Sushi Typhoon, the outrageous genre label launched last year
by Japan’s Nikkatsu Corporation, has splattered the festival scene with a
number of flicks, and now five of them are set to attack a wide U.S. audience.
Well Go USA has announced that it
has picked up disc, digital, video-on-demand and TV rights to five of Sushi
Typhoon’s titles, and will begin unleashing them via DVD, Blu-ray and VOD this
fall. The movies included under the deal are:
MUTANT GIRLS SQUAD (review)
HELLDRIVER (pictured above; feature)
YAKUZA WEAPON (review and feature)
The latter film screens later this month at Montreal’s
Fantasia festival, http://www.fantasiafestival.com with more fest play to come
for Sushi Typhoon’s productions later this summer and fall. “We are very
excited to have secured rights to these ‘neo action gore’ titles, a genre which
has seen tremendous growth here in the U.S. and has such passionate and
dedicated fans,” says Well Go president Doris Pfardrescher. “We continue to
look for interesting and compelling product from Asia to introduce to the North
American market.” Keep your eyes on this site for further info on individual
