ONE CUT OF THE DEAD, made as a workshop project on a tiny budget, charmed millions in Japan and across the world on its way to becoming the surprise hit movie of 2018!
We are delighted to welcome Harumi Shuhama, one of the stars of this fascinating film, part zombie-fest, part laugh-out-loud comedy, and even with some surprisingly powerful emotional tugs thrown in for good measure, to the HYPER Live!
