The Calamari Wrestler

Prepare yourself. This lunatic slice of cinema could only have come from the Land of the Rising Sun. The story concerns a dedicated professional wrestler who is determined to reach the top of the Japanese grappling world. And he just happens to be a giant squid. Along the rocky road to victory, our squishy hero must contend with a corrupt manager, a beautiful girlfriend and a rising tide of seafood-based competition, including a giant octopus and a giant shrimp. This preposterous but straight-faced combination of Godzilla and WWE is just the thing for man-in-a-rubber-suit monster aficionados and Kaiju Big Battle fanatics. In Japanese with English subtitles. 95 minutes
