One Cut of the Dead (2018)

Shin’ichirô Ueda directs Takayuki Hamatsu, Yuzuki Akiyama and Harumi Shuhama in this one-shot zombie horror that then turns into a behind the scenes farce.

Shifts from bloodletting to heart warming with minimal fuss. This is a funny, affectionate and gory tribute to low budget horror ingenuity. Moments that feel like wobbles and mistakes earlier are explained later with playful abandon. A treat fuelled by the sweet and game lead performances by Harumi Shuhama and Takayuki Hamatsu.
