The official website for Noboru Iguchi's Tomie: Unlimited (Tomie: anrimiteddo) is now online, although at present it's just a home page.

The screenplay for Tomie: Unlimited was written by Jun Tsugita and Iguchi, based on the Tomie manga series by Junji It˘. The movie stars (listed order corresponds to order on official website) Moe Arai, Miu Nakamura (middle of top row), Aika ďta, Kensuke ďwada, K˘ichi ďhori, and Maiko Kawakami. Yoshihiro Nishimura and his Nishimura Eizo Co. Ltd. (Y.K. Nishimura Eiz˘) were responsible for its special make-up effects. Tsuyoshi Kazuno and his Studio Buckhorn Y.K. (Y.K. Sutajio Bakkuh˘n) were responsible for its visual effects.

Here's a synopsis for Tomie: Unlimited from the production: "Tsukiko, who belongs to a photography club at high school, always feel inferior to her elder sister, Tomie. Tomie is breathtakingly beautiful and popular among the male students including Toshio, who Tsukiko is secretly in love with. However one day, an awful accident kills Tomie right in front of Tsukiko. Since then, Tsukiko suffers from a nightmare night after night. A year later, Tsukiko and her parents are silently surrounding a birthday cake to celebrate dead Tomie's 18th birthday. Suddenly, they hear the eerie knocks on their door. Unbelievably, it is Tomie. She's back. The father and the mother blindly welcome Tomie in tears, but Tsukiko feels instinct fear. Tomie gradually reveals her true face only when she is with Tsukiko. Now Tsukiko's nightmare becomes reality, and the terrifying days begin..."

T-Joy Co. Ltd. (K.K. Ti Joi) and CJ Entertainment Japan Inc. (CJ Entertainment Japan K.K.) are scheduled to release Tomie: Unlimited theatrically in Japan on May 14th.

I'm disappointed that Iguchi seems to be playing this one straight. Considering his track record, I had my hopes up for him turning in a fun and batshit insane installment in this endless series. At this point in the franchise I'm really no longer interested in another retread of the same old story. The only TOMIE film I'd be interested in would be one written by Shintaro Kago and directed by Naoyuki Tomomatsu, with total creative and moral freedom granted to both.

Samurai Angel Wars

Distribution rights for Tomie: Unlimited are to be offered for sale by Nikkatsu Corporation (Nikkatsu K.K.) at this year's American Film Market (AFM) in Santa Monica, California.

Arai co-stars with Kasumi Arimura and Seika Taketomi in Futoshi Sat˘'s Samurai Angel Wars (Gyaru basara: Sengoku-jidai wa kengai desu), which Kadokawa Pictures (Kadokawa Shoten Co. Ltd. / K.K. Kadokawa Shoten) is scheduled to release theatrically in Japan on November 26th. Distribution rights for it are to be offered for sale by Kadokawa Pictures at this year's AFM.

Here's a description of Samurai Angel Wars from Kadokawa Pictures: "Somehow, female high-school students from our modern era time-travel into the middle of the 16th century Warring States period. They are suddenly thrown into the midst of that bloodthirsty war, a situation where spontaneous killing becomes a fact of life. Through their characteristic vitality and matter-of-fact courage, they luckily repaint the picture of the Warring States period. These girls have a strength that knows no fear. In the end, what will happen with the history of Japan?! Â With a touch of comedy, we see the growth and friendship of these high school girls who have been thrown into an unbelievable world, and in the end we'll be moved to tears by the unfolding drama of these young people."

Here's a synopsis for Dead Sushi via Gaijinsploitation.com: "Keiko is the daughter of a legendary sushi chef. Hoping to follow in his footsteps, she enters into training under her father's guidance. The kung fu-like regime is rigid, pushing her to her mental and physical limits. Unable to take it, she runs away. Â Finding work at a rural hot spring inn, Keiko is dismayed to find that her co-workers are an eccentric lot who have it in for the new girl. Complicating matters is the arrival of a group of employees from Komatsu Pharmaceutical there to sample the inn's famous specialty sushi. Following them in pursuit of revenge is a medical researcher betrayed by the Komatsu president. The disgruntled man injects the hotel sushi with a drug that not only brings the sushi pieces to life but also turns them into ferocious bloodthirsty killers. Â Right away the reanimated sushi begins to kill off the hotel guests. Fatty tuna chews into human tongues; flesh hungry salmon roe leaps about with gnashing fangs; and the sashimi pieces laid across the bodies of beautiful women devour them before the eyes of the stunned guests. Â Panic ensues as the sushi multiplies, infecting humans and turning them into zombie-like creatures. Fighting back, Keiko turns her kung fu on the sushi. But will it be enough to fend off the unremitting terror of the killer sushi?"

The title of Tsuta's upcoming movie has been changed from simply "Iya monogatari" to "Iya monogatari: oku no hito".

Tsuta previously directed Island of Dreams (Yume no Shima), which (as I posted about back in September of 2009) had its international premiŔre at the Vancouver International Film Festival on October 4, 2009.

I watched Iguchi's TOMIE: UNLIMITED the other day. He does play things pretty straight with this film (no wacky humor or things coming out of girls' butts) but he adds a whole bunch of gore and crazy effects that helped make this my second favorite TOMIE film after Takashi Shimizu's TOMIE: REPLAY. Neither of them are masterpieces of genre cinema but I found them entertaining enough, which is more than I can say about some other entries in this surprisingly long-lived franchise.
