Director Noboru Iguchi should make 20 movies a year. I’d lovingly buy and obsessively watch each and every one of them. Because I’m a dork. The guy is a cinematic lunatic, and I never tire of what he has to offer. Even when they’re cheap, stupid, and completely sophomoric, I’m there with an ugly grin on my misshapen mouth. It’s quite a sight to see.
Iguchi’s next deranged effort “Dead Sushi” will debut on DVD later this month. Unfortunately for those of us who have made the jump to high definition, the Blu-ray isn’t slated for arrival until March 26. Do I take the plunge now or hold off? Damn these infernal decisions!
Hey! Here’s this synopsis:
Keiko, the daughter of a legendary sushi chef, runs away from home when his Karate-style regimen becomes too severe. Finding work at a rural hot springs inn, she is ridiculed by the eccentric staff and guests, including the employees of a pharmaceutical firm there on a work retreat. But little do they know that a disgruntled former researcher has also come to the inn with a plan for revenge, using a serum he developed that can awaken the murderous instincts of ordinary sushi, turning it into bloodthirsty monsters! Keiko must use both her sushi training and her martial arts skills to save the others and defeat the flying killers.
“Dead Sushi” in all its bizarro glory will hit DVD on January 22. Although I’m tempted to splurge, I may have to wait until March for the Blu-ray. I’m a snob. Sue me. Look at the trailer while you’re cursing my name and making fun of my life.
UPDATE: I was recently informed by the official “Dead Sushi” Twitter account that the Blu-ray will be available as a Best Buy exclusive on January 22. Everywhere else is getting the disc in March. In other words, I’ll be transporting my degenerate behind to the nearest Best Buy location in just a few days. All is right with the world once again.
