Morbid manga master Junji Ito’s putrid and surreal story of mutant zombie fish that sprout legs and attack Japan is the most insane anime to come out of Japan since Urotsukidōji: Legend of the Overfiend; Directed by Takayuki Hirao and released on DVD following its success at the Terror Cotta Horror movie marathon part of Terracotta Festival in association with Film Four Frightfest.
An adaptation of the popular manga by Junji Ito, Gyo centers around the “death stench”, a revolting smell first encountered in connection with creatures appearing to be bizarre and aggressive mutant fish with scuttling, sharp metal legs.
When Okinawa is taken over by these dangerous, disgusting and disturbing walking fish that are leaving the ocean heading to the cities, Kaori loses contact with her boyfriend and heads to Tokyo to locate him, only to find that the metropolis has been taken over by bigger and bigger killer fish. As she battles her way through the ruined city things get weirder and more dangerous, leading to a finale that must be seen to be believed!
