One Cut of the Dead
Saturday, Jul 2 at 6:00 pm
July 2: Redstone Theater
July 10: Bartos Screening Room
Dir. Shinichiro Ueda. Japan. 2017, 91 mins. DCP. With Takayuki Hamatsu, Mao, Harumi Shuhama, Yuzuki Akiyama, Kazuaki Nagaya. In Japanese with English subtitles. An independent film crew making a low-budget zombie film encounters real-life zombies on the set. Rather than running for their lives, our fearless director Higurashi (Hamatsu) demands the cast and crew fight off the corps of corpses while capturing it all for their film. And that’s only half the story! One Cut of the Dead offers possibly the freshest take on the zombie film since Night of the Living Dead, evoking the original’s maverick creativity, while also providing the heart and charm so often missing from the modern horror movie.
July 2: DOUBLE FEATURE includes admission to Night of the Living Dead.
Tickets: $15 / $11 senior and students / $9 youth (ages 3–17) / Free or discounted for MoMI members ($7-11). Order tickets. Please pick up tickets at the Museum’s admissions desk upon arrival. All seating is general admission. Review safety protocols before your visit.
Ticketholders may add on a visit to the Living with the Walking Dead exhibition for $10.
