UK VOD Release: Stay Pretty, No Pity

Tokyo Bay Films is excited to present Stay Pretty, No Pity, which is available to watch on YouTube

If a ghost shows herself to you in the mirror and asks: “Do you want to stay pretty?” What would your answer be? 

Stay Pretty, No Pity is a short film that tells the story of Lucy (Maria Ozawa) who fled an abusive relationship and took refuge with her new roommate. Things take a turn for the worst when a ghost appears and shows her seemingly random images. Lucy has three days to decipher the clues of these visions and discover the ghost’s intentions. 

Stay Pretty, No Pity is a spooky extension of the ancient Japanese folklore tale of Oiwa Yotsuya (Yotsuya Kaidan). The original tale followed a samurai who after murdering his wife after she became deformed was haunted by her spirit until he became insane and killed himself. 

Now hundreds of years later, Yotsuya is back! She is punishing ugly characters by recruiting the pretty, starting with Lucy.  

Stay Pretty, No Pity is available to watch on YouTube now here:

UK VOD Release: Tokyo Dragon Chef

Terracotta Distribution are delighted to announce the release of their insane Japanese action comedy, Tokyo Dragon Chef. Behind the camera is renowned director, Yoshihiro Nishimura, responsible for cult hits such as ‘Tokyo Gore Police’ and ‘Meatball Machine: Kodoku’ and the special FX director of Shin Godzilla.

Retired Yakuzas open a ramen restaurant and become an overnight sensation, thanks to their recipe developed in prison. But a mysterious upstart gang is taking down every Yakuza family one by one, drawing the chefs back into the gangland underworld once more!

Terracotta Distribution owner Joey Leung was thrilled that the film will be reaching UK audiences.

Everyone needs their spirits lifted at the moment and this blend of Yakuza rivalry, culinary success story and colourful musical are the much needed ingredients for a crazy, uplifting recipe that only the Japanese directors like Yoshihiro Nishimura can serve up. This is great find from us, it’s the film equivalent of crate digging for records and finding that gem you know people will just love, with a mix of older famous actors, young youtubers and pop idols.

Tokyo Dragon Chef is a hilarious and bonkers infusion of Blues Brothers and Tampopo – martial arts, music and of course, ramen!

Tokyo Dragon Chef will be on DVD & Digital Download from 25th January
