ONE CUT OF THE DEAD opens in a run-down, abandoned warehouse where a film crew are making a zombie film…out of nowhere, real zombies arrive and terrorize the crew!
This may sound like a the plot of a clichéd zombie film, but One Cut of the Dead is something completely different! Starting off with a non-stop one-take 37 minute shot, the film then completely switches direction and turns the zombie genre completely upside down.
See for yourself how this tiny student project costing $27k became a world-wide phenomenon and ended up grossing over $30m.
