A page for K˘ji Kawano's Cruel Restaurant (Zankoku hanten) has been added to the J-sploitation subsite of GOMORRAHY.com, and on that page is a trailer for the movie.

The screenplay for Cruel Restaurant was written by Kawano and Satoshi ďwada. The movie stars (listed order corresponds to order on DVD cover) Mihiro, Sakae Yamazaki, Katsuya Naruse, Yűsuke Iwata, Miho Funatsu, Toshiyuki Teranaka, Chihiro Koganezaki, and Kŕsuke.

Here's a synopsis for Cruel Restaurant from the production: "Only men are amazed with the pot stickers of the Togen Restaurant. There is an eerie rumor that those who try to find the secret recipe of its pot stickers disappear near the restaurant. Police investigate, but there's no smoking gun with its owner, Lin (Mihiro). Various people come out of curiosity and get involved in horrendous murders. Finally, the truth about the Togen's pot stickers, called 'the extreme taste', is revealed."

Kawano's previous directing credits include The Girls Rebel Force of Competitive Swimmers (Joshiky˘ei hanrangun) - the second movie in the Nihombie (Nihonbi) series - Love My Life, Chaku-ero no onna: Karina (starring Mihiro), Satsujin netto, Mŕru: In the Site, Za chikan netto: Access 7 (starring Ran Monbu), Inrenbo (starring Lucia Sant˘ (Sant˘ Rushia)), Ky˘shűjo no oneesan: Hitomi (starring Miyuki H˘rai), and N˘-pan onna ky˘shi (starring Ai Kurosawa).

A.D. Vision Inc. is scheduled to release Cruel Restaurant on DVD in the U.S. on December 2nd; the DVD is available for pre-order from Dread Central affiliate Amazon.com.

Here's a description of Cruel Restaurant from A.D. Vision: "Or is it chicken? No one is really sure exactly WHAT makes it so yummy, but everyone agrees that the super-secret filling recipe at the new dumpling house is the best ever! Some people like it so much, in fact, that they're literally willing to kill to get it! But when some of those same connoisseurs start turning up missing, and when the police start getting reports of body parts washing up on the beach, it looks like the shop's owner, sweet and luscious little Lin, MAY have a little explaining to do! What's really going on in that kitchen may shock you into going vegetarian! It's the happening bistro where the who's who may become the what's what on the daily special - the Cruel Restaurant!"

A.D. Vision is also scheduled to release Kawano's Attack Girls Swim Team vs the Unliving Dead (Joshiky˘ei hanrangun) - a.k.a. "The Girls Rebel Force of Competitive Swimmers", "Undead Pool", and "Nihombie 2" - on DVD in the U.S. on December 9th; that DVD is also available for pre-order from Dread Central affiliate Amazon.com.
