About Dead Ball DVD

As a young lad, baseball prodigy Jûbei tragically realises the destructive force of his powerful pitching arm when he accidentally cracks open his father’s head with the ball during practice. Years later, Jûbei (Tak Sakaguchi), now a crime-fighting vigilante, is placed in a correctional institution for violent juveniles run by a Nazi headmistress, who convinces the young man to join the prison baseball team, while conveniently neglecting to mention that the next game will be played to the death against the evil St. Black Dahlias (a baseball team consisting solely of unfeasibly sexy but extremely brutal young Japanese high-school girls in almost non-existent outfits). A fanstically demented film whose ‘anything goes’ approach attains new levels of insanity, Deadball is a bizarre comedy/horror crammed full of deranged splat-schtick, mind-boggling strangeness and Loony Tunes-style cartoon violence.

“A no-holds-barred splatter comedy with no sense of good taste or decorum… DEADBALL fully embraces its own insanity”
