Dead Sushi A.K.A. Deddo Sushi (2012)

A Japanese horror comedy written and directed by Noboru Iguchi, starring Asami Sugiura with special effects by Yoshihiro Nishimura.
A young woman whose father has trained her as a sushi chef and kung fu fighter runs away from home and finds a job at a hotel. Businessmen from a pharmaceutical company visit and anger a local vagrant who used to work for them. Before vagrancy, the man was working on chemicals to bring dead things back to life and he releases the chemicals, turning sushi into monsters that infect people and other sushi with the same.
This was better than Machinegirl, but not as good as RoboGeisha. The characters were decent, with the best being a cute little singing egg sushi that befriends the female lead. The animation and voice-acting of the sushi reminded me of the Evil Dead films. In fact, I could point out several similarities in camera-work and plot presentation as well. This film was very similar to RoboGeisha, but the premise was somewhat lacking. Undead monster sushi would be a cool idea for a short, but it doesn't stand up well as a feature length film. That's really the only difference. I rate this good because I was definitely entertained, but it fell short of being epic and legendary.
