NOW SHOWING (almost) WORLDWIDE

One Cut of the Dead, the zombie comedy and festival darling that conquered audiences around the world thanks to ̶b̶i̶t̶e̶s̶ word of mouth at renowned genre festivals such as Fantasia, Fantastic Fest, Sitges, BiFan, Haapsalu, BIFFF and many more, is now showing (almost) worldwide.
This (soon to be a cult classic) is the kind of film that you're friends will think you're insane during the first act, but when the rug is suddenly pulled, they won't be able to stop laugh and cry at the insanity of the script and execution. The film starts off with a 37 minute long single take and that's just the beginning of this roller coaster ride.
