It comes with very sad news that I report that legendary Japanese director Toshiharu Ikeda has recently passed away. According to MoviesBizz he was found, believed to have committed suicide by drowning.
Toshiharu Ikeda was born on February 23, 1951 in Yamagata, Japan who started his career as a director and screenwriter in the early 80's who released such classics as Evil Dead Trap one of my personal favourites which earned quite a bit of controversy in the states upon release, also Mermaid Legend, Beautiful Beast and the infamous series Angel Guts.
