It's quite the fete to be repeatedly impressed by two halves of a film that are so aesthetically and narratively opposed, but also compliment each other so perfectly.

[One Cut Of The Dead is] smarter than it appears to be, is full of heart and laughs (and zombies), and is also a bit of a love letter to filmmaking.

Ueda's film goes on to indulge [its] curiosity in endless head-spinningly clever ways - turning a riotous genre treat into a full-hearted love-letter to both filmmaking and film-watching alike.

Shinichiro Ueda's innovative horror comedy proves there is still nourishment to be sucked from the zombie genre, if it's seasoned with a little heart and brains.

[It's] a refreshingly earnest film, with memorable characters and an unexpectedly sweet subplot that sees a father reconnecting with his teenage daughter over their shared love of horror movies.

One Cut of the Dead is a low-budget masterpiece that's just waiting to charm you to death - then bring you back to life so it can do it all again.
September 25, 2018
Ueda's bending of tone and style eludes conventional genre classifications, but all the elements mesh fantastically and coherently together.
September 24, 2018

Romero by way of Wes Anderson and Ed Wood, One Cut of the Dead is a fun-filled entry into the zombie archives. Come for the incredible opening, stay for the quirky humour and kitsch charm.

Its key strength is to take the zombie genre and tip it on its side.

The rallying spirit here is as moving as any 'Rocky' triumph, and it's compounded by the surprisingly sweet father-daughter story at the movie's core.

The only thing more fun than the 37-minute single-take opening is what comes next.
August 6, 2018
Drunk on its own DIY energy and deeply in love with everything it's doing, One Cut of the Dead is a euphoric ode to the chaos (and compromises) of genre filmmaking.

August 1, 2018
One Cut of the Dead is a hilarious ode to creativity, family, perseverance, and the challenge of filmmaking, that's almost -- almost -- too clever for its own good.
July 31, 2018
One Cut of the Dead is one of the most ingenious deconstructions of backstage satire in recent years.
July 30, 2018
in this postmodern deconstruction of low-budget genre filmmaking,... the more haphazard and impromptu the production seems, the more sophisticated and metacinematic One Cut Of The Dead - or at least Ueda's One Cut Of The Dead - proves to be.
June 20, 2018
Filmed with a crazed energy and headlong pace, its big joke being the nutty director obsessed with his art in the middle of chaos.
