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…
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 completely upside down into a charming, audience-friendly comedy!
Young director Shinichiro Ueda and his cast of non-professionals have
created something fresh and entertaining which has become both a massive hit
not just in Japan, but across the world!
