Killer Sushi! Toilet Zombies! Karaoke Terror! Tasty Japanese Exploitation!

Cult movie fans, REMAIN UNAPOLOGETIC. EVEN IN THE FACE OF THIS:

Before you judge me, consider this: there is a place where, in a movie sense, ANYTHING GOES. There are no rules other than being wildly entertaining, like this:

Cue The Karaoke!

And of course, there will be some singing and dancing as well:

OK, I think that, if you are still here, you will stay for the rest of this wild, wild ride through the legendary film genre known as “J-sploitation”…I’ve written about it before, but I wanted to celebrate it one more time with three incredibly entertaining examples of the genre….and if you are hungry, we’ll begin with:

Behold the “Citizen Kane” of killer sushi movies!


“DEAD SUSHI!”

“Dead Sushi”is a “Japanese splatter action comedy” about “flying killer sushi monsters,” and it’s on blu-ray for you to enjoy!

Rina-Takeda-in-Dead-Sushi

“Dead Sushi” stars Japanese Actress Rina Takeda, who has a ball in this film, which is directed by Noboru Iguchi – who is quickly becoming the Lloyd Kaufman of Japan!

Director Noboru Iguchi Does It Again!

I have posted about Director Noboru Iguchi’s movies before, and have a recap and trailers of some of his previous work below. Now his new “J-sploitation” masterwork is here – this style of Japanese exploitation film is crazy, uninhibited, and campy beyond belief!


“Dead Sushi” Trailer!

Check out the trailer:

What can you say about THAT? As I have posted before, this new wave of Japanese horror film is called “J-spolitation”, and it involves young women who are abused or mistreated in some way, and they fight back in the most incredible manner possible, as you can see!

In this case, sushi has gone out of control – and with that as the simple setup, let the fun begin!

As always, there will be a lot of over-the-top bloodshed before the killer sushi is defeated…but that is how these movies play out…and you either accept them for what they are or not…but really, how can you take this TOO seriously?

And don’t think our Japanese friends have forgotten the zombie genre…in fact, they’ve taken it to a whole new level!


“Zombie Ass: Toilet Of The Dead!”

How can you argue with a film that has a plot that revolves around this image!

Prepare yourself for the majesty of “Zombie Ass!” Here is the trailer:

Zombie Ass Movie

“We are going to flush you! The most crap-tastic zombie movie ever to emerge from Japan’s cinema sewer is finally upon us, and it’s from the twisted mind of cinematic madman and legendary ass-fetishist Noboru Iguchi, creator of THE MACHINE GIRL, ROBO-GEISHA and KARATE-ROBO ZABORGAR!”

The terrific Japanese Director Iguchi has created a splatter comedy guaranteed to warm the bowels of those with the stomach for it… while more sensitive viewers may want to plug their noses and flee in disgust!

The plot is simple: pretty young karate student Megumi accompanies a group of older friends on a trip into the woods.

Things start to go badly when Maki finds a parasitical worm inside a fish they catch – and wolfs it down alive, in the hope that it’ll help keep her skinny! And then… zombies!

The group is attacked by a crowd of poop-covered undead who emerge from an outhouse toilet, and seek refuge at the home of strange Dr. Tanaka and his daughter Sachi – and it just gets even crazier from there!


The Liberating Power Of Farts!

This is what makes J-sploitation so unique – this plot asks the question: can Megumi’s karate alone help them escape, or will she have to rely on the liberating power of farts to save the day?

Zombie Ass Movie

That’s a question not asked nearly enough in film these days!

Finally, you need to remember that these films usually have a underlying message about society…and none more so than this classic:

Karaoke terror movie

Karaoke Terror!

This 2003 drama from Japan is a very interesting hybrid: it’s a serious dramatic look at the social upheaval in Japan – and it is an over-the-top gore fest, with one of the most unbelievable endings you will ever see! And of course, you will see things like THIS:

japanese blood and violence

The basic premise of the film deals with two very different groups; one are the Midoris, named so because all the middle-aged and divorced women share the name Midori, and a group of young college-aged men.

Both groups live separate lives until the day one of the boys murders a member of the Midoris, because she rejected a sexual advance.

So the concept is simple: two warring factions battle it out, with their love of karaoke the only bond between them. The movie showcases how middle-aged women in Japan are considered worthless, outcasts in their own country.

As they battle back and forth, the stakes escalate until you have the most amazing ending to a movie ever – and of course, lots of karaoke!

This is not a perfect movie to be sure, but what a great way to expand your movie-going horizons – let me know what you think about j-sploitation!
