Plot
This film will require all your attention. Every detail matters. The first 37 minutes were shot with one camera, in one take, and that, in itself, considering the rhythm and special effects involved, is something to witness. Some filmmakers have attempted this in the past, but rarely with such accuracy. The first act is absolutely bonkers. It is incessant. It is a frantic masterpiece.
And then, there’s everything else. The second act will remain unspoiled, and the third one is nothing but twists. This is, simply put, one of the best and most creative horror films in history. One Cut of the Dead is a movie about people making a movie, and that doesn’t even begin to describe what awaits. The actors are sublime, but the first act only reveals a glimpse of their potential.
The thing is, the whole crew’s working miracles. The cameramen are giving all they have, which is an understatement considering what you’re signing up for. They’re extremely agile, precise, and only surpassed by the actors’ calculated yet vivid performances. One question resurfaces every five minutes: what the fuck are we watching? Answers will come. Better enjoy the ride till everything adds up!
