One Cut of The Dead (2019) – A Revisited Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
One Cut of The Dead is a Japanese Zombie film with a massive difference. And to discuss that I need to go into a few spoilers.  So I’ll say this first: One Cut of The Dead is really good and, if you love Zombie movies, this is a VERY clever and unique take on that.  Reading on from here? There be SPOILERS.  Probably not since Shaun of The Dead has a Zombie film subverted the genre quite as well as One Cut of The Dead does. Okay so it’s not THAT good (Shaun is a true masterpiece) but still One Cut is super clever with it’s three act structure that pulls the rug from under you more than once.  No doubt you’ll start by going “Wait… what the hell is he talking about. This shit is CHEAP” but I urge you to let that play out because pretty quickly you’ll see all isn’t quite what you think. It’s VERY are you get something unique in this genre but One Cut of The Dead really is something you haven’t seen before.

Best Bit: Oh wait. Oh Nice.

Buy, Stream, Avoid: Buy
