Filmmaker Issa López creates a world that recalls the early films of Guillermo del Toro, imbued with her own gritty urban spin on magical realism to conjure a wholly unique experience that audiences will not soon forget.

One Cut of the Dead

Sep 27 to Sep 28
Friday and Saturday 10:30pm

Dir. Shinichirou Ueda - 2019 - 96m - Japan - In Japanese with English Subtitles - An ALIBI MIDNIGHT MOVIE MADNESS special - $8 gen / $6 stu

WINNER - Audience Award AND Best Director, Fantastic Fest plus over 14 Audience Awards

"A-: the best zombie comedy since Shaun of the Dead. A euphoric ode to the chaos (and compromises) of genre filmmaking: it's the kind of movie that makes you want to pick up a camera, call some friends, and shoot the end of the world on your own terms." - DAVID EHRLICH, Indiewire

"Three films for the price of one- a terrific Japanese horror-comedy that proves there's somewhere the zombie apocalypse movie hasn't yet gone." - RICHARD KUIPERS, Variety

"Does something many, including this writer, didn't think was possible... it reinvents the zombie movie." - KATIE RIFE, AV Club 

A cast of relative unknowns, a brilliantly disguised low budget and an epic, 37-minute opening single take makes Shin'ichiro Ueda's feature debut a bright, breezy and laugh-out-loud hilarious zombie comedy. A film crew is shooting a zombie horror flick in an abandoned water filtration plant, allegedly used for human experiments by the military. Just as the director browbeats his actors and demands more special effects blood, a real zombie apocalypse erupts, much to his auteur delight. Packed with meta-movie references as mocking as they are loving, this relentless takedown of the Living Dead genre is a total blast.
