Japanese Zombie Comedy One Cut Of The Dead

AMC’s horror streaming service Shudder has been killing it as of late. They made news last year when their Last Drive-In movie marathon with Joe Bob Briggs broke the internet, and led to Joe Bob’s full return as host of the now-weekly Last Drive-In series every Friday. They also have been bringing in tons of Shudder exclusives and originals, including the Nicolas Cage revenge film Mandy, which debuted on the service last year.

Now, Shudder continues to be a step ahead in the horror streaming game, acquiring the international rights to acclaimed Japanese zom-com One Cut of the Dead, from director Shinichiro Ueda.

Made for only $27,000, One Cut of the Dead, which went by the original Japanese title Kamera o tomeru na!, has grossed $28 million in Japan and $30 million worldwide and currently sits at 100% on Rotten Tomatoes. The film will be releasing on Shudder later this year in the U.S., Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.

Here’s the film synopsis, per Shudder:

Shinichiro Ueda’s One Cut of the Dead starts with a film crew shooting a zombie movie who stumble into an actual zombie outbreak—all shot in a single, 37-minute take. From there, the story widens its focus, transforming into a comedic love letter to the spirit of indie filmmaking that conjures up unstoppable ingenuity in the face of overwhelming odds.

One Cut of the Dead’s wild, crowd-pleasing final 30 minutes reframes everything you thought you saw in an outrageous new light. The film’s cast, mostly non-professionals, is led by Harumi Shuhama, Kazuaki Nagaya, Mao and Takayuki Hamatsu.

An English-language remake of the film is also in the works, from Japan-based American producer Patrick Cunningham.

A go-to destination for horror fans of all ages and true cinephiles as well, Shudder is only $49.99 a year or $4.99 a month and you can check it out with 7-day free tryout by going to shudder.com.
