Synopsis

Here, in the horror theme park Zombillenium, the monsters are all feeling a bit glum.
Not only are the zombies, vampires, werewolves, and other demons real monsters whose souls belong to the Devil for all Eternity, but on top of that, they’re all fed up with their job, fed up with having to entertain the gawking, consumerist, selfish human tourists… In short, they’re tired of their daily routine, especially since they know it’s going to last forever… Until Hector comes onto the scene. He’s a human safety inspector and he’s determined to close down the establishment.
Francis, the director of the park, has no choice: he has to bite Hector in order to protect their secret.
Hector, transformed into an oddball monster, gets separated from his daughter Lucie, and finds himself trapped in the park. He is not a happy monster.
And what if he were to become the new star attraction of Zombillenium?...
