Vampire Girl vs. Frankenstein Girl

The Japanese have a knack of taking Western themes and transferring them into something totally unique and making it their very own. Vampire Girl vs. Frankenstein Girl is one of these packages which take Western myths, juggles them around, throws them in a mixer and then places them into Japanese society for an interesting horror action film set in a Tokyo High School. Like all good high schools, there are several factions in the school, some with darker secrets than others.

Vampire Girl vs. Frankenstein Girl begins with new student Monami being transferred to this strange new school. To make this transfer easier for Monami, she has her eye on fellow student Mizushima  (Takumi Saito) and as a gesture of friendship, she gives him some special chocolate. A beautiful girl giving you chocolate? Of course you would say yes!

However upon consuming the chocolate, Mizushima begins to see surreal bloody imagery as he walks the school grounds. This is caused by his chocolate being spiced with Monami’s vampiric blood. But to make matters worse for our male himbo, Mizushima has another person interested in him, Keiko, the leader of a gothic group of school girls who happens to be the daughter of the principle as well. As both the girls fight for the affection of Mizushima, Keiko accidentally gets killed but fortunately her father is a mad scientist with a drop dead gorgeous nurse and thus… Frankenstein Girl rises!

Without spoiling the movie, Vampire Girl vs. Frankenstein Girl is a fun movie that features black comedy, horror, romance and action which comes together quite well, especially with all the clichéd factions of the school. The movie is quite over the top, especially with the battles and is almost like a Japanese cartoon from its outrageousness.

Add in the great cinematography and Vampire Girl vs. Frankenstein Girl works well on all levels, especially on a titillation level that males will drool over. The DVD video quality is presented in widescreen with some very surreal colours that only compliments the movie. The sound is Dolby Digital 2.0 which sounds clear and features a very fun and boppy soundtrack that goes hand in hand with the storyline. Recommended but not for those who despise gore because this film is a splatter fest!
