One Cut Of The Dead
The Japanese zombie comedy sensation finally makes its way to the US in an exclusive ONE NIGHT ONLY screening! Come see the film that horror fans are calling the new Shaun Of The Dead, and that filmmakers of all stripes are hailing as one of the best-ever films about making movies.
A cast of relative unknowns, a brilliantly disguised low budget and an epic, 37-minute opening single take makes Shin’ichirô Ueda’s feature debut a bright, breezy and laugh-out-loud hilarious zombie comedy. A film crew is shooting a zombie horror flick in an abandoned water filtration plant, allegedly used for human experiments by the military. Just as the director browbeats his actors and demands more special effects blood, a real zombie apocalypse erupts, much to his auteur delight. Packed with meta-movie references as mocking as they are loving, this relentless takedown of the Living Dead genre is a total blast.
“Drunk on its own DIY energy and deeply in love with everything it’s doing, One Cut of the Dead is a euphoric ode to the chaos (and compromises) of genre filmmaking.” – Indiewire
“A genuinely clever and loving tribute to cinema at its most homemade.” – Little White Lies
