Product Description

There are moments in Vampire Girl vs. Frankenstein Girl when you might find yourself idly wondering what Bram Stoker and Mary Shelley would think of all this. There's not too much time to ponder such a head-spinning proposition, however, because of all the spraying blood, teen skin cutting, and steampunk artificial limbs on display. Director Yoshihiro Nishimura, of Tokyo Gore Police notoriety, unleashes this little offering as a full-out, looney-tune romp through some of the goriest tropes of the circa-2010 Japanese horror flick. Insofar as there is a plot, it concerns a cluelessly glib vampire girl (Yukie Kawamura) who has the hots for her classmate (Takumi Saito), a boy she tries to "turn" by giving him a chocolate truffle filled with her own blood. (Why didn't anybody in the Twilight series think of that?) But she'll have to get past a determined rival (Eri Otoguru), whose father just happens to be a mad-scientist type looking for a test subject for his theories of reanimation. Suggesting that this qualifies as plot is something of a stretch; this movie is so spasmodically bizarre, and so slavish in putting out its cartoon-violent set pieces, that it simply barrels along according to its own demented logic. In short, those who like this kind of thing will go for it--and anybody who feels that a movie might attempt to make some feeble kind of logic, whether emotional or tonal or spatial, will be bored pretty quickly by the relentless attempts at zaniness. Various Japanese teen fads are satirized, the most startling of which is a group of school girls who try to look black--a side plot that, even though it aims at poking fun at a teen craze, uses such outrageous racial imagery that it stands out for its offensiveness in a movie that hungrily seeks to offend. --Robert Horton

5.0 out of 5 stars A fun movie Oct. 30 2010
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This movie is really fun and crazy. You must not take this movie seriously or you will hate it. The story is very simple, on valentine day in High-school a cute vampire girl try to seduce the most popular guy of her class. But it's not easy because the leader of the gothic girls club as already claimed him. But none of girls really care about his feelings. Pull from both side without having his word to say, for which girl he will fall.

This movie is made by two famous horror directors in japan, each with their own styles (you even have a cameo of Takashi Shimizu, the creator of the Juon series). It's wacky and have a lot of good special effects.

3.0 out of 5 stars crazy fun and cheap June 10 2011
By Sorpse
Format:Blu-ray
you can not call these movies good but they definatyly are entertaining and i absolutly appreciate what sushi typhoon is doing. I love the over the top blood spraying and ultra violence with a twisted sense of humor but with this movie and robo-geisha they almost pushed the cheese factor a little to far. Still it was definatly entertaining and i will continue to support sushi typhoon. One little problem i had with this movie was at least one scene where someones head is cut off and blood is pooring everywhere, it was way to obvious that there were hoses spraying fake blood in from 3 different directions just barely out of camera view, opposed to just from the open kneck woujnd. Im not sure if this was intentional or not but it just added to the cheapness. W/e though, youll either love it or hate it and although there are many flaws i still love whats going on here.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Turn Off Your Mind, Relax And Float Down Stream..." Aug. 19 2010
By 4-Legged Defender - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Based on a best-selling manga by Shungiku Uchida, this slice of dementia was fabricated for the hardcore audience of 'Tokyo Gore Police', 'Meatball Machine', 'Machine Girl' and 'Robogeisha', and ups the ante considerably when it comes to off-the-chain, over-the-top insanity, audacity and mind-melting hyper-violence.

A non-stop, balls-to-the-wall send-up of all the classic Universal horror flicks, we've got an adorable schoolgirl Vampire chick, a goth-girl gang whose leader becomes the Frankenstein girl after a fatal accident at the hands of the vamp chick, a hunchback dwarf who incinerates corpses left by the vamp, a school principal who's also the resident mad scientist / Dr. Frankenstein with a lab in the school basement, aided by an over-sexed faculty nurse who later becomes an undead killing machine at the hands of the good doctor. Have I got your attention yet?

And we're just scratching the surface of this psychotically-psychedelic celluloid centerpiece of all things absurd, offensive and voraciously violent. Imaginative beyond your wildest dreams, unapologetic in it's insensitive use of stereotypes (there's a group of girls who wear afros, facepaint, big lips, put plates in their lips and gangsta rap, ghetto dance and spew Ebonics about Michael Jackson, Barack Obama, Joyce Joyner and Michael Jordan - remember, these are Asian girls!), this flick has more WTF moments than anything I've ever seen, and that's saying a lot.

Then there's a parody of disturbingly real-life adolescent behavior in Japan, the wrist-cutting kids (who do this out of boredom, rebellion and status-seeking), and here we have a school sanctioned, annual wrist-cutting championship contest that the kids practice for after classes. Needless to say, the arterial blood-spray quotient has never been higher in one of these movies, and I thought that crown went to 'Machine Girl' when I saw it for the first time. Guess again. Noah's Ark couldn't withstand this sanguinary storm.

As the film progresses, the violence gets more vehement, the gore more grandiose, the larger-than-life lunacy now nearing apocalyptic proportions - there are no words that can adequately prepare your senses for this onslaught. It just keeps on building steam until the frenzied finale and a tip-of-the-hat parody of 'Let The Right One In' along with so much more. The only thing missing was nudity, but now I'm just being gluttonous...

For a low-budget film, the special effects work most of the time (even when not so special), and you can't analyze or over-think what's happening on-screen without ruining it for yourself - this is a roller-coaster ride, one of the largest you've ever been on. If you thought about this, you'd probably never get on one, and if you've never ridden one, you won't enjoy this flick. You need to turn your mind off for a spell and get sucked into the bizarre madness on display. It's not for everybody, hell, it's not meant for most folks. But if you've seen the movies referenced above, you're already in the choir and need to check this one out immediately. (By the way, it's much better than 'Robogeisha', which I found to be a let down...).

5.0 out of 5 stars This movie is too funny ^_^ Nov. 20 2012
By taniwa - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Before I talk talk about this movie, let me discuss the issue of Blackface. Hi! I'm 22 and I'm, you guessed it, Black. And frankly, this movie showed me that the Japanese girls the Black club were just trying to hard to hard to be Black...that's it. They weren't being racist, they weren't picking on Black people, they weren't actually doing anything that was offensive. But if you were offended, then that's a personal problem!!! This movie is purely goofy, silly, and crazy beyond so many levels. The characters throughout the series are funny, while the CG and animation is so bad that it's amazing. It's one of those B-rated movies that you have to fall in love with, kinda like the Rocky Horror Picture Show. I would suggest this movie to anyone who wants a good laugh, and isn't up-tight about foreigners to admire a particular culture but sadly don't know a darn thing about it lol. I give this movie and Eric Vale 5 stars!

5.0 out of 5 stars What a sweet little movie......... Feb. 6 2012
By HBK - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Vampire vs Frankenstein girl, what can I say lol. I like this movie alot probably to much. I haven't been into these gore flicks long. In fact if it wasn't for the AVGN I would not have known about this kind of movie at all. He did a review for Robo Geisha. It was so over the top and weird I checked it out, along with this and others. But before I go on let me cover one sensitive subject about this movie. That would be the gonguro girls aka the girls in black face. I have to state this. I am a black person, I have to state that so people will not lable me a racist for not being offended by it. In fact I was, I almost didn't get this movie because of it. It rubbed me the wrong way and trust me that is very, very hard to do. The title of the movie just made want to buy it so I gave in. The more I saw them the sillier they looked. I am familiar with the whole over tanning thing that some of them do. It just looks cartoony and believe it or not it fits in the context of this movie with everything being over the top. They are on the opposite side with that wrist cutting click. I found the scenes with them funny, they just look stupid. Funimation tried to cover themselves with a line in the dubbed version with one of the girls stating that isn't this kinda racist with what where doing. That isn't the line in the subbed version. This isn't the first time they have done this. In an anime called Shuffle there where various groups of guys that where fans of the main characters in this anime. Well one groups acronym was kkk, which stood for the Knights of Kissy Kiede. Well over there thats cool that group does not exist. But, over here in the states thats a different story. So every time this group would announce themselves they would always state that they where not the guys in the scary sheets. So I guess Funimation was doing a little damage control. I can't say these girls added a whole lot to the movie. But it did not bother me much when it was all said and done.

Now enough of that, on with what I thought of the movie. This by far is my favorite of this kind of flick. Its like watching a anime. With the whole high school love triangle story. Its alot of fun and lots and lots of blood. The scene where Vampire Girl kills this guy in a park and it rains a shower of blood is the best scene in the movie. This very silly yet catchy song is playing she's dancing underneath a shower of blood. It is ridiculous to say the least. Then you have the wrist cutting girls or as they say it "wristo cuto". Those scenes where the only ones that made me cringe a bit. I found them really funny. There a very demented group of young ladies lol. You just have to see them, they need help. You sit and watch this thing and all you say is WTF am I watching. I found this movie to be pretty light hearted. There are things that are disturbing,and it is not for everyone at all. Forget the black face stuff. There is enough in this to turn off alot of people for various reasons. When it was all said and done I really enjoyed this film. I have watched it so many times it doesn't make any sense. I even got the wall scroll for this. Yeah I like it that much. I highly recommend it if you are a fan of this kind of cinema, or if you like anime. If your not into that I don't know if I would suggest the average person look at this. You just have to go with the flow. Don't get bent out of shape by what is happening and enjoy what they are trying to sell. Peace..........

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fountain of Bloody Fun! Oct. 20 2011
By root - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
How can you describe this wonderment of J-Cult cinema? If continuity errors bother you, then don't even try this film. But if you love outlandish, unpolitically correct, over the top, bloody violence humor, you'll love this! It's actually a sweet little Japanese high school romance story. No, really! LOL! I think part of what makes this one enjoyable over a lot of other J cult movies is it's simple easy to understand core story. But oh all the things that come barrelling your way, you just have to sit back, go with the flow and enjoy all the WTF moments. I'll avoid mentioning any specifics, I first saw this at a film festival knowing nothing at all about it, and that was the best!
