2017 Japanese zombie comedy film One Cut of the Dead カメラを止めるな!) back in Pittsburgh, October 18 - 23.

The 2017 Japanese zombie comedy film One Cut of the Dead (カメラを止めるな!), which first came to Pittsburgh in January and was part of the last Japanese Film Festival, will play in McKees Rocks from October 18 through 23. A 2018 Variety review says:
Viewers get three films for the price of one in “One Cut for the Dead,” a terrific Japanese horror-comedy that proves there’s somewhere the zombie apocalypse movie hasn’t yet gone. Writer-director-editor Shinichiro Ueda’s cleverly conceived and executed debut feature opens with an unbroken 37-minute shot of monster mayhem before hitting the reset button and turning into a funny satire of low-budget genre filmmaking — and eventually becoming a charming family comedy-drama. Packed with witty nods to classic horror movies, “One Cut” is a natural for genre fests and has such a warm and winning heart it could also fit into mainstream festival programs.
The movie runs from October 18 through 23 at the Parkway Theater in McKees Rocks (map). Showtimes are available via Facebook but tickets are not yet for sale.
