“One Cut of the Dead”: The Horror News Network Review

Ever since I’ve heard the buzz from last year’s Fantastic Fest, I’ve been looking forward to seeing One Cut of the Dead; thankfully, my anticipation was not in vain. Shot on a micro-budget of $25,000 by writer/director Shin’ichirô Ueda, One Cut of the Dead (or Kamera o Tomeru na!) stars Hamatsu Takayuki as Higurashi, the angry/violent director of a low-budget zombie film featuring teenagers Chinastu (Akiyama Yuzuki) and Ko (Nagaya Kazuaki).

When Higurashi becomes irate at the lack of energy he feels that he’s getting from his female lead Chinatsu, he violently stops the shoot and storms off after pushing Ko out of the way. While the cast is on a break, waiting for the director to cool off and come back to the shoot, the teens are having a chat session with makeup artist Nao (Syuhama Harumi) about local legends and curses when suddenly real zombies attack the set! read more
