Coming Soon - Cold Fish


Sion Sono's Cold Fish is set for a limited theatrical release starting August 5th as part of The Collective and Bloody Disgusting's Night Terrors series of releases. It then hit DVD and iTunes on August 23rd, with a VOD release from September 23rd. I actually have the 2 Disc R2 release of this, but have still yet to sit down and watch it. As soon as I do rest assured I will post up a review here as I really think Sono is one of the most exciting directors out there.

Synopsis:     
COLD FISH-from Sion Sono, the director of LOVE EXPOSURE and SUICIDE CLUB.  COLD FISH has won acclaim at both the Venice and Toronto Film Festivals. In the film, mild-mannered Shamoto’s teenage daughter gets caught shoplifting. A generous fellow fish-store owner and his wife appear to help resolve the situation by having her work at their fish store. Too good to be true?  You bet! Shamoto soon discovers the horrific truth about this seemingly perfect couple…who inextricably weave him into their grisly rituals. Inspired by true events, COLD FISH is a twisted, brutal, blood-soaked drama that reveals the underlying insanity of an ordinary man pushed well beyond the brink.

Wow! This movie looks really good, I shall keep an eye out for it! The performances look very lively too. The poster reminds me of "Straw Dogs" quite a bit. Keep up the good work!
