Torture porn with a culinary motif. Story takes place largely in an abandoned Japanese restaurant in LA, where the surviving crooks of a diamond heist gone wrong sit down to a sushi dinner artfully served on the naked body of the enigmatic title female. They’re there to quiz (brutalize) their just-paroled getaway driver (named “Fish”) who they think stashed the ice. Loved the poster art and the tag line: “Revenge is a dish best served raw.” But everything else about this gory Reservoir Dogs ripoff left a bad aftertaste as each gangster takes his sadistic turn trying to get the poor guy to talk. Ugly.
