"In Fear" Sundance Poster unveiled + "Dead Sushi" gets LA theatrical release tomorrow!

I just received an e-mail that showcased the cool-looking poster art for IN FEAR which premieres at the Sundance Film Festival on Sunday, January 20th. The film stars Iain De Caestecker (U.K. TV show The Fades), Alice Englert (the forthcoming Beautiful Creatures), and Allen Leech (Downton Abbey), and tells the story of a young couple who gets lost in a maze of country roads and attempts to survive a night-turned-nightmare.

If you're attending the festival, or just curious about this particular movie and want to pop in to give it a look, here is the screening schedule for IN FEAR:
  • Sunday, January 20, Midnight, Egyptian Theatre, Park City
  • Sunday, January 22, 9:30pm, Broadway Centre Cinema 6, Salt Lake City
  • Monday, January 23, 11:30pm, Prospector Square Theatre, Park City 
  • Tuesday, January 25, 11:30am, Redstone Cinema 2, Park City

Not gonna be making it to Sundance at all next week? Do you live in or around Los Angeles? If you answered yes to both then you can get a look at a new film from the insane mind of Director Noboru Iguchi called DEAD SUSHI! The film is playing at the The Downtown Independent from Friday, January 18th up until Thursday, January 24th. For the full listing of screenings CLICK HERE. View the batshit insane trailer HERE.

Synopsis: "Keiko, the daughter of a legendary sushi chef, runs away from home when his Karate-style regimen becomes too severe. Finding work at a rural hot springs inn, she is ridiculed by the eccentric staff and guests, including the employees of a pharmaceutical firm there on a work retreat. But little do they know that a disgruntled former researcher has also come to the inn with a plan for revenge, using a serum he developed that can awaken the murderous instincts of ordinary sushi, turning it into bloodthirsty monsters! Keiko must use both her sushi training and her martial arts skills to save the others and defeat the flying killers.

From the director of “Machine Girl”, “Robogeisha” and “The ABCs of Death,”Noboru Iguchi brings us his latest horror film, DEAD SUSHI, an official selection of Fantastic Fest 2012, Fantasia Film Festival 2012, Puchon International Fantastic Film Festival 2012 and Toronto After Dark Film Festival 2012."

For everyone else, the only way you will see this flick next week is if you buy the DVD (pre-order it now at AMAZON.COM). The DEAD SUSHI Blu-ray will not be out until March 26th (pre-order it at AMAZON.COM for $13.49), unless you come across it at Best Buy, as it will be a "Best Buy Exclusive." The disc is unrated and offers up Behind the Scenes footage as an extra feature, plus two audio tracks and English subtitles. It's cost should be around $14.99.

It sounds like a fun and crazy movie, but pales in comparison to MONSTER ROLL, a short film/trailer about giant sea monsters battling kung-fu sushi chefs for the fate of Japan! The idea is hilariously awesome and the CGI work is fairly well done. Check it out for yourself below:
