ONE CUT OF THE DEAD d. Shin’ichirô Ueda, 2017 presented & introduced by The Evolution of Horror podcast (30 MAR 21:00) / Part of ONE AND DONE at Genesis Cinema:

“A cast of relative unknowns, a brilliantly disguised low budget and an epic, 37-minute opening single take makes Shin’ichirô Ueda’s feature debut a bright, breezy and laugh-out-loud hilarious zombie comedy. A film crew is shooting a zombie horror flick in an abandoned water filtration plant, allegedly used for human experiments by the military. Just as the director browbeats his actors and demands more special effects blood, a real zombie apocalypse erupts, much to his auteur delight. Packed with meta-movie references as mocking as they are loving, this relentless takedown of the Living Dead genre is a total blast.” (Genesis Cinema)
