Cold Fish

Cold Fish

Directed by Sion Sono

In Sion Sono’s gruesome black comedy, a coward’s life is turned upside down when he’s befriended by a serial killer. Fish shop owner Syamoto’s daughter hates him for remarrying after her mother’s death. But when she’s caught stealing, in walks Murata, who quickly seduces Syamoto’s wife and offers to house his daughter. But that’s just for starters. Soon Murata and his wife are involving Syamoto in their sickening murders, pushing him towards a breaking point. Asuka Kurosawa’s brilliant portrayal of the bloodthirsty Mrs. Murata deserves a spot in the horror hall of fam Contains sexual scenes, violence and gore.

A coward’s life is turned upside down when he’s befriended by a serial killer.

Cast: Mtsuru Fukikoshi, Megumi Kagurazaka, Asuka Kurosawa, Denden

I feel like “5 skulls” are handed out too generously here. I happened across this through Shudder TV and I thought it was well done, but nothing particularly notable or memorable. All in all a worthwhile watch.
