Vampire Girl Vs Frankenstein Girl (2009)

Yoshihiro Nishimura brings to life another absurd gore spectacle in VAMPIRE GIRL VS FRANKENSTEIN GIRL with more of the same mindless murder and mayhem that has made him a cult sensation in Japan. Nishimura had previously served as the special effects supervisor on MACHINE GIRL and MEATBALL MACHINE before directing his own insane splatterfest TOKYO GORE POLICE, and here he applies the same comic book action and over-the-top violence from before. The new girl on campus seduces Mizushima into a steamy romance, but his bitter ex-girlfriend refuses to give him up. What neither of them know is that Monami is a bloodthirsty vampire, and she has infected Mizushima with her curse. Keiko relies on the help of her father, a brilliant but utterly psychotic scientist, who transforms her into the fearsome Frankenstein Girl using a drop of Monami's blood. The two must battle it out atop Tokyo Tower, with Mizushima's love hanging in the balance! This intentionally offensive Horror Comedy is steeped in foul humor and ridiculous gags, earning itself a couple of cheap laughs long the way in an otherwise idiotic plot. The titular battle of the beasts is an unsurprising let down as compared to Nishimura's earlier films, but the geysers of blood and monstrous exploding head sequences that lead up to it will not disappoint. Thankfully, Yuki Kawamura and Eri Otoguro are both cute and campy as the two teen leads in a pair of entertaining performances. As the title implies, VAMPIRE GIRL VS FRANKENSTEIN GIRL can't be watched with even a shred of seriousness, and can only be appreciated for the tasteless bloodbath that it truly is.

Rating: 5/10.
Entertainment: 7/10.
Gore: 10/10.

  3. I preferred TGP and Machine Girl over this one by far, but who can deny the awesomeness of a girl dancing in a rain of blood?

  4. A woman fires nail-shaped projectiles out of her own blood!

    That's all I need to say.
