In an abandoned building, a low-budget zombie horror film is falling apart on set. The abusive director is already pushing the cast and crew to the brink with his obnoxious behavior when he reveals his plan to inject energy and excitement into the project: unlocking a real-life ancient zombie curse. In a frenetic one-shot where body parts and fluids are flying, the actors fight the undead and their director for their lives before the film comes to a shocking conclusion and the credits roll...but is that the whole story?
Academy Award–winning writer-director Michel Hazanavicius brings one of the most innovative, joyful, and funniest love letters to film and filmmaking you’ll ever see. Adapted from the cult Japanese box office hit One Cut of The Dead by Shinichiro Ueda.
