There are no villains, no romantic love story, no political statement, and no action scenes, just a film about a man’s ambitious endeavor. The comedy all hits its mark, and they are genuinely creative with the way it’s handled.

The crew and cast of a low-budget zombie movie called One Cut of the Dead shoot at an abandoned water filtration plant in the first chapter. The producer debates and finally leaves the actors. To the joy of Higurashi, who demands that the camera operator continue to film of an actual zombie apocalypse suddenly begins.

Cast:                   Tak Sakaguchi, Hideo Sakaki and Others

Release date:     October 29, 2000

Running time:    120 minutes

Budget :              $10,000

Ratings:              IMDb (6.4), Rotten Tomaotoes (71%),

Why: Imagine you are down to watch a gritty, humorous action movie. You have got a really lovely lead character who has a secret background, of course. He shoots someone first, and suddenly the dead person becomes a zombie and has weapons. This is already the finest in the Japanese zombie movies of all time. The music is the best, and the camerawork is fantastic. It is like a horror/action video game turned into a movie, with lots of blood and huge action to sum up the film.

Versus

Plot: This Japanese zombie movie was initially intended as a sequel to Kitamura’s Down to Hell but was later developed as a stand-alone film. Principal photography was initially designed to last three weeks but was extended to 7 months due to weather and financial issues. As we know it, the main story revolves around the human world, and there are pathways to the other side of the world. Somewhere in Japan, known as The Forest of Resurrection, lies the portal to the other side.

Different plots carry to this place an escaped prisoner, a Yakuza fighting gang, and a mystery child. The door to the portal will open when the buried dead wake up like zombies, but why and what will happen when the gateway opens? This forms the zombie movie’s plot as a mystery.

He investigates a sequence of unusual murders in which each victim is executed in the same pattern, with a big “X” carved into his throat, but each time the criminal is different. The killers are found close to the crime scene in every case, and while they readily admit to committing the murders, they never have a significant motive and cannot describe what led them to murder.

Takabe finally learns, along with a psychologist, that one guy is the common link among the murders, as shortly after that, every person he comes into contact with commits a killing. There seems to be serious short-term memory loss for the man named Mamiya; he still seems puzzled about which day it is, what he is doing, and his name.

Box office:           Unknown

Ratings:               IMDb (6.3), Rotten Tomaotoes (44%)

Why: The movie has exceptional performances. Even though some themes depicted in the movie can be disturbing for some audiences, it is a very maturely made film from other Japanese zombie movies. Moreover, the ending will leave you speechless!. I appreciated the concept but must recommend watching this movie.

Miss Zombie

Plot: This movie starts somewhere in Japan when a wealthy family buys a zombie to be their housemaid. They understand it can be deadly, so if the zombie becomes violent, there is also a gun in the “zombie’s kit” along with the user’s manual. But they were informed that, since there are many forms of zombies, this particular zombie is peaceful; it depends on the degree of their zombie infection. Does this sound odd?

Well, this movie is weird! Nevertheless, the point where it uses the zombie dilemma as a metaphor is also impressive! It does not have anything to do with any zombie movie I’ve ever seen. It’s almost a poetic film about zombies! The shot of this Japanese zombie movie is completely in black and white, which enhances the impression of sadness and poetry.

Why: Many friends convinced me to watch this Zombie movie, but I regret it because it kept looking back as I felt that somebody was behind me. I didn’t sleep well for a long time and kept on having this terrible nightmare. I never watched such a horrible movie ever, and if you want to damage your life, go ahead and watch it. Haha, That’s was a joke. An excellent ghost story with believable characters and a compelling mystery, even though the third act’s impact is lessened due to over-exposure in pop-culture.
