Japanese Zom-Com ‘One Cut Of The Dead’ To Premiere On Shudder This Week
  |  @   |  

It’s a great time to be a Shudder subscriber. AMC’s horror and genre streaming service is hitting high gear as we inch closer towards October and Halloween season. Just last week, two Shudder Exclusives — The Cleansing Hour and Blood Machines — are screening at Fantastic Fest, while Hell House LLC III: Lake of Fire premiered on the service a few days ago. Well prepared to get spoiled because this week may be even bigger for Shudder. The eagerly anticipated Creepshow series from The Walking Dead executive producer Greg Nicotero debuts on 9/26. But if you can’t wait till Thursday, how about Tuesday? One of the most successful independent films of all time as well as an awesome and hilarious zombie comedy, One Cut of the Dead, will hit Shudder on Tuesday, 9/24.

Movie Review: One Cut Of The Dead
  |  @   |  

One Cut of the Dead
Written, directed, and edited by Shinichiro Ueda
Cast: Takayuki Hamatsu, Mao, Harumi Shuhama, Yuzuki Akiyama, Kazuaki Nagaya, Manabu Hosoi
Shudder | Variance Films
96 minutes | Not Rated
U.S. Release: September 13, 2019 (NY/LA)

Dan O’Bannon’s The Return of the Living Dead from 1985 is the first major case of the “Zom-Com,” the blending of zombie horror and comedy. A seminal classic about punks battling the undead in a cemetery, it’s not hard to find influence for Edgar Wright’s genre redefining Shaun of the Dead from 2004. While the zom-com has become prevalent in recent years with films like Zombieland (2009) and this year’s The Dead Don’t Die from Jim Jarmusch, the best of the lot by a mile is Shinichiro Ueda‘s One Cut of the Dead. The Japanese zom-com first premiered last year, but is making its American theatrical release later this month. The word of mouth has been off the charts and I’m happy to say that all the hype was real and One Cut of the Dead can take its place on the Mount Rushmore of zombie comedies.

  |  @   |  

AMC’s horror streaming service Shudder has been killing it as of late. They made news last year when their Last Drive-In movie marathon with Joe Bob Briggs broke the internet, and led to Joe Bob’s full return as host of the now-weekly Last Drive-In series every Friday. They also have been bringing in tons of Shudder exclusives and originals, including the Nicolas Cage revenge film Mandy, which debuted on the service last year.

Now, Shudder continues to be a step ahead in the horror streaming game, acquiring the international rights to acclaimed Japanese zom-com One Cut of the Dead, from director Shinichiro Ueda.
