Dallas Festival to Premiere new film Gun Woman with director Kurando Mitsutake in attendance
Dallas, Texas - Texas Frightmare Weekend is proud to announce a pair of exciting guests from the world of Japanese genre film, along with the premiere of their violent, sexy new action film, GUN WOMAN.
Japanese actress Asami needs no introduction to anyone familiar with her work in the field of independent action, horror and splatter movies in Japan, having appeared in such modern genre classics as THE MACHINE GIRL, ROBO-GEISHA, KARATE-ROBO ZABORGAR, the YAKUZA-BUSTING GIRLS films, ZOMBIE ASS, DEAD SUSHI and many more. Her filmography also extends to dozens of entries in the erotic "pink cinema" field, such as EROTIBOT, LUST OF THE DEAD, THREE SLAVE WOMEN, FEMALE PRISONER AYAKA and the pink horror film HORNY HOUSE OF HORROR. Her powerful onscreen presence, deft comedy skills, lovely face and body, and bright and cheerful attitude always shine through, no matter what role she takes, and her performance in Kurando Mitsutake's newest film GUN WOMAN brings her to a new level of action film achievement. Starring as a mute girl who is transformed from a sex worker into a hard-as-steel assassin, Asami spends much of the film nude and covered in blood in her quest for revenge on behalf of her master, a psychopathic doctor whose family has been slaughtered.
Asami makes her first North American convention appearance at Texas Frightmare Weekend 2014, and her wide body of work as well as her fantastic presence in person are sure to make the event unforgettable for fans of Japanese fantastic and genre cinema.
Los Angeles-based actor / director Kurando Mitsutake specializes in mixing American and Japanese genre film elements to create unique mixtures of Eastern and Western flavor that appeal to fans on both sides of the Pacific. He's appeared on TV shows such as "Ugly Betty" and "Heroes" (where he played recurring villain White Beard during season two), and headlined his own film SAMURAI AVENGER: THE BLIND WOLF, as a sightless wanderer seeking revenge against the villain who blinded him and slaughtered his wife and daughter. His latest film, GUN WOMAN, features legendary pink and action / horror film actress Asami in her first international production, as the deadly instrument of a psychopathic doctor's bizarre revenge scheme.
TFW is arguably America's largest gatherings of horror celebrities, professionals, and fans - now celebrating its ninth amazing year. The event boasts over 10,000 attendees annually and has previously hosted genre legends such as George A. Romero, Clive Barker, Malcolm McDowell, Robert Englund, John Carpenter, Tobe Hooper, Cary Elwes, and hundreds more.
