NEW YORK, July 3 – The Japan Society hosted a special international premiere of Mutant Girls Squad in conjunction with the New York Asian Film Festival (NYAFF) and the Sushi Typhoon label. It’s one of the first films produced under the new movie label.
Directed by three insanely talented Japanese filmmakers, the movie is an extremely violent picture with gallons of fake bloody. Essentially parodying American superhero comic book movies, a team of teenage mutant gravure idols takes over a local street mall. They proceed to kill everything that moves. I mean everything. It’s mostly a non-stop action gore fest with several outrageously funny moments.
After the screening, the NYAFF held a special Sushi Typhoon party with Noboru Iguchi (井口昇), Yoshihiro Nishimura (西村喜廣), Asami (杉浦 亜紗美), and Cay Izumi (泉カイ). They carried out an entertaining spectacle involving mawashi (sumo loincloths) and darts. It’s too bizarre for words.
