You are just going to have to trust me on this one, because it’s a slow burn. One Cut of the Dead rewards patient viewing. If you are into zombie movies, you have to watch this. If you are not into zombie movies, you also have to watch this. And if you are a drama geek, you absolutely have to watch this. It’s really best you go into this one cold, but here’s a trailer. Watch that first if you must.

Best to go straight to the film.

Find the movie. Start watching it. Keep watching it until the video stops playing. Stay through the credits. Do it. Trust me. There’s a reason people have gone bonkers over this movie, although it will escape you at first.

Then, once you have watched it, give me a ping on Facebook or Twitter and we can talk about it. But right now you have homework.
