Chum the Waters of Your DVD Collection with "Cold Fish"


"Make new friends but keep the old, one is silver and the other a mass murdering psychopath intent on drawing you into his web of brutal murders and investment fraud", or so the old song goes, at least in Japan. This summer, Cold Fish debuted as part of the Bloody Disgusting and Collective horror film series that played at select AMC theaters. If you were lucky enough to catch Cold Fish during its limited run...err...swim, then you had the pleasure of enjoying a tale about two exotic fish salesmen wading into a bloodbath. That may seem disturbing, but we assure you it's rather enjoyable to watch, as sick as that sounds. Cold Fish flopped on to DVD on August 23rd, and to continue our support of the Bloody Disgusting series we're giving away a copy to one lucky reader. To find out how you can win, just keep reading.

When 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.
