Product description

Product Description

Voted Best International Horror Feature Film 2010 by Gorezone readers

From the man (Yoshihiro Nishimura) behind the outrageousness of Tokyo Gore Police and The Machine Girl comes this crazed response to both Twilight and Let the Right One In, a film that consistently overwhelms the viewer in its sheer dementia

High school student Mizushima receives Valentines Day chocolates from the new student, Monami. Little did she know that the chocolates contained traces of Monami's vampire blood. He gets infected from eating them and Monami confesses that she wants to live with him forever as vampires. Meanwhile, Mizushima decides that he wants to fully become a vampire with Monami's help. Keiko, Mizushima's girl friend, sees the two on the school rooftop kissing and in a state of hysteria, attempts to throw Monami off the roof but falls off herself instead.

Keiko dies but her father, Kenji Furano, the mad scientist, resurrects her as Franken girl. Thus begins a deadly combat between Franken Keiko and Vampire Monami in the name of love.

As we all know, this kind of Vampire vs. Frankenstein conflict can only be solved by fighting, beating, stabbing, chewing, clawing and a showdown high atop Tokyo Tower!

Extras:

  • Making of Vampire Girl vs Frankenstein Girl ( 65 mins)
  • Japanese Release Day Stage Greetings with Stars & Directors. (20 mins)

    A mad scientist, Kenji Furano, hacks up students with special talents for their body parts so he can resurrect his daughter in his secret basement situated underneath the high school of his employment, thus creating Franken Girl. The carefully selected candidates include: the winner of the wrist cutting championship; the fast and dedicated Ganguro athlete (that looks like a cast-off family member of Craig David/Michael Jackson from the hit TV series Bo Selecta); and a chain smoking professor (played by Takashi Shimizu - director of Ju-on). The scientist and his assembled offspring seek revenge on the couple responsible for her death: Monami the vampire girl, her half vampire lover and school heart-throb come lady killer, Mizushima and Igor the hunchback janitor. Adding more spice to the mix is the unconventional love triangle between the three main characters which drives the story

    Top marks for artistic creativity and successfully blending humour with gore sprinkled with utter madness. Yoshihiro Nishimura has continued the stark, raving mad momentum he blasted his audience with in Tokyo Gore Police, thus creating a flick drenched in sheer dementia. Some scenes play out like a tripped out hippy cult fest hosted by the Manson family dressed in fetish outfits crossed with costume styles akin to those found in the '70's/'80's cult TV series Monkey, made all the more merrier with people dancing around in showers of blood. The Tarantino style soundtrack, with a '70's upbeat swagger, blissfully enhances the loopy images and encourages the viewer to have a little jig whilst watching young sassy babes in provocative uniforms get massacred in death scenes that would've been excellent fatality moves in the Mortal Kombat 2 computer game... arr happy days.

    This is as great as the title suggests; better even. Set in a Japanese high school, dealing with popular subcultures within a class. This is the coolest School ever depicted in a movie, for sure. The students grouping into their own chosen culture teams to hang out and express themselves through fashion and attitude. One group is African black obsessed, another suicidal and of cause, we have the cool chick bitches who rule the corridors. Monami (Yukie Kawamura) is the new girl to the school, quiet and calm in attitude and appearance, although, on the inside she is a crazy ancient vampire. Head of the bitches is Keiko (Eri Otoguro) who is out to impress the local school cool guy Jyugon (Takumi Saito), but Monami has other ideas. Meanwhile, there is a crazy scientist collecting dead kids creating super beings. With the body of the super bitch and the finding of the magical Vampire blood, along with it's life giving properties, Frankenstein Girl is born and the battle commences for Jyugon.

    This is nuts. It's colourful and gory, fast paced which rockets along with all sorts of madness thrown in for good measure. The acting is great, the camera work is fast and cool. The whole thing is just a lot of fun with crazy over the top gore to the extreme. I knew I'd like this film from the opening scene which has a girl getting her face bitten off, leaving just her skull spinning. Later, there is a scene with Frankenstein girl, power drilling an arm into her head to use as an impromptu helicopter type device. Crazy.

    Also, the music is a lot of fun. Kinda 70's game show/supermarket/kitsch. Marvellous. Directors, Yoshihiro Nishimura and Naoyuki Tomomatsu should be praised for this film!

    A really enjoyable little film with some grat touches. For a film of this genre the effects are pretty good and quite inventive in places (the vampire seeing people as walking circulatory systems works very well, the first attack in the park surprised me in a good way too plus loved the vampire blood in the test tube!) plus the obligatory lashings and lashings of fake blood. It's a shame it loses it's way and cheapens itself slightly in places with some cheap effects and prosthetics (the Frankenstein girl helicoptor and some of the nurse effects)but overall for this genre it's very well made and enjoyable.
    It's also not afraid to be slightly controversial and shocking - these range from the close ups of the bodies that had fallen from the car park roof (a bit gorier than I'd expected, but in a good way) to some things (as mentioned in other reviews) that are cultural differences that probably need a little warning. All aspects of this film are clearly meant to send up certain youth groups and attitudes but some will probably be a little shocking to western audiences. I found the national wrist cutting championship quite a nice send up but it's not the sort of thing you'd normally find in western entertainment. The handling of the Ganguro group was clearly not meant to offend but is certainly something you would ever, EVER see in western film - I think it's for each person to interpret as you will, personally I hadn't read any reviews beforehand so was surprised by it but can see it's not meant to offend.
    So, hopefully forewarned you'll take this film the way it's intended and enjoy a teenage vampire romance film that's very different, and much more enjoyable than most in this genre.
