“A master class in endless narrative inventiveness and an ode to the resourceful and collaborative spirit of hands-on filmmaking, One Cut of the Dead amounts to an explosively hilarious rarity.” – Carlos Aguilar, Los Angeles Times
While shooting a low-budget zombie film in an abandoned warehouse, the crew find themselves caught between actual zombies and a mad director who won’t stop rolling. If you think you know what happens next, think again. Shot on a budget of only $25,000, One Cut of the Dead has grossed over $30 million at the box office and has been heralded as the “best zombie comedy since Shaun of the Dead.” Credit writer-director Shinichiro Ueda who turns the film on its head more than once for one of the wildest, funniest, and most surprising zombie movies of all time.
