100% Certified Fresh! “Brainy and bloody in equal measure, One Cut of the Dead reanimates the moribund zombie genre with a refreshing blend of formal daring and clever satire.” (Rotten Tomatoes)
“the best zombie comedy since Shaun of the Dead. A euphoric ode to the chaos (and compromises) of genre filmmaking: it’s the kind of movie that makes you want to pick up a camera, call some friends, and shoot the end of the world on your own terms.” (Indiewire)
“Three films for the price of one- a terrific Japanese horror-comedy that proves there’s somewhere the zombie apocalypse movie hasn’t yet gone.” (Variety)
“Does something many, including this writer, didn’t think was possible… it reinvents the zombie movie.”
