Synopsis
Higurashi, a timid Japanese movie director, is tasked with directing a one-take zombie film for live broadcast. With an offbeat and problematic cast questioning his vision, and network executives breathing down his neck, Higurashi is forced to bring his A-game into the project. On the day of the shoot, more complications arise, throwing everything and everyone even more off balance.

Persevere through the first 37 minutes of One Cut of the Dead, the absurdity of which will ultimately become significant. Seamlessly weaving together multiple genres, director Ueda Shinichiro presents an ode to filmmaking that simultaneously satirises the film and television industry. That balance is maintained even throughout the credits.
