Starfish Hotel (R2) in October

4Digital Asia have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of Starfish Hotel on 27th October 2008 priced at £14.99 RRP. The second Japanese language feature by St. Albans, Hertfordshire-born writer-director John Williams (Firefly Dreams; Midnight Spin), Starfish Hotel is a neo-noir, erotic mystery thriller inspired by ‘Alice In Wonderland' and the novels of Haruki Murakami (After Dark; The Wind Up Bird Chronicle; Norwegian Wood).

Starring Koichi Sato (Ring 2; Battle Without Honour; When The Last Sword Is Drawn), Tae Kimura (The Sinking Of Japan; Train Man) and former model turned actress Kiki (Vital), the film spins an illusory story of one man for whom the lines between dreams, past memories and modern-day reality become progressively blurred by his immersion in the latest mystery novel of his favourite author.

Extras include: ‘Making of' featurette; interview with writer-director John Williams.
