Customer Review

on 5 May 2010
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!
