A family and their maid are going about their daily lives when, unexpectedly, a woman bursts into their home shouting, "They're coming!" She then vomits out her organs, turns into a zombie, and attacks the master of the house. The maid saves her employer, but he and his daughter are stunned and have difficulty processing the events. As more and more zombies invade the residence, the maid decides it is her duty to defend the house from unwanted guests—using a chainsaw!

Watch this.

To be fully honest, I’m not exactly regretting the time I spent watching this. It did capture my interest and I was eager to see how the creators played with time here. That in mind, I decided to watch this - after all it was an easy find on youtube. ...

No vocals but sound effects. There is a couple lines of English subbed text

Basic invasion. Has a good ending.

Well done clay art/animation. Would have done slightly better in a darker setting. There was a moment of two of unneeded replays.
