RLJE Films, a business unit of AMC Networks, has picked up select rights to Shudder’s, AMC Networks’ streaming service for horror, thriller and the supernatural, ONE CUT OF THE DEAD, which will be released on June 2, 2020 on DVD and DVD/Blu-ray SteelBook.
Written and directed by Shin'ichirô Ueda (Special Actors), the horror/comedy stars Harumi Shuhama (Ichigo no uta), Takayuki Hamatsu (“Followers”), and Yuzuki Akiyama (“Kamen raidâ Jiô”). The film is based on the play, “Ghost in the Box!” written by Ryoichi Wada. RLJE Films will release ONE CUT OF THE DEAD on DVD and on DVD/Blu-ray SteelBook.
In ONE CUT OF THE DEAD, while shooting a low-budget zombie film in an abandoned warehouse, the crew find themselves caught between actual zombies and a mad director who won’t stop rolling. If you think you know what happens next, think again. Filmmaker Shinichiro Ueda turns the film on its head more than once for one of the wildest, funniest, and most surprising zombie movies of all time.
RLJE Films’ recent features include the critically acclaimed hit Mandy from writer/director Panos Cosmatos and starring Nicolas Cage, Andrea Riseborough and Linus Roache; The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then The Bigfoot written and directed by Robert Krzykowski and starring Academy Award nominee Sam Elliott, Aidan Turner and Ron Livingston.
