New Batch of Wacky Images from Director Noboru Iguchi’s Dead Sushi

1 Comment

It really doesn’t matter where “RoboGeisha” director Noboru Igushi goes, I’m going to follow. I was thoroughly amused with his recent effort, the 2011 reboot “Tomie: Unlimited”, a film that’s as sadistically wacky as it is downright creepy. I’m unhealthily infatuated with the over-the-top, carnivalesque nature of his endeavors, and his latest flick “Dead Sushi” looks to be just as goofy as the rest of them. What cooler about this particular production is the participation of “High Kick Girl” herself, Rina Takeda. And that, my friends, is pretty kick-ass.

As for the story, here’s what you get: In an attempt to escape the clutches of her unfriendly father, a young girl takes a job at a run-down resort. What she doesn’t know, of course, is that a legion of undead sushi is about to unleash a reign of terror on inn’s clientele.

“Dead Sushi” will begin its festival run very soon. In the meantime, have a look at the latest batch of images below. And if you missed the trailer, that has been included, as well.

When he isn’t providing news and reviews for Beyond Hollywood, he can be found lounging lazily on his couch, perched in front of his television, or dwelling in places where direct sunlight can be easily avoided. He's happily married, in his 30's, and totally badass. If you'd like to reach Todd, you can follow him on Twitter or send him email/scoops to todd (at)

    I think director Noboru Igushi is a unique director and entertains audiences with his quirky, silly, sometimes raunchy sense of humor and yet beautifully directed comedy genre films. When I want to see something new and exciting, yet not needing to put my brain to work, Noboru’s films are it, next to Takashi Miike.

    HOWEVER, as much as I absolutely positively adore Rina Takeda, I think for purposes of her career she should stay far away from being in films like these.
    She is true, legitimate, authentic martial artist. It seems that she wants to enhance her film career in the similar fashion that Jeeja Yanin and Michelle Yeoh have. Thus, miss Takeda probably shouldn’t make any more films like this. Just my two cents
