    One Cut Of The Dead

    This just played at the MAMI festival to pretty rave reviews.

    "Things go badly for a hack director and film crew shooting a low budget zombie movie in an abandoned WWII Japanese facility, when they are attacked by real zombies."

    Rock! Shock! Pop!

    Very positive review here:

    This sounds fun even if I'm pretty burnt out on zombie movies.

    It`s been a huge phenomena in Japan: a film shot with absolutely no money (I think I read the cast had to pay their own expenses of being in the film and received no salary) and that was lucky to get any kind of theatrical release at all... it started in a few indie cinemas, then later multiplexes started booking it and showing it on their biggest screens. Now it`s been booked to approx 350 theaters so far.

    To provide comparison point, Venom will open on roughly 350 screens. Mandy, which will open next week, has been booked to 18 cinemas so far. Tsukamoto`s upcoming Killing has about 40 theaters.

    With my antipathy for new JP indies, I still haven`t dared to watch it.

    Oh and why is this in "International" and not "Asian" board?

    I've been wanting to check this out. TWF has the rights & they plan a dvd/blu ray release early next year in the UK.

    A week or two back, I'd seen someone tweet that a whole bunch of Hong Kong films are up on Amazon Prime and looking at them it is clear they are bootlegs.

    Well, I finally saw this a few weeks ago and guess what? It's fucking brilliant!

    I was initially put off by the trailer (among other things), but it turned out it was composed of footage from the film's first third in order not to spoil the other two. And that's the way it should be! The 1st third is good, but the rest is golden!

    Interesting article about the piracy/Amazon issue.
