This Japanese film, directed by Noboru Iguchi (Tokyo Gore Police, Robo-Geisha), is one of those films that is unique to its region. It blends action, comedy and horror with splatter gore and over-the-top sequences to creature a truly distinctive concept.
It’s a love or hate thing, some might say. The whole way in which films like Dead Sushi, and others like it, are done will certainly bring conversation to the table. The performances often border on ridiculous but have a particular and peculiar charm to them that will divide opinions depending on whether or not this type of movie is “for you”.

Some may say never judge a film by its title, but when looking at the films of cult director Noboru Iguchi, they really do offer a clue as to the tone and content of his films. Zombie Ass: Toilet Of The Dead, The Machine Girl, and Robogeisha are just some of his B-movie classics he has unleashed on the world. Couple this with his addition to The Abcs Of Death, that being F is For Fart, and you can tell if Dead Sushi is going to appeal to you. It’s lowbrow, it’s crass, it’s sick and funny, and it doesn’t try and hide its modest budget.
