- The blood splash on the camera and the hand wiping it off is real and not a post-production effect.
- When the assistant is sitting on the floor clutching a severed arm, you can clearly see one of the crew members standing in the background.

It’s chaos, but it’s controlled chaos (even if only just), and in the chaos there’s absolute joy.
For me, One Cut of the Dead is good enough. It sometimes surprised me while I waited for a payoff that Ueda basically delivered, even if he and his collaborators never made me involuntarily leave my seat.
One Cut wears its cheapness as a badge of honor, a tricky endeavor given its actual production polish; make-up effects by Kazuhide Simohata and Jyunko Hirabayashi go a long way to supplying the film-within-the-film its guerilla feel. But the pic's best effect is its ability to ensure the same jokes land just as well in their second contexts.
