n an abandoned warehouse, a film crew is making a low-budget zombie film. During breaks in shooting, they share rumours about how the warehouse was once used for actual human experiments. The shoot is interrupted when real-life zombies show up and begin attacking the crew. The survivors find themselves fending off not only an undead horde but a psychotic director intent on capturing the chaos on camera. All of this initially unfolds in one long, unbroken take – but One Cut of the Dead has a few unexpected tricks up its sleeve…

To say much more about the plot would be to do a disservice to a film that frequently reinvents itself in delightful ways. Suffice to say it’s a zombie film with a difference and plenty of surprises. One Cut of the Dead makes the most out of its micro-budget, and it’s an instant classic from first-time director Shinichiro Ueda. Starring: Harumi Shuhama, Kazuaki Nagaya, Mao, Takayuki Hamatsu
