Erotibot

In the tradition of the powerful, earth-shattering Big Tits Zombie and the ultra bloody magic-filled gore-fest Horny House of Horror, comes a story of love, erotica, betrayal, action, gore and tears!

 Thus proclaims the box cover of director Naoyuki Tomomatsu’s new outing Erotibot, which in the spirit of his previous film Vampire Girl vs Frankenstein Girl is a frenetic, blood-soaked cornucopia of martial arts, nudity and downright insanity, all of which occur in roughly equal measure. 

Starring delectable AV Idols Maria Ozawa and Asami Sugiura as sisters engaged in a bitter struggle for their ailing father’s estate, this gleefully madcap romp features all the hallmarks of the J-splatter genre, namely inventive microbudget special effects, swordplay, liberal nudity and torrents of fake blood, and while never really reaching the comparative heights of say Vampire Girl or Mutant Girl Squad does provide plenty of enjoyment for genre fans willing to immerse themselves in its unrelenting silliness. 

I personally found the eponymous android ‘love assassins’ a little too bizarre and annoying to really immerse myself in the film – I’m perfectly willing to suspend my disbelief to the point where a chainsaw can emerge from a young lady’s nether regions, as in Mutant Girl Squad, but watching a slew of white-faced gimps in retro headphones whirring about inanely for 74 minutes did eventually get a trifle grating, sponge bathing scenes notwithstanding. 

The film is saved by an unrelenting belief in its own self-worth, an even more persistent belief in the (correct) assumption that an attractive, scantily clad young woman will compensate for a multitude of cinematic sins and able performances from the its two leads, who seem to relish their respective roles and whose real-life friendship may account for their on-screen compatibility. Not the finest entry into the J-splatter canon, but a madcap romp that will satisfy enthusiasts nonetheless. 

Special Features

Two lively and enjoyable interviews with the film’s sultry female leads are on offer in this regard.  That with Asami runs around 10 minutes and is conducted in Japanese with English subs, while the interview with half-Japanese Maria Ozawa runs 20 minutes and takes place in English.  Both ladies are charming and forthright, particularly the lovely Ozawa, and offer a variety of interesting insights into their lives and careers – as a bonus feature these are an extremely nice touch.  A trailer for the film is also included.
