Movie Info

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 fu-like 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! (c) Office Walker

If splattery Japanese weirdness is what you're into, there's no denying that this flick delivers the goods, and then some.

For those in the mood for a midnight movie extravaganza that shows attention to the particulars of the palate and reverence for creature attack cinema, Dead Sushi is just cracked enough to work.

In the world of Japanese extremism cinema, Noboru Iguchi is an Iron Chef - and his lastest delectable treat pleases just like the rest.

For all its absurdity Dead Sushi is truly a film made by a bunch of like-minded Japanese Lost Boys who are all just trying to have fun and make each other laugh, and it shows!

anyone with an adventurous palate, & tolerance for highly artificial colours & flavours, might fancy a sample from this wilfully tasteless menu. It melts on the mouth, without leaving anything to chew on - but overall, it's a bit of a damp squid.

Audience Reviews for Dead Sushi

The Japenese version of Attack of the Killer Tomatoes. I think thats all that is really needed to be said. If you like those kind of movies that are so bad that are still bad, then this is the one for you. I wont lie though, I laughed quite a few times.

Ridiculously campy fun. Deliciously terrifying? Somehow, Iguchi was able to tie everything together in this mess. The acting was actually quite nice, so does the whole premise. It's fun to watch and shows off Japanese culture.
