Another outrageous Japanese splatter film is gunning for Blu-ray in September.
In an early announcement to retailers, Well Go USA will be releasing 'Mutant Girls Squad' for a high-definition release on May 22.
Three leaders in the Japanese splatter movement -- Noboru Iguchi ('The Machine Girl'), Yoshihiro Nishimura ('Tokyo Gore Police') and Tak Sakaguchi ('Yoroi: Samurai Zombie') -- join forces to bring three times the heart-pounding action, three times the jaw-dropping comedy and three times the head-exploding splatter of your average action/horror/comedy with 'Mutant Girls Squad.'
A soon-to-be cult film from the prolific Japanese cult film label Sushi Typhoon, 'Mutant Girls Squad' is touted as a warped version of X-MEN, adapted into the violent, body-horror-filled universe of the three directors. 'Mutant Girls Squad' focuses on Rin, a beautiful 16-year-old who experiences one hell of a coming-of-age when her birthday present from nature comes in the form of a shocking revelation. The film stars Yumi Sugimoto, Yuko Takayama, Suzuka Morita and Naoto Takenaka.
Specs have yet to be revealed, but the Blu-ray/DVD combo pack will include Opening Day, The Making of Mutant Girls Squad, Interviews with filmmakers, and a short film: "Yoshi Zero".
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.98.
