Oscar winner Michel Hazanavicius’ remake of Shin’ichirô Ueda’s cult hit One Cut of the Dead follows a director charged with making a live, single-take, low-budget zombie flick in which the cast and crew, one by one, actually turn into zombies. The abusive director is pushing the cast and crew to the brink with obnoxious behaviour, and things really start to go wrong when he reveals his plan to inject more energy into the project by unlocking a real ancient curse! With body parts and fluids flying—the actors fight the undead, and their director, before the film comes to a shocking conclusion and the credits roll. “…a genuine oddity, ostensibly about cinema, but more about the live theatre experience. It may yet have found a way to breathe new life into the zombie genre itself.” —The Guardian
