One Cut Of The Dead Movie Poster
(44 Reviews)


The film 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 terrorise the crew! This may sound like 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!

Rating of 100% on Rotten Tomatoes.

"It is an ultra low-budget Japanese film featuring a zombie apocalypse and it is often very, very funny." - Yip Wai Yee, The Straits Times

"The perfect antidote to zombie fever." - Elizabeth Kerr, Hollywood Reporter

"It's a movie that rescues the tired zombie trope - without insisting on metaphor or satire." - Peter Bradshaw, Guardian

Ecstatic. Highly recommend especially for those who love comedy. Bravo to the cameraman who is holding the camera for so long. Impressive acting and the idea is so fresh.

Very good

Look like a cheap movie at the beginning. But it is very talent movie if you watch it till the end. This is a budget movie but hard to create it.

“One Cut” captures all the craziness and exhilaration of movie-making on a minuscule budget. There are multiple axes in play. The cast is phenomenal throughout. Ueda presents us with a simple, short zombie film.

Bringing a fresh take of the horror film genre, this movie starts off as another horror show, but stick on after the middle, and that's where this film shows off it's true colours. You MUST watch it with no initial understanding of the plot at all to enjoy it fully.

A love letter to low-budget flicks, laugh out loud horror/zombie tropes and just plain entertaining. The dissapointment you feel is the key to enjoying the entire show.
