One Cut of the Dead
(Dir. Shinichiro Ueda, 2017, Japan, 97 min)

One Cut of the Dead opens in a run-down, abandoned warehouse where a film crew are making a zombie film…yet, this is no ordinary warehouse.  It’s been said that it’s the site of where military experiments took place…and out of nowhere, real zombies arrive and terrorize the crew!

This may sound like a the plot of a clichéd zombie film, but One Cut of the Dead is something completely different!  Starting off with a non-stop one-take 37 minute shot, the film then completely switches direction and turns the zombie genre upside down into a charming, audience-friendly comedy!  A $300K budgeted indie that has gone on to gross over $30 million worldwide.

“Shinichiro Ueda’s marvelously inventive horror-comedy breathes new life into the zombie genre.” – Variety

“Not only the best zombie comedy in years, but it’s also the best movie about indie film-making in decades.” – FilmSchoolRejects

“The Best Zombie Comedy Since Shaun of the Dead.” – Indiewire

“I’ve never seen anything quite like One Cut of the Dead. A sublime, almost religious, experience that reminds me why I love movies.” – ScreenAnarchy
