If you just can’t wait any longer to watch Sion Sono’s Cold Fish (now in limited theaters, opening in Austin tonight!) then we have some great news to kick off your weekend.
The film is available NOW, exclusively via iTunes, for the low sum of $6.99 for the standard iTunes rental period.
Just a heads up, the flick is 2.5 hrs long and subtitled, so get comfortable before diving in. For those who would rather wait (or don’t have the bandwidth), it arrives on more VOD locations and on DVD August 23.
“In the film, mild-mannered Shamoto’s teenage daughter gets caught shoplifting. A generous fellow fish-store owner and his wife appear to help resolve the situation by having her work at their fish store. Too good to be true? You bet! Shamoto soon discovers the horrific truth about this seemingly perfect couple…who inextricably weave him into their grisly rituals. Inspired by true events, COLD FISH is a twisted, brutal, blood-soaked drama that reveals the underlying insanity of an ordinary man pushed well beyond the brink.”
