Sushi Typhoon has announced that, fresh off of its screening at the Fantasia Film Festival in Montreal, Sion Sono’s critically-acclaimed, Japanese box office smash finally comes to US theatres (courtesy of The Collective / Salient Media) starting this Friday, August 5th.
After the theatrical run, COLD FISH will come to DVD and iTunes starting 8/23, and to video-on-demand beginning 9/23.
"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."
