Zombies in the Streets! How I Survived ‘One Cut of the Dead’ in Tokyo on Halloween Night

Shinichiro Ueda’s One Cut of the Dead is the little zombie movie that could. Made on a shoestring budget of about $27,000, the Japanese film turned worldwide festival favorite has since earned back a whopping 1,000 times its budget . Its box office numbers would be a victory by any measure, but they’re especially vindicating for a movie that initially opened in just one small Tokyo theater for a six-day run. They’d also have to be vindicating for Ueda, a 34-year-old first-time feature filmmak...

10 Must-See Modern Cult Classics

Others say cult films must deal with taboos, such as graphic violence or explicit sex. Many believe that a cult film must be panned by critics. Others believe that a major studio flop, which receives a second life due to cable, DVDs, and streaming services, counts as a cult film. Unintentionally funny, “so bad ...
