Flicks: Vampire Girl vs Frankenstein Girl (2009)


East meets West somewhere in the upper thigh region of a Japanese schoolgirl? Well... I'm in.

Directors Yoshihiro Nishimura and Naoyuki Tomomatsu both have unique horror backgrounds that are pitted against each other as they co-pilot this wild Japanese horror/action film Vampire Girl vs Frankenstein Girl (2009).

Nishimura, the Frankenstein half of this duo is clearly obsessed with machinery and human's interaction with it as seen in his SFX work for Machine Girl (2008) and Tokyo Gore Police (2008) which he wrote and directed.

Tomomatsu, the Vampire/Dracula side of this directing duo, has a background in gore as well with his shocking directorial debut Eating Schoolgirls: Osaka Telephone Club (1997) featuring a young couple whom a yakuza gang force to find victims for sadistic rape/snuff films. Both of them are sexually obsessed; one is addicted to telephone sex whilst the other can only function sexually, whilst seeing mutilated female corpses. Bloody stuff.

The two horror director combine their talent and knowledge on this very watchable film. After making it Tomomatsu, perhaps influenced by the collaboration made Maidroid 2: Maidroid vs. Hostroids (2010) and Erotibot (2011). Nishimura, in the past two years alone, has worked in SFX and make-up for 20 films.
