SynopsisUNRATED July release: Strange Circus, Love Exposure and Suicide Club director Sion Sono is heading back to the gore with a new thriller entitled Cold Fish, which was being teased at this past year's EFM in Berlin. Revealed to be "a true-life serial killer story", the massive synopsis can be found here.
When Shamoto’s teenage daughter was caught stealing, a generous middle-aged man helps to resolve the situation. Coincidentally, both Shamoto and the man owned a tropical fish store. The man offers Shamoto to have his troublesome daughter to work at the man’s store. Shamoto and his wife accept all the kind offers that the man and his wife make, however, Shamoto soon discovers the horrific truth of the seemingly perfect couple… Exploiting Shamoto’s weakness, the couple forces him to get his hands dirty in their brutal business. Inspired by a true event, COLD FISH is a bloodcurdling suspense drama that unveils the underlying insanity of an ordinary man.
