Here’s a trailer that has been a bit of an Internet sensation this week. Vampire Girl vs. Frankenstein Girl is the straightforward title for a very twisted film by special effects expert Yoshihiro Nishimura of Tokyo Gore Police fame. Co-directed by Naoyuki Tomomatsu, and based on a manga by Shungiku Uchida, it’s a transgressive love triangle story featuring teenage girls with special powers vying for the love of a boy.
Eri Otoguro plays Keiko, the Frankenstein Girl, stitches and screws holding her face together.
Please be warned, the trailer features way over the top gore with exploding heads, hacked limbs and industrial strength arterial spray. It’s something like a live action Itchy and Scratchy cartoon and all very funny if you’re in the right mood. The only really offensive thing about it is the blackface character.
The film is currently in production and should premiere in North America at Montreal’s Fantasia film festival in July.
Here’s the trailer, on YouTube. NSFW.
