Critical reception[edit]
On Rotten Tomatoes, the film holds a 100% Certified Fresh approval rating based on 83
reviews, with an average rating of 8.57/10. The site's critical consensus states, "Brainy
and bloody in equal measure, One Cut of the Dead reanimates the moribund zombie
genre with a refreshing blend of formal daring and clever satire." [11] Metacritic reports an
86 out of 100 score, based on 14 reviews, indicating "universal acclaim". [12]
Writing for Variety, Richard Kuipers declared the film to be a "marvelously inventive
horror-comedy [that] breathes new life into the zombie genre", and attributed its success
to "its irresistibly bouncy spirit [...] it positively sparkles with the infectious “C’mon
everyone, let’s put on a show!” enthusiasm that’s served the movies so well since the
days of Andy Hardy."[2] Elizabeth Kerr of The Hollywood Reporter found the film to be "a
breezy and often laugh-out-loud hilarious zombie comedy", noting that although the film
"sags in the second act as it sets up the third, it’s not so much that it loses all the steam
it generated out of the gate."[1] David Ehrlich of IndieWire, opined that the film was "so
heartfelt and hilarious that it’s easy to forgive the contrivances that hold it together, and
to overlook how transparently Ueda reverse-engineers most of his best gags.
Seemingly unimportant details in the film’s sluggish middle section blossom into killer
jokes some 30 minutes later"[13]
