One Cut of the Dead (2017)

I don't want to say too much, because you should TRULY go into this totally blind - like we did.
We picked this movie as a quick dirty throw away movie - zombie found footage foreign film? Sounds like fun. We had no idea what to expect.
And we were BLOWN AWAY.
I am so impressed with how witty, clever, and different this film was.
The opening scene IS one cut, and it's a 37-minute uncut scene. The acting is so well done, and it only took them 6 attempts in 2 days to film that scene. In fact, the entire movie was filmed in 8 days!
I'm obsessed with this and I will recommend it to everyone I know.
Go into it without watching any videos, reading any reviews, or watching any trailers. Enjoy the twists and turns. Enjoy your lightbulbs going off. Enjoy the film style, acting, and the unique nature of the story.
This cost them $25,000 to make, most of the cast members paid to act in it. This film made $25,000,000. They deserved every penny of it.
