One Cut of the Dead


2018 • Shin’ichirô Ueda w/Takayuki Hamatsu, Yuzuki Akiyama, Harumi Shuhama, Kazuaki Nagaya, Hiroshi Ichihara, Mao • 96 min • DCP

The zombie film that became an international sensation is finally coming to the Brattle! Beginning with a bravura 40-minute single-take-shot, ONE CUT OF THE DEAD is a meta-zombie-comedy like no other. The film opens with a hack director shooting a cheesy, low-budget zombie flick at an abandoned warehouse – only to have real zombies show up and start terrorizing the cast and crew, much to his delight. Once the first shot ends, the film flips perspective, flashing back to the beginning again and exposing the ‘reality’ of the situation and the backstories of the characters. Impossibly charming and an instant cult hit, ONE CUT OF THE DEAD is not to be missed on the big screen – and this special one-night, nationwide screening is a great opportunity to see it with an appreciative crowd.

“The Best Zombie Comedy Since Shaun of the Dead!”

“Marvelously inventive… breathes new life into the zombie genre.”

“I’ve never seen anything quite like ONE CUT OF THE DEAD. A sublime, almost religious, experience that reminds me why I love movies.”
