Dead Sushi World Premiere – A Film By Nobori Iguchi Starring Rina Takeda

Prepare yourself for some hot wasabi action!

Karate Girl cutie, Rina Takeda, batters raw fish in Dead Sushi, the latest over-the-top splatter flick by Japanese cult director Noboru Iguchi (Machine Girl, Mutant Girl Squad, TOMIE: Unlimited).

Dead Sushi is the debut film from the new Japanese production company, Walker Pictures which gets its world premiere on Sunday, 22nd July 2012 at 19.30 at the Montreal Fantasia International Film Festival, one of the largest and most influential genre film festivals in the world. This will be followed by the Asia premiere that will be held in Korea on 26th and 27th July at the Puchon Fantastic Film Festival. Both Iguchi and Takeda will be making a personal appearance at the said events. Unfortunately they will not be attending the UK premiere which will take place (or should that be ‘plaice’) at midnight on August 26th at the Film4 FrightFest in London, at the Empire Cinema in Leicester Square.

This is one fish Rina Takeda should have thrown back.

Synopsis:

Keiko (Rina Takeda) is the daughter of a legendary sushi chef. Hoping to follow in his footsteps, she enters into training under her father’s guidance. His kung fulike regime is rigid, pushing her to impossible mental and physical limits and Keiko, unable to bear the strain, runs away from home. Finding work at a rural hot springs inn, she is dismayed to find that her co-workers are an eccentric lot who have it in for the new girl. Complicating matters is the arrival of a group of employees from Komatsu Pharmaceutical there to sample the inn’s famous specialty sushi. Following them in pursuit of revenge is Yamada (Kentaro Shimazu), a medical researcher betrayed by the Komatsu president. Disgruntled and seeking revenge, Yamada injects the hotel sushi with a drug that not only brings it to life, but also turns it into ferocious, bloodthirsty killers!

Right away, the reanimated sushi begins to kill off the hotel guests. Fatty tuna chews into human tongues; flesh-hungry salmon roe leaps about with gnashing fangs; and the sashimi pieces laid across the bodies of beautiful, semi-nude women devour them before the eyes of the stunned guests.

Panic ensues as the sushi multiplies, infecting humans and turning them into zombie-like creatures. Fighting back with the assistance of the inn’s disgraced former sushi chef Sawada (Shigeru Matsuzaki), Keiko turns her kung fu on the flying killers. But will it be enough to fend off the unremitting terror of the killer fish and rice?

Who said eating seafood was good for you?!
