Critic Reviews for Dead Sushi
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
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.
The title says it all.
Dead Sushi contains everything that is vintage Noboru Iguchi, except the sushi isn't dead. It's alive.
Yes, there is a story and it is as ridiculous as its title, but it does tie all the nonsense together. The 90 minutes do actually flow from beginning to end; it's just laced with everything a family film needs, which is extreme violence, gore, nudity, and grotesque situations.
The CG is of low budget and the violence is incredibly over the top, but that is what makes Dead Sushi as amusing and humorous as it is.
Rina Takeda is a joy. Her personality on screen, blended with her martial arts background, make her a solid lead for this picture. Not to take anything away from Asami, because she ends up with memorable scene after memorable scene. The Robot sums them up quite nicely.
Dead Sushi definitely isn't for everyone, but for it's target audience it is an entertaining sit through.
