DEADBALL is the latest outing from Sushi Typhoon, the film and dvd label that became notorious for bringing Japanese gore, cult, and horror films to the big screen. DEADBALL tells the tale of a baseball prodigy who accidentally kills his father and is later sent to prison after going on a rampage which ends in a killing spree. Directed by Yudai Yamaguchi (YAKUZA WEAPON), DEADBALL stars Tak Sakagushi (VERSUS), Mari Hoshino (INFECTION), and Miho Ninagawa (MAREBITO). The film is being billed as “a wild and crazy splatter baseball comedy” and judging by the trailer, the film will play out like a campy rollercoaster filled with gratuitous blood letting, murderous high school girls in itty bitty uniforms, and all the eye exploding gore expected in a Sushi Typhoon film.
DEADBALL will be throwing out the opening pitch in film festivals this summer! You can check out this film and others from The Sushi Typhoon at their official website and facebook page located here: http://www.facebook.com/SushiTyphoon
“When he was a child, baseball prodigy Jubei Yakyu (Tak Sakaguchi) accidentally caused the death of his father with a super-powered, deadly fireball pitch.

Sent to a reformatory for a killing spree, Jubei learns that his estranged brother had died there earlier from a mysterious illness. In order to fulfill his brother’s last wishes, Jubei reluctantly joins the prison baseball team when they take on the Black Dahlias, a sexy squad of killer high school girls who are determined to slaughter every last man on Jubei’s team! But the prison officials have plans of their own for Jubei, including an alliance with a squadron of uniformed Nazi officers! Suddenly, Jubei finds himself not only fighting to win the game, but also to save his own life!”
