Brainy and bloody in equal measure, One Cut of the Dead reanimates the zombie genre with a refreshing blend of splatter, visual ingenuity and biting satire.

ONE CUT OF THE DEAD opens in a run-down, abandoned warehouse where a film crew are making a zombie film…Out of nowhere, real zombies arrive and terrorise the crew! This may sound like a the plot of a cliched 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!

Did You Know? Original title "Kamera wo tomeru na!" in Japanese means "Don't stop shooting!"
