Films that don’t need more blood … but want it anyway

Mutant Girls Squad “Mutant Girls Squad”
Deformed girls and lots and lots and lots of blood. Enjoy.

Alien vs Ninja “Alien vs Ninja”
What do you think this is about? An alien fights ninjas. Nuff said.

Cold Fish “Cold Fish”
Sort of like “Dexter” but set in Japan and about tropical fish store owners.

Karate Robo Zaborgar “Karate Robo Zaborgar”
Who doesn’t want a motorcycle that transforms into a robot?

These are just some of the films coming out of the newly formed conglomeration called Sushi Typhoon. For fans of Asian cinema, know that this venture is basically an offshoot of Nikkatsu and spearheaded by a bevy of well known names in the field, including Yoshinori Chiba, Takashi Miike, Noboru Iguchi and Yoshihiro Nishimura, Sion Sono, Tak Sakaguchi and Yudai Yamaguchi.

The first wave of films will hit festivals this fall and DVD/BluRay shelves in the first quarter of 2011, aided by a partnership with FUNimation Entertainment. More information can be found at

Sushi Typhoon

In regards to their recently held panel at Comic-Con, Director Yoshihiro Nishimura and producer Yoshinori Chiba were there to discuss their new collaboration, along with actors from “Alien vs Ninja”. They showed trailers for a few of the films and emphasized that they hope that Sushi Typhoon will allow for a greater number of films to be seen by wider audiences outside of Japan.

Most importantly, two of the films will be screened Friday night in Room 4; “Alien vs Ninja” at 8:30pm and “Mutant Girls Squad” at 10:15 pm. Don’t miss a great chance to catch some good splattercomedy from the land of the rising sun.
