Who would have thought the apocalypse would come in the form of bio-mechanical fart-propelled mutant zombie fish? That would be horror manga artist Junji Ito, the psycho genius behind Tomie and Uzumaki. Based on Ito's Gyo--The Death Stench Creeps and directed by Takayuki Hirao (Futakoi Alternative), with Takuro Takahashi (Garden of Sinners) in charge of character design, Gyo focuses on Kaori, who is attacked by rotting sea creatures while on holiday with her girlfriends in Okinawa. They somehow survive by the skin of their teeth but after Kaori loses cell phone contact with her boyfriend in Tokyo, she rushes back to the city fearing that this is not just poor network coverage... Don't eat before watching this.
