[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.

It's an ingenious, chaotic and bonkers breath of fresh air in a genre rife with imitations.

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.

Shinichiro Ueda's zombie comedy is one that purposefully pretends to offer familiar zombie schlock only to rip the rug out from under us in an innovative, hilarious way. The level of detail is uncanny, and the comedy is equally matched by charm.

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.
January 4, 2019
As much a repudiation of auteur theory as a tribute to the imperfect process of creation, One Cut of the Dead is a thrilling reminder that of the beautiful, vital lie that is cinema.

[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.

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.
