Noboru Iguchi's Dead Sushi to premiere at Fantasia 2012! Check out the poster and insane trailer

If you're a fan of bizarre and ultra gory Japanese flicks like THE MACHINE GIRL or ROBO-GEISHA, chances are you're familiar with director Noboru Iguchi. You should also be glad to hear that his latest movie, DEAD SUSHI, will have its world premiere at the Fantasia International Film Festival on July 22nd. It might very well be his most insane feature yet. Don't believe me? Check out the trailer below.

Keiko, daughter of a famous sushi chef, leaves home to escape his overbearing training in both sushi-making and martial arts. Finding work at a rural inn, she is bullied by the staff and ridiculed by the guests, including the president of Komatsu Pharmaceuticals, who has come to the inn for a vacation with his associates. Little do they know, however, that disgruntled Komatsu researcher Yamada has followed them there with designs on revenge, using a serum he developed that can awaken the murderous instincts of fish on rice, creating…killer sushi! Bloodthirsty tuna and squid soon descend upon the humans, killing many and turning the remainder into zombie-like creatures. Keiko, joined by the inn’s former sushi chef Sawada, uses her fighting skills against the creatures in an attempt to escape with a handful of uninfected survivors. But Yamada has another deadly surprise for them…can Keiko and Sawada defeat both him and his flying killers?

DEAD SUSHI stars 21-year-old martial arts prodigy Rina Takeda, Shigeru Matsuzaki, Kentaro Shimazu, Takashi Nishina, Asami and Kanji Tsuda.

Extra Tidbit: Other movies by Noboru Iguchi include Karate-Robo Zaborgar and Zombie Ass: Toilet of the Dead. Gotta love that last title.
