a series based on,aruguably, a simple concept of a beautiful woman fighting horrible monsters. A number of B-horror films using this idea have been made in the American film industry, but I think they are comparatively rare in Japan. As I really like this genre, I decided to stick to a straightforward narrative in making the film so that no details as to the terrifying zombie make-ups and the beautiful heroine should be neglected. The film’s star Miss Ai Kawanaka has cute looks and big breasts and she is perfect as a heroine of horror movie. The film’s highlight is of course the battles between the heroine and the zombies."
