    There is a lot of buzz about this film with Third Window marketing the heck out of it on Twitter. It had a limited theatrical tour in the UK (nowhere near me) but is available for preorder (release date Jan 28th 2019).

    "One Cut of the Dead" English...

    I think Amazon Prime got into trouble for allowing an unapproved version to be streamed on their service? Third Window soon nailed them for it.

    Anyone had a chance to watch this yet?

    Ah brilliant thanks. Yeah sounds like it might be fun and looks remarkably low budget from your screenshot. Think I'll take a punt as I do have a soft spot for quirky Japanese cinema. Thanks.

    Yeah it is very low budget but also very imaginative and funny in places, I'd definitely watch it again and will be picking up the Blu somewhere along the line.

    I've had my eye on this for quite a while, will definitely be picking it up.

    Robbie Collin certainly liked it :

    He did but I think his review has spoilers. This is a film best enjoyed "blind."

    I absolutely loved this! One Cut of the Dead is not the film you think it is. Watched it with a group; think we were all a bit wary to begin with but were in fits of laughter by the end.
