It’s not often that a punk band makes a film past the ’70s, let alone a horror film. In their answer to a Japanese Rock ‘n’ Roll High School, Guitar Wolf set out to make one of the most bizarre and hilarious zombie films ever created: Wild Zero. In addition, there’s enough flaming mics, head explosions, ear-piercing guitar squeals, “baby, baby, baby” / “rock ‘n’ roll” belting, and constant…
