- Posted by Deljhp - 20/02/10 at 11:32 AM
Director: Yoshihiro Nishimura & Naoyuki Tomomatsu. Review: Adam Wing.
From the makers of Tokyo Gore Police, The Machine Girl and Samurai Princess comes the most romantic movie of the year. Probably. Tokyo Gore Police director Yoshihiro Nishimura teams up with Zombie Self-Defence Force director Naoyuki Tomomatsu for cult hit Vampire Girl vs. Frankenstein Girl. Based on Uchida Shungiku's manga, Vampire Girl vs. Frankenstein Girl stars Yukie Kawamura (Carved 2) and Eri Otoguro (OneChanbara: The Movie), with support from Takumi Saitoh, Eihi Shiina and J-horror director Takashi Shimizu.
Schoolgirl Monami (Yukie Kawamura), complete with fetching school uniform, is in love with classmate Mizushima (Takumi Saitoh), unfortunately he already has a hot Japanese girlfriend called Keiko (Eri Otoguro). It’s Japanese tradition for girls to give boys chocolate on Valentines Day and Monami is no exception, apart from the whole sexy vampire schoolgirl thing of course. She laces her chocolate in order to infect Mizushima with vampire blood, before confessing her true identity and undying love for him. Unbeknown to the pair of them, Keiko is clearly the jealous type, and she does what any raging psychopath of a girlfriend would do in this type of situation; she attempts to throw Monami off the school roof. However, things don’t go according to plan and she falls to her death instead, I bet you can see where this is heading. It turns out that Keiko's father (Kanji Tsuda) is a mad scientist who resurrects his daughter using the body parts of dead classmates (no longer in school uniform). Vampire Girl and Frankenstein Girl face off in the bloodiest, funniest, and most outrageous Yoshihiro Nishimura splatter-fest yet....Continue review here.
