One Cut of the Dead Kamera o tomeru na!

Shin'ichirô Ueda / Japan / 2017 / 96 min / Japanese

A comedy horror film proving that even the zombie apocalypse genre can be raised from the dead. A satire of low-budget filmmaking, which gets very complicated when the cast gets drunk, and even more, when they start becoming real zombies themselves.

A small crew with a director – who has a screw loose – is shooting a low-budget zombie flick in an abandoned factory where the Japanese Army experimented with reanimation of dead bodies during WWII. It doesn’t take long before the actors and crew start changing into real live corpses themselves. The perfectionist director refuses to cancel the shoot and, obsessed by a fixation on “true art”, he runs about filming while the zombie epidemic claims one victim after another. He seems willing to sacrifice it all to get the perfect shot.

“This film was so hard, it was nothing but trouble trying to make it! /…/ In the script we had planned some things to go wrong for the fictional crew, but on top of that we had a lot of other things that went wrong while we were filming the one shot. There’s a moment where blood splashed on the camera, it looked planned but that happened completely by chance and someone really had to wipe it off the screen. We had planned for some things to go wrong, and then we had other things go wrong in reality, so we ended up amalgamating the two into the film. I think if we had scripted everything then it wouldn’t have been as exciting.” (Shin'ichirô Ueda)
